Party’s Over: The Unemployed Have Their Moment In the Sun

Although at the very moment I am writing this I am contemplating my use of third person in this posts title, the truth is, I did not participate in the first ever Unemployed Olympics, organized by in the perfect locale for New York’s newly downtrodden demographic: Tomkins Square Park.

Twenty-six year old recently unemployed Nick Goddard threw the whole thing together, including Registration at the Unemployment Office, Pin the Blame on the Boss and office phone skee-ball. Winners stood atop cardboard boxes to receive their glory. First place: a $40 gift certificate to Curly’s Vegetarian Lunch.

    Darn. I should have sent Bhagavan to participate. Unemployment and prizes? Sounds like a party to me.
