Funny Interview Questions!

If you've ever had a job, and needed to interview to get that job, you're probably aware that you have to be prepared for ANYTHING (I was asked to hula hoop in front of the interviewer at an interview once).  Glassdoor has started to put together a list of crazy interview questions each year, and 2014 just came out.  You can check them out below and see their website for this and a list from last year!

What is the strangest or most difficult thing YOU have been asked at an interview?  

The most difficult for me (on the spot) was to choose the top 5 words friends would use to describe me.  I still think about that question to this day and always change my answers.  Haven't found my own perfect response yet!
