Archie Comics Bigshot -- Accused of 'Penis' Taunting

7/8/2011 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The female co-CEO of Archie Comics is accused of going on a phallic outburst in the office recently ... allegedly pointing at employees and shouting "PENIS, PENIS, PENIS, PENIS."  Oh, Archie!

Archie Comics Publications has filed legal papers against co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit -- claiming she has a history of bullying and sexually harassing employees ... and she must be stopped!

According to the lawsuit, filed yesterday in NY, several employees have lodged complaints about Nancy's "offensive" behavior ... including one time in 2009, when she barged into a meeting and "pointed to each [attendee] and said, 'PENIS, PENIS, PENIS, PENIS' and then walked out."

Nancy allegedly pulled the same "penis" stunt again in 2010 -- but this time she also screamed out, "My balls hurt."

Archie Comics claims it hired an outside firm to investigate the allegations -- and the company recommended Archie cut ties with Nancy ASAP.

Now, Archie wants a judge to grant an injunction -- barring Nancy from returning to the office ... and preventing her from representing the company at the upcoming Comic-Con in San Diego.

Attempts to reach Nancy were unsuccessful.

Those incidents don't sound like sexual harassment. Instead I'd be more worried my CEO is mentally unstable if she runs around doing things like that.

examples of social retardation: calling things like yogurt and mayonaise nicknames for 'sperm'/semen, ejaculate, when both of these things come from female body parts, namely, yogurt: milk, milk? breasts. duh. mayonaise? eggs. eggs? female reproduction cells. and so why are both of these food items referred to as descriptions for ejaculate? because people are retarded. it's a plain and simple fact.

62% say get over it?
guaranteed if this was a guy screaming "vagina!" or "boobs!", it would be a landslide vote for sexual harassment.

i will say this though, no its not a hugeee deal on a sexual harassment scale, but still S.H.

She's a Jew running a company that makes a product that has nothing to do with Jews and that no Jew would give a wet $#!! about. So excuse her being f#¢!!ed in the head - she's entitled.

Back in the 80's we had a boss that was sexually harassing people, including myself. At that time it was considered an annoyance. He finally got his when he harassed a new employee and her uncle was in the mafia. After her uncle got through with him, he never bothered anyone again.
