    Test For Smart People

    The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you whether
    you are qualified to be a professional. Scroll down for each answer. The
    questions are NOT that difficult. But don't scroll down UNTIL you have
    answered the question.

    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. Continue.

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

    Did you say, 'Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the
    refrigerator?' Wrong Answer. 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 previous 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. You
    just put him in there. This tests your memory.

    Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you
    still have one more chance to show your true abilities. Continue.

    4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by alligators and you
    do not have a boat. How do you manage it?

    Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not
    been listening? All the alligators are attending the animal meeting. This
    tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

    According to Anderson 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

    My answer was; you don't put giraffes and elephants in the refrigorator!!!


    First you would have to knit them scarfs and hats to keep them warm!

    These things are best approached w/ calmness and a sense of purpose.
    Let me get a pen and paper.

    Now, then. (Well which is it? Now or then?)


    If you have one elephant and one giraffe and the score of Lion King was written by Hans Zimmer, and there's one more river to cross,

    and you're only four and you can't swim, how many grains of Tim Rice does it take, no that's not it....

    Ok, let's start at the beginning and take these one at a time.

    If Elton John was riding on an elephant and he wanted a cold drink from a refigerator...

    If you can laugh all things are possible.

    Rock, which wanted the cold drink? The elephant or Elton John?

    I'm still trying to figure out why you'd want a giraffe in your refrigerator!

    Gretchen. It WAS ambiguous.

    Doncha think Elton is a funny name? When I was a kid it was a surname. There was a kid named Conway Elton in the class ahead of me.

    I looked at this post to see how many smart people there are here. I am not one of them according to this quiz. I forgot all the animals were at the conference.
