'Unemployment Olympics' fills a need

unemployedoly_optSo heaven forbid if you are one of the 13 million unemployed Americans trying to adjust in these perilous times.

You may be angry.  Maybe you want to vent.

Well, New Yorkers always seem to have the inside track when it comes to novel ways of blowing off steam.  Instead of complaining, why not have some fun and games and have an “Unemployment Olympics!”  Yes, indeed, call it the Olympics for the Down and Out.


It featured a Fax Machine Toss, a Pin the Blame on the Bosses and a Pinata Bash.

A laid-off computer worked recently organized the event in Manhattan’s Tompkins Square, which was the site of labor riots in the 19th century and in the 1980s was overrun with homeless.
