"What Is Your Greatest Weakness?"

This is a common, but stupid job interview question. It was posed to the Democratic Presidential candidates at last night's debate. Jeff the Baptist on the question:

Have you ever had an interview for a position you realized you don't want? If that ever happens again, I'm just going to make something up and see what the interviewer does. "My biggest fault? I'm a pedophile. But I only indulge myself on my regular trips to Thailand. I figure I'm only there to smuggle heroine back to the States so it doesn't really count." Or "I'm incredibly flatulent, especially in enclosed spaces like elevators and interview offices. Must be my diet or something. Oh, excuse me."

Actually it was the Jan 15th debate.

And why is it that my posts about being a flatulent pedophile get more traffic than those portraying me as a heroic leader of men? Must be the alien mind-rays or something.

My greatest weakness? Is caring TOO much a weakness? Is working TOO hard a weakness? If so, then, yes, those would be my greatest weaknesses, sir...

My greatest weakness is that there's nowhere to go up when you're already perfect...

Giving money to a young man in whom I see great potential, only to find that he has let me (and himself) down once again. I am still praying that he will answer God's call.

That, or the Google-bomb.
