Willy Snapp, 33 of nearby Puter Village says when gasoline reached $4 a gallon it was like a slap in the face to folks like him. He decided the best way to show his displeasure was to let people slap or punch him in the face, thereby bringing it to the attention of the world.
Willy Snapp takes one in the chops for his pocketbook.
Snapp's girlfriend, Betty Will, liked the idea and suggested he charge peopl so much per slap. Starting Wednesday night, Snapp took a bar stool at Duffy's Pub on Gussel St. and let patrons have at him for $5 a slap or three for $10. Ms. Will took the first punch causing Snapp's lip to split and swell. He managed a grin and she let him have it again, inciting the small crowd to line up with cash in hand.
Snapp would not disclose the amount of money he has raised, but said the IRS is now hounding him. He also reported having a full tank of gasoline in his Buick. "It's worth it," he said, "Even if my eyes are swelled shut."
