Getting Spanked

Ripped from the scripts of Boston Legal? No, this is real, but I really think this is one for Allen Shore:
FRESNO, California (AP) -- Lawyers for a woman spanked in front of co-workers as
part of what her employer said was a team-building exercise asked a jury Wednesday for at least $1.2 million for the humiliation she says she suffered.

Janet Orlando, 53, quit her job at the home security company Alarm One Inc. and sued, alleging discrimination, assault, battery and infliction of emotional distress.

Employees were paddled with rival companies' yard signs as part of a contest that pitted sales teams against each other, according to court documents. The winners poked fun at the losers, throwing pies at them, feeding them baby food, making them wear diapers and swatting their buttocks.
Wow, brilliant team building exercises. I hope someone uses this method as an icebreaker at some future training event I attend.
