Stupid Interview Question -- Jackson Pollock edtion

Hollywood execs act would act like petulant children if they only knew what "petulant" meant. Luckily they can barely understand dialogue from Two and a Half Men, so sesquipedalians they are not.

But never mind that. Hollywood execs look at their lives as one big party periodically interrupted by a few hours of "work." How else can you explain that your boss NEVER gets to the office before noon and has expensible drinks four nights a week?

Which brings us to today's Stupid Interview Question. I wish I could say this was some sort of mental slip up. But sadly, it's from the same interview that asked me if I knew how to ride a Ducati...

"Can you put together a Paintball Party?"

My "Film History and Criticism" professor would be so pleased to know that I watched Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari, Bronenosets Potyomkin, The Birth of a Nation, Un Chien Andalou and Citizen Kane so I could figure out whether to buy the "gun" with the 3000 or 4500 PSI air canister. Such decisions.

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