Brilliant or Baffling: Celebrating a Layoff

The holidays might be over, but the season of losing jobs continues. I've heard of fed-up workers rounding up friends to celebrate quitting a job, but throwing a laid-off party is something new to me.

Real Simple writer Kate Parker shared the story of her friend who "has found a reason to celebrate even amidst one of life's cruelest moments," and sent her friends invitations to join together for a dinner party in honor of her job loss. The jobless friend gave the party a cheeky name (you can see her invitation by following the link, as long as you're comfortable with a curse word).

What do you think of this idea, is it brilliant or baffling?
