News, but not the serious kind
This shore isn’t much of a school….
Blog Guy, it’s been three whole weeks since you spotted the most recent sign of that onrushing Apocalypse. Can I bring my family out of the panic room now?
Not just yet. Were you aware that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, from “The Jersey Shore,” spoke at Rutgers University recently and the school paid her $32,000?
Wow, that’s a butt-load of money!
Yeah, it’s $2,000 more than Rutgers is paying author Toni Morrison to speak at their graduation next month, and Morrison has won the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Snooki reportedly told the Rutgers brain trust that came to see her, “Study hard, but party harder.” In case you don’t watch the show, here’s a photo of Snooki with her book.
You’re kidding! Somebody from “The Jersey Shore” has read a book?
Nah, she wrote one, as if she’s a real author like Mark Twain or Justin Bieber.
Yikes! Say, Blog Guy, isn’t this a conflict of interest for you? Don’t you write your blog for Rutgers?
No, I write for Reuters, and unlike Rutgers, Reuters doesn’t hand money to untalented, embarrassing, inarticulate clowns. I mean like, except, you know…
