Getting "Laid Off" is similar to getting Laid,

only with neither the lubrication or the enjoyment, and penetration occurs in other than the preferred orifice. Also known as occupational sodomy.
"In part due to the occupational sodomy scheduled the following week to be inflicted upon the backbone of the company (otherwise known as the workforce); Dick and Jane threw caution to the wind and performed rectal fornication on the center of the President's Desk, thereby getting laid immediately prior to getting 'laid off', moreover; achieving the added bonus of spewing onto the company's errant balance sheet a copious amount of chocolatey chocolate chip cocksnot out of the shitty end of the fuckstick of Dick".
