MTV's Jersey Shore show may have dominated the winter TV ratings and even created a cult following for Snooki's poof, but there's an Anti-Jersey Shore revolution brewing. A new dress code sign outside of the New Orleans club and lounge Republic, first posted on FailBlog, states the bar's intolerance of Jersey Shore fashion—cleverly worded, of course. This image then went viral via Twitter and Facebook as people who watched the show, but hated the style, found it an apt expression of their own opinion. It says:

But that's not all! Read in between the lines to see that Republic has named specific brands that are unwelcome at the live music venue: Affliction, Ed Hardy and Christian Audigier. And a final "NO EXCEPTIONS," drives home the point. Apparently not "every man is king," as the club's mantra suggests, but only those who leave the Jersey Shore look where it belongs?at the Jersey Shore.
