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

stop and think about it and decide on your answer BEFORE you look at the answer

~the correct answer~
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?

~the correct answer~
open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door.
(i bet you thought, open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator? – 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?

~the correct answer~
the elephant, he’s 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)

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

~the correct answer~
you jump into the river and swim across.
(this tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes. have you not been listening? all the crocodiles are attending the Animal Conference!)

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 proves the theory that most professionals do not have the brains of a four-year-old.

~*HAPPY FRIDAY*~

what’s on for the weekend?!

i’ll be getting my seed growing station set up inside (here’s last year’s operation), turning over the crimson clover to create that green manure i was raving about, planting pepper seeds (i know, i’m a little late on this!), and running 9 miles (i have 15k & 10 mile races at the end of the month and the half marathon may 6th!)
