A laid-off computer programmer came up with the idea to lift the spirits of the jobless with silly events including 'pin the blame on the bosses', a telephone toss and a race to the unemployment office. Reminded me of that scene in 'Office Space' when they destroy the fax machine. Hopefully it was therapeutic.
