(Newser) – Glamorous, it ain't. Lindsay Lohan will begin working at a morgue as punishment for her most recent drunken driving conviction, the AP reports. Lohan will put in two days of community service at the morgue and another two in a hospital emergency room. The court-ordered program is aimed to illustrate the consequences of driving while drunk.

Lohan pleaded guilty last summer to misdemeanor drunken driving and cocaine charges. She has spent two months in rehab and performed more traditional community service work, her lawyer says.
