RE: Oddball job interview questions
These are some questions we really ask during interviews to see how a guy reacts to the unexpected:

1. What color is your brain?
2. If you could be a tree, which one would you be?
3. When you close your eyes, what do you see?
4. Mary Ann or Ginger?
5. Is the boss ALWAYS right?
6. Should the ground cause a fumble?
