Jersey Shore’s Pauly D and Vinny Go Fly a Kite (PHOTOS)

With Snooki and The Situation grabbing all of the headlines lately, the rest of the Jersey Shore cast seems to be occupying itself with more mundane activities. Such as flying kites.

Celebrated guidos DJ Pauly D and Vinny Guadagnino hit the beach in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, on Monday to try their hand at kite-flying while lensing an episode of their hit series’ third season. Clearly, the duo were attempting to replicate Benjamin Franklin’s famous electricity-harnessing experiment, in an effort to invent their own tanning bed and thus circumvent the new tanning tax. Brilliant!
