Stupid Interview Question -- Ansel Adams Edition

A new day has dawned in America. It's a time of unbridled hope and optimism that perhaps our $14/hour jobs won't go away quite yet -- unless you work for Warner Bros. Then you have a 1-in-10 chance that it will. Let us rejoice...

Now, because no matter who the President is, Hollywood executives can always find a way to out-stupid themselves. Thus I offer the following question one of my loyal readers received during a job interview...

"How does being in nature make you feel?"

Perhaps the exec meant to ask "How does 'taking a nature' make you feel?" The correct answer to that is "Slightly better than I do after watching Crusoe." Well, whatever. At least Obama is still President.

If you were the victim of a dumb interview question, please send them along to I promise your identity will be protected.

I don't know how old you are, Temp X, but here is a great interview question from a little 1988 John Hughes film which is asked upon Kevin Bacon:

"What do you think about alcoholics?"
