-- ORLANDO, Fla. -- Florida officials are investigating an unemployment agency that spent public money to give 6,000 superhero capes to the jobless.

Workforce Central Florida spent more than $14,000 on the red capes as part of its "Cape-A-Bility Challenge" public relations campaign.

The campaign featured a cartoon character, "Dr. Evil Unemployment," who needs to be vanquished.

Two weeks... seriously?

Wake up, folks... and smell the Thunderdome.
