Saturday Morning Brain Test...!

I found a little list of questions that will test some of your abilities this morning.

It's really an easy way to find out if you are qualified to be called a professional!
Besides, I think you might be a little surprised at the results.

Are You Professional?

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and tells whether you are qualified to be "professional". Scroll down for each answer. The questions are not that difficult.

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

The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe and close the door. This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.

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

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

Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your actions.

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

Correct Answer: The Elephant. The Elephant is in the refrigerator. This tests your memory. OK, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross. But it is inhabited by crocodiles. How do you manage it?

Correct Answer: You swim across. All the Crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

According to Andersen Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the professionals they tested got all questions wrong. But many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four year old.

Pass this around to frustrate all of your friends and associates.

Don't ask me how I did, 'cause I ain't telling! Know what I mean...?

Coffee in the kitchen this morning...unless you want to go sit in the rain! OK?

Well, That's just great!! Now I got an elephant stuck in my fridge. He drank all my wine, left tracks in the butter ate up all my peanut butter and I can't make him come out!!
The dammed giraffe ain't no help cause he went to the meeting!!!


HermitJim said...

Hey Ben...
My friend, you gave me what could be the best laugh of the day!

I laughed out loud when I read this comment! Great...!

Now my sides hurt from laughing so hard!

Many thanks for coming by and for the entertainment today, buddy!

JOJO said...

OK so I failed too. And Ben made me laugh even more. Thank you both for making me spit coffee everywhere. :)
I think I will sit in the kitchen not ready for a cold shower yet.

Well poop! I got the 1st one right but blew it on the 2nd, 'cause I have a big refrigerator.

Now, I have to go check for elephant and giraffe tracks in mah butter. I never thought of that. ARGH!

Felinae said...


Well...I got the first one right, but after that, it was all down hill. :)

Thanks for the laughs, have a great day!

I didn't do too well.

Mystic Mud said...

I failed, so I asked my kids....the first one siad he would "cut up" the Giraffe to get it in the refrigerator......not sure how I feel about that answer - he solved the rpoblem, but he would have also made a mess!!

HermitJim said...

Hey JoJo...
Ol' Ben made me laugh as well! Glad you got a kick out of it!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming by today!

Hey Paul...
Funny how such a seemingly simple thing can garner so many different answers.

Just a fun way to start the day!

Thanks for dropping in today!

Hey Felinae...
I'm always happy to see you! At least you got one right, so it's not all bad!

Thanks for the visit, my friend!

Hey Muddy...
You're in good company, my friend! Many of us had the same experience!

Thanks so much for taking the time to come by!

Hey Mystic...
Leave it to the kids to come up with a practical approach!

Thanks for dropping by today!
