WATCH: 'Jersey Shore' Girls Play "Know or Go" on 'Ellen'

Snooki, J-WOWW, Deena and Sammi showcase their smarts in a hilarious game on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Know the difference between a carcass and a caucus? Aware that Judge Judy is the person who presides over the court on Judge Judy? If so, chances are you would have fared better than the lovely (and screechy) ladies of Jersey Shore did when they played a game of "Know or Go" on Thursday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Here's the set-up for this little game: J-WOWW, Deena and Snooki stand on a raised platform with a trapdoor beneath their feet. Host Ellen DeGeneres asks them questions. If they get the answer right, they stay; if they get it wrong, they go -- right through the trapdoor (and probably into a hot tub that's already occupied by Vinny, Pauly D and The Situation). And, if they're stumped -- and, yes, they do get stumped -- they can use a "Sammi Saver" to ask their castmate Sammi for some help. Watch the hilarity unfold in the video below!

While watching Snooki repeatedly yell "Eww!" as she anticipates her fall through the trapdoor is high-quality entertainment, arguably the best moment in the game comes when Ellen asks J-WOWW to define "caucus."

"You mean the part of the body?" J-WOWW replies, motioning to her cleavage. (We're assuming she's confusing "caucus" with "coccyx," which is familiarly known as the tailbone and thus would not be in the chest region. But maybe not.).

Things get even better when Sammi, who confidently insists that she knows the answer, realizes that Ellen said "caucus" and not "carcass." Those Jersey Shore girls: Always confusing political gatherings with roadkill!

Season 5 of Jersey Shore debuts Thursday night at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
