Simply Fired teaming up with the Diceman for Prank Contest

I just got this announcement from SimplyFired. One of the judges is Andrew Dice Clay. This should draw a crowd...!

Simply Fired Celebrates Website Relaunch With 1st Annual Office Pranks Contest: Comedian Andrew Dice Clay Among Celebrity Judges for Submissions to "The Prankies"

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 02, 2007 -- Simply Fired (, the community humor site run by job search engine Simply Hired (, today announced both a relaunch of their site and a contest to commemorate the relaunch: "The Prankies." The Prankies is not your ordinary contest -- but then again, Simply Fired is not your ordinary website! The new and improved Simply Fired includes fan favorites like the blog and the forums, but also allows for video and photo submissions, RSS feed, and other nifty functions.

About the Contest

To celebrate the relaunch of Simply Fired (, we are hosting a contest honoring the time honored tradition of office pranks. While we are not encouraging you to get yourself fired by putting your co-workers' office supplies in Jell-O or replacing your boss' contact list in Outlook, we know that you have some stories to share. Your stories will be posted on Simply Fired, and the best ones (as voted by Simply Fired's loyal readership) will win a prize. Dig into the recesses of your mind to recall some humorous hijinks of jobs past -- it can be cathartic and you might even win some free stuff. We will accept stories of your pranks in the form of video submissions, photographic evidence and even the lo-tech written word.


The Grand Prize involves Las Vegas, which is all we will say for now. "Limited Edition" Simply Fired "Prankies" shirts for all category winners, including:

*Fired Fan Favorite
*Best Way to Get Fired
