This Snooki/Rutgers story has taken a new life form this past weekend. Apparently, some Rutgers’ parents were fuming over the fact that our bronze bowling ball got paid $10,000 more than what they pay to send their kids to the University. I do agree, it is kind of outrageous when it’s put in those terms. But the best part of all this drama is that Toni Morrison lent a comment to the NY Post about Snooki. She said, “I don’t know her . . . and I don’t care.”
That’s pretty damn priceless, and well put, isn’t it? And just for the record, Toni cut her fee in half because she used to teach at Rutgers. So, the fact that a nobel winning novelist can cut her fee, others should too (Snooki, Aziz, and the rest–take note).
I’m holding my stance on thinking that Snooki was a great get for the college soley for entertainment value, but I don’t think the school should have paid her $32,000. I bet the school had no idea this was all coming. And poor Snooks, she was just taking what she normally charges for bar appearances. I honestly don’t think she thought it through…if anything–this engagement was probably a pretty cool gig for her, as it was the closest she’ll ever get to a four-year.
