Ever wonder how wayward celebrities pay their debts to society? You know, community service? Do they pick up trash, maybe serve soup in a homeless shelter?

New Yorkers know the answer already, of course. The procedure goes like this: Throw a phone a flunkie, get a plea deal, rock a Day-Glo vest during a stint at a trash truck garage, and then turn it all into a fabu photo shoot for W magazine. Right, Naomi Campbell? Fine. But what about for those stars born without killer legs?

Well, now we know. Poor Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, who recently got nailed for public drunkenness, must suffer through her community service by — and we are not making this up — signing autographs for three hours.

Per E! Online, Polizzi will do her penance at Seaside Heights Community Center this weekend to sign autographs, charging $10 per signature to benefit animal charity Donations of Love.


Asked how exactly this constitutes punishment, Polizzi’s attorney, Raymond Raya, told E!, ‘It can be quite painful to sign autographs for three hours.’

Sure. Almost as painful as having to pay 10 bucks to get that autograph.
