An interesting tidbit coming out of the NBA lockout. Will the locked out NBA players be able to file for unemployment checks? If so, will they get them?
I can see the scene now....
NBA player: Uh, yeah, I'm here to sign up for unemployment.
Unemployment office worker: How long have you been out of work sir?
NBA player: Since June.
Unemployment office worker: How much were you making in your previous job?
NBA player: $18 million a year.
Unemployment office worker: Have you been actively seeking employment in the last six weeks?
NBA player: Uh, I did apply at the Burger Barn but the manager said I was overqualified.
And then there is this offer from KFC.
