Web Site Devotes Itself to Strange Firings

On the lighter side of the web, an AP newswire article, via Yahoo! News, reports that:

Getting fired is rarely a happy event, but that doesn't mean you can't have a sense of humor about it. That's what Simply Hired, a 5-month-old employment-related Internet startup, counted on when it started an affiliated Web site devoted to the stories of workers who have received a pink slip for a silly, outrageous or embarrassing reason.

The Mountain View-based company is even offering a prize to the biggest "loser" — a Caribbean cruise that will include passengers famously fired by Donald Trump on his popular television show, "The Apprentice."
