No-one wants to be the weakest link....least of all Bafana Bafana's local assistant coach-in-waiting, Pitso "Jingles" Mosimane who encountered problems with some of the questions during the interview with Safa.
A usually (un)reliable source at Safa House gave us a print out of what transpired there.
He was asked, are you the weakest link? He said no, then Raymond Hack and Molefi Oliphant began the interview......
Below are four questions. You have to answer them instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately, OK?
Let's find out just how clever you really are, or whether you donated your brain at birth... Ready?
You are taking part in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?
Quick - what's the answer...? Time's ticking away...!
Pitso answered: First.
If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second.
We finally see who was last in line for intelligence.
Try not to mess up in the next question. To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question.
If you overtake the last person, then you are...?
If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again.
Tell me, how can YOU overtake the LAST person?
You're not very good at this, are you? All looks and no logic.
Very tricky maths. Note: This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.
Take 1 000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1 000. Now add 30.
Add another 1 000. Now add 20. Now add another 1 000.
Now add 10. What is the total?
Slow as a snail again. ...
Did you get 5 000?
The correct answer is actually 4 100.
Don't believe it? Check with your calculator!
Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question right?
Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini,4. Nono.
What is the name of the fifth daughter?
Nunu? No, of course not. Her name is Mary. Read the question again, idiot!
