Bizarre job interview question asks, What would you do with an elephant if you couldn’t give it away or sell it?

Have you ever had a job interview where they threw one of those brainteaser questions at you to see how you think on your feet?  This is like an extreme example of that…

A woman named Beeta Golshani in Los Angeles tweeted out a picture of a question she got on an online job interview.  She wrote, quote, “This is definitely the most bizarre question I have ever seen on a job application.”..

The question is, quote, “You’ve been given an elephant.  You can’t give it away or sell it.  What would you do with the elephant?”

One person said they once took a course on how to respond to interview questions and there’s actually a correct answer:  “Open a business where you hire the elephant out for events.”

But I like some of the other people’s ideas more, like:  “Unfortunately I can no longer work here, raising this elephant is my full-time job.  We are going to travel from town to town solving mysteries” or “Give me the job or my elephant will sit on your car.”
