Rutgers University’s Programming Association paid $32,000 in student fees to
book one of the most prolific icons of our time: Snooki. Now the ungrateful
Rutgers student body is speaking out against this well thought-out decision.
Students have been tweeting over the ridiculousness of paying $2,000 more
for Snooki than they did for Nobel-prize winning author Toni Morrison. Uh,

That’s just insulting. Snooki requests payment of at least one keg.

appearance was sold out.
Maybe I’m misunderstanding, but the students had to pay on top of the
$32k? Good. Snooki deserves it. She is the voice of our generation:
“Study hard, but party harder,” Snooki told students.
Ah, so profound.
