An office manager was given the task of hiring an individual to fill
a job opening.After sorting through a stack of resumes he
found four people who were equally qualified.He decided to
call the four in and ask them only one question.Their answer would
determine which of them would get the job.
The day came and as the four sat around the conference room table
the interviewer asked:
“What is the fastest thing you know of?”
Acknowledging the first man on his right, the man replied, “A THOUGHT.
It just pops into your head. There’s no warning that it’s on the way;
it’s just there. A thought is the fastest thing I know of.”
“That’s very good!” replied the interviewer.
“And now you sir?” he asked the second man.
“Hmm….let me see. A blink! It comes and goes and you don’t
know that it ever happened. A BLINK is the fastest thing I know of.”
“Excellent!” said the interviewer. “The blink of an eye … that’s
a very popular cliche for speed.”
He then turned to the third man who was contemplating his reply.
“Well, out at my dad’s ranch, you step out of the house and on the

pasture the light in the barn comes on in less than an instant.
TURNING ON A LIGHT is the fastest thing I can think of.”
The interviewer was very impressed with the third answer and
thought he had found his man. “It’s hard to beat the
speed of light” he said.
Turning to the fourth and final man, the interviewer posed the
It’s obvious to me that the fastest thing known is DIARRHEA.”
“WHAT!?” said the interviewer, stunned by the response.
“Oh I can explain.” said the fourth man.
“You see the other day I wasn’t feeling so good and I ran for the
bathroom. But, before I could THINK, BLINK, or TURN ON THE LIGHT,
I had already sh*it my pants!”
HE GOT THE JOB…..
