    There was a student who was desirous of taking admission for the IIM <br />study course. He was smart enogh to get through the written test, a GD and <br />was to appear for the personal interview.<br /><br />Later, as the interview progressed, the interviewer found this boy to be bright since he could answer all the questions correctly. The interviewer got impatient and decided to corner the boy "Tell me your choice," he said to the boy "Whats your choice? I shall either ask you ten easy questions or ONE real difficult. Think well before you make up your mind!"The boy thought for a while and said my choice is ONE real difficult question."<br /><br />"Well, good luck to you ,you have made your own choice!" said the man on the opposite side. "Now tell me this. What comes first, Day or Night?" <br />The boy was jolted first but he waited for a while and said, "It's the DAY sir!"<br /><br />"How?????????" the interviewer was smiling at last. "I got you" he said to himself "Sorry sir, you promised me that you will not ask me a SECOND difficult question!" And the admission for the course was thus secured<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' /><br /><br /><b>Talent is what you possess; genius is what possesses you.</b><br /><br />hsGoswami<br />ghemant@gmail.com<br />"Humans don't have Caliber to PASS TIME , Time it self Pass or Fail Humans" - by Hemant Goswami<br />

    Hm, reminds me of some old Monty Python joke. Deliberately taken fromhttp://www.rit.edu/~smo4215/monty.htm#Scene 1


    quote:
    ARTHUR: There it is! The Bridge of Death!
    ROBIN: Oh, great.
    GALAHAD: Look!
    ARTHUR: There's the old man from Scene 24!
    BEDEVERE: What is he doing here?
    ARTHUR: He is the keeper of the Bridge of Death. He asks each
    traveller five questions--
    GALAHAD: Three questions.
    ARTHUR: Three questions. He who answers the five questions--
    GALAHAD: Three questions.
    ARTHUR: Three questions may cross in safety.
    ROBIN: What if you get a question wrong?
    ARTHUR: Then you are cast into the Gorge of Eternal Peril.
    ROBIN: Oh, I won't go.
    GALAHAD: Who's going to answer the questions?
    ARTHUR: Sir Robin!
    ROBIN: Yes?
    ARTHUR: Brave Sir Robin, you go.
    ROBIN: Hey! I've got a great idea. Why doesn't Launcelot go?
    LAUNCELOT: Yes, let me go, my liege. I will take him
    single-handed. I shall make a feint to the north-east--
    ARTHUR: No, no, hang on hang on hang on! Just answer the five
    questions--
    GALAHAD: Three questions.
    ARTHUR: Three questions as best you can. And we shall watch...
    and pray.
    LAUNCELOT: I understand, my liege.
    ARTHUR: Good luck, brave Sir Launcelot. God be with you.
    KEEPER: Stop! Who would cross the Bridge of Death must answer me these questions three, 'ere the other side he see.
    LAUNCELOT: Ask me the questions, bridge-keeper. I'm not afraid.

    LAUNCELOT: Oh, thank you. Thank you very much.
    ROBIN: That's easy!
    KEEPER: Stop! Who approaches the Bridge of Death must answer me
    these questions three, 'ere the other side he see.
