Have you heard? MTV sudster star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s sentence for being criminally annoying on the beach in Seaside Heights last summer involves a giant dose of self-promotion.

It’s the American Way, dont’cha know.

Informants tell Celebuzz.com that Snooki will work off a large chunk of her two-day community service sentence at the Seaside Heights Community Center, where she’ll sign autographs during an event to raise money for an animal charity.

The diminutive 22-year-old was fined and ordered to community service after she was arrested for a drunken outburst during filming for the forthcoming third season of MTV’s Jersey Shore in August.
