Funny money, indeed!

Saturday Night Live alum Tina Fey – whose NBC show, 30 Rock, just scored four Emmys – has signed a book deal with Little, Brown Book Group, the Associated Press reported Monday.

There is no official word on how much Fey will be pocketing for her work – pitched as more humor than memoir. But earlier this week, the New York Post reported that competing publishers were offering close to $6 million.

The mother-of-one has recently won raves for her dead-on impersonations of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
