Image of the Day: Gamestop employee fired for planking

It was just another day at Gamestop in Long Island, NY and employee (of four years) John Mazzocchi was thinking of ways to pass the time. So, he tweeted a couple pictures of himself planking in the empty store. Apparently, this caused quite a stir, because John was fired and ineligible for unemployment. Cautionary tale, folks: don't plank on the job.

(As pointed out in the comments below, four-year-long Gamestop employee John Mazzocchi took planking photos in crazier positions. We've swapped out the top shot with one of those. The original image is below. -Ed)
