A Little Too Friendly with the Customers

Yikes, my second naked old man post of the day:

MUSCATINE, Iowa (AP) -- A Wal-Mart greeter was sacked for apparently showing too much of his friendly side to customers.

Dean L. Wooten, 65, was accused of greeting customers with a computer-generated photo of himself in which he appeared to be naked -- except for a carefully placed Wal-Mart bag -- and of telling customers that Wal-Mart was cutting costs and the sack was the company's new uniform.

The reason for the firing was supposedly that the picture was inappropriate, but I think joking about how Wal-Mart doesn't exactly provide for its employees also may have played a part.
