Time for a brief humorous interlude

IQ test for professionals.
The rest of you can take this also.

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

Correct answer:
Open the refrigerator door, put the giraffe in, and close the door. This question tests whether or not you do simple things in a complicated way.

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

Wrong answer:
Open the refrigerator, put the elephant in, and close the door.

Correct answer:
Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put the elephant in, and close the door. This question tests your prudence and practicality.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals except one attend. Which one does not attend?

Correct answer:
The elephant. The elephant is still in the refrigerator and cannot open the door from the inside. This question tests whether or not you have comprehensive thinking skills.

If you did not answer correctly the first three questions, this next question is your last chance to show your qualification to be a professional.

4. There is a river inhabited by crocodiles. How do you manage to pass it?

Correct answer:
Swim through it. All of the animals, including the crocodiles, are attending the conference (except the elephant, of course).

Don't be frustrated if you failed this test. According to Andersen Consulting Worldwide, about 90% of the professionals failed the exam. However, most pre-schoolers got it correct, thus disproving the popular theory that most "professionals" have the brains of a four-year old.
