It's settled. Both John McCain and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi of Jersey Shore fame agree: Snooki, the master of the pouf and the tannest guidette on the beach (and possibly the country), is just "too pretty for jail."
This past week, after Snooki was arrested and briefly placed in the "drunk tank," she publicly called herself "too pretty" for jail. Later, the former presidential candidate said in an interview with KMLE radio that:
"I'm kinda leaning towards Snooki being too good-looking."
OK, then. Lucky for the rest of us, there are many people who just are not as cosmetically blessed (like this guy). But this defense is not without precedent. In 2005, Debra Lafave, the teacher who slept with her 14-year-old student, used it as well. And it worked.
Of course, the difference in that case was Lafave actually WAS pretty (and not in an Oompa Loompa way). But I digress.
So, take heart, Snooks! Here are a few other jailbirds who are almost as "pretty" as you:
Paris Hilton: In 2007, the heiress and actress/musician/reality star/famewhore served 23 days of a 45-day sentence for driving drunk.
Lindsay Lohan: The once-actress, more famous for partying, served 14 days of a 90-day jail sentence for violating her probation in a 2007 drug case.
Lil' Kim: In 2005, the rapper and entertainer served 10 months of a one-year, one-day sentence for her involvement with a 2001 shooting outside a nightclub in New York.
Michelle Rodriguez: The star of Lost and Avatar served 18 days in jail in 2007 after violating her parole on a previous drunk driving conviction.
Alexis Neiers: In July, the star of Pretty Wild (indeed) was released after serving 30 days of a 180-day sentence for trying to break into Orlando Bloom's house.
Should Snooki ever find herself publicly intoxicated and belligerent again, she should remember that no one, not even the upper .0007 percent of beauties, is above the law.
Do you think Snooki is "too pretty" for jail?
