Humor: What is Two and Two?

business humor

Today we have a story that is just for fun.

A business man was interviewing applicants for the position of divisional manager.

He came up with a test to select the most suitable person for the job.

It was a strangely simple test.

He asked each applicant, “What is two and two?”

The first interviewee was a journalist. His answer was “Twenty-two.”

The second applicant was an engineer. He pulled out a slide rule and showed the answer to be between 3.999 and 4.001.

The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case of Jenkins v Brown, two and two was proven to be four.

The last applicant was an accountant. The business man asked him, “How much is two and two?”

The accountant got up from his chair, went over to the door and closed it then came back and sat down. He leaned across the desk and said in a low voice…”How much do you want it to be?

He got the job.

Disclaimer: I like accountants, so don’t take this personally! 🙂
