    How Would You Answer These Four Questions?

    How Would You Answer These Four Questions?

    90 percent of adults get every one wrong. But preschoolers do well!


    QUESTION 1: How would you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?





    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.)

    QUESTION 2: How would you put an elephant into a refrigerator?





    The correct answer: Same as above? Wrong. Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant, and close the door. (This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.)

    QUESTION 3: The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All animals attend, except one. Which animal does not attend?





    The correct answer: The elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there. (This tests your memory.)

    QUESTION 4: There is a river you must cross, but it is known to be frequented by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage?





    The correct answer: You jump into the river and swim across. All the crocodiles are attending the animal conference. (This tests whether you learn from your mistakes.)

    So…how well did you do?

    Nope, never claimed or believed I was smarter than a kindergartner.
    And this little quiz just proved that in spades! Sigh.

    My answer was, "why would anyone want to put a giraffe in a refrigerator"?

    No problem for me, a giraffe, elephant would not fit into my refrigerator, even if it was totally empty. I would not be anywhere close to where alligators hang out, that was no problem for me also. I guess maybe I am too practical.

    This reminds me of a joke that I thought was *VERY VERY* funny when I was young.

    Why do elephants wear sunglasses?



    Answer: So they won't be recognized.



    What did Tarzan say when he saw the elephants coming?


    Answer: "Here come the elephants."



    What did Tarzan say when he saw the elephants coming wearing sunglasses?



    Answer: Nothing. He didn't recognize them.



    LOL, I still think it's funny.

    Mine too! But I did remember I put the elephant in the fridge so he couldn't go to the conference.
