Favorite Disorienting Interview Questions from the Past

Try facing these delights in an interview situation. Feel free to provide your own responses, who knows, I may need them in the future:

(1) German Chocolate Cake or Key Lime Pie?

(2) A patron returns an expensive art book which she announces she has "made suitable" for the public. Among the items removed is a print of Botticelli's Birth of Venus. What do you do?

(3) Name an age-level appropriate (age 5-8) book about nuclear holocaust.

(4) What is the appropriate term for the conflict occurring between 1860 and 1865 in the United States? (In some states and portions of states the correct answer to this one is a make-or-break)

(5) What is your greatest weakness and how would you market it as a strength? (And they didn't take any of those answers that are strengths wrapped up in weaknesses from a business point of view--you know the "I"m a workaholic" kind of answers.)

(6) If you were constructing a CD-ROM for an audience of blind people, how would you design the interface to indicate interactability of several colored pieces in forming a tessalated surface?

(7) Goya or Van Gogh?

(8) Bach or Mozart? (My answer here--do I have to choose?)
