Snooki gets $32K to appear on Rutgers campus

    The pouf is mightier than the pen when it comes to speaking fees at New Jersey’s largest university.

    The Rutgers University Programming Association paid Snooki of “Jersey Shore” fame $32,000 Thursday to dish on her hairstyle, fist pumps, and the gym, tan, laundry lifestyle.

    That’s $2,000 more than the $30,000 the university is paying Nobel-winning novelist Toni Morrison to deliver Rutgers’ commencement address in May.

    This is not an April Fool’s joke.
