Workforce Central Florida, a back-to-work agency run by local businesses but funding by the state, is handing out six thousand red superhero caper to local unemployed, part of a $73,000 campaign called the “Cape-A-Bility Challenge”involving the comic character “Dr. Evil Unemployment”. The capes themselves cost $14,200 and foam cutouts of Dr Evil Unemployment, another $2,300
To get your cape, you must take the What Superhero Are You Quiz on Facebook, become a fan of Workforce Central Florida on Facebook, tweet a job posting from the WCF, recommend someone on LinkedIn with the word Super and… get a photo of you with a foam cutout of Dr Evil Unemployment. www.bleedingcool.com...

Let's raise taxes so everyone can have a red cape! After all, giving red capes only to the unemployed is somehow ``racist or anti-semite or whatever``...
