Butt-Shaking Employee Wins Workers' Comp Appeal

The Iowa Supreme Court has ruled that an employee who said "hello" to a colleague by shaking his butt may be entitled to workers' compensation for the injuries he received when his colleague returned the unusual greeting by tapping him with a truck.  The tap was too hard.  (Courthouse News Service)

Thanks to my colleague, Kathy Jones, for the tip.
