Superhero capes for the unemployed
scholar - 20-4-2011 at 19:26

Here is the article.

An employment agency gave 6000 superhero capes to unemployed people, to inspire them to fight the fictional comic-book-type villain Dr. Evil Unemployment.

The capes cost thousands of dollars.:(

Who would actually wear such a cape?confused2

Certainly, such money could have been put to better use!

Yes, the money should have been given directly to those work shy scroungers so they could spend it on alcohol and drugs !

Who would actually wear such a cape? Taxi drivers ?

But would wearing a cape be a good enough disguise to fool the ever vigilant IRS investigators that tirelessly work to seek out tax evaders ?

Think of it this way, at least you'll have a roof over your head when they evict you...

It's all part of the Cunning Plan, it's so Cunning that even they don't understand it!

Now that is funny. giron but I think with an outfit like that Eorl would fly his customers to their destinations .he would not need to do taxiing any more especially with his 4 day food allowance from O'barmy

Once a cab driver, always a cab driver. ;)

They'd be better to give superhero capes to those of us who do work and pay taxes!

Don't despair, Matilda, I'm fairly certain our taxes don't go to support work shy Americans.
They're used to support our own shirkers and provide money for bankers bonuses, as well as bailing the banks out in the first place.

Naturally, GPO pensioners should be exempt from paying tax, as I'm sure you'd agree.

I think you should be forced back into employment till you're 90 to make up for the number of breaks you took while employed - Cameron has asked me to join a think tank as the caring face of the Tory party...

Just a ruddy moment, that can't be right ! shocked_yellow

Well, the bit about the number of breaks might but right, but forcing me back to work isn't. waggyfinger
