So a coworker of mine turned in his 2 weeks notice today (he’s moving on to bigger and better things, lucky guy). A group of us got to talking about what we’re going to do for his last day celebration, and I (somewhat jokingly) said that I’d take care of getting a pinata of soon-to-be-former-coworker’s likeness for the assembled masses to take turns destroying. Naturally, I offered the first whack to the guest of honor.
Long story short, about 2/3 of the group thought it was a hilarious idea, including the soon-to-be-former-coworker. One woman, however, was somewhat less then thrilled with the concept. I believe she said something about it being “rude, disturbing, gross and mean.”
Nevertheless, I still think it’s an awesome idea, although I’m not sure I’ll be able to locate a suitable pinata in time.
So what does the Dope think? Would you be offended at the idea of hitting a pinata verson of yourself?
