NEW YORK – Who hasn't secretly wished they could pin the blame on their boss? Or slam office equipment against the pavement?
Dozens of unemployed people got the chance to do exactly that during the homespun, tongue-in-cheek Unemployment Olympics at Manhattan's Tompkins Square Park on Tuesday.
In a twist on the classic game Pin the Tail on the Donkey, participants pulled a hat over their eyes and spun around before using a pushpin to attempt to Pin the Blame on the Boss.
Competitors also played a game of Office-Phone Skee Ball.
Nick McGlynn attended. He was laid off in November and says he's thrilled to have an activity to fill part of his day.
