There's nothing like a truly terrible idea to make a subpar idea seem marginally decent, no? In this case, we have William Ernst, the owner of QC Mart, a chain of convenience stores in Bettendorf, Iowa. Ernst decided a fun work thing to do to promote store bonding or whatnot would be to make his employees participate in a contest in which they'd predict who would next be fired. Whee! He even gave prizes to those who "won." Alas, the fun and games ended when he was taken to court, and a judge determined that his game was a "deplorable" act.
