Weird Things to Say in an Interview

I stumbled on this article on CNN.com.  It shares the 43 weirdest things said in an interview.  What does this have to do with employee loyalty and loyalty in the workplace?  I have no idea.  I just know it is a gray, rainy day here in Indy and these cheered me up so I hope the do the same for you.

Let me share a personal story of a dumb thing to say in an interview.  One of my best friends was interviewing for a job and was asked the traditional question, "Where do you see yourself in five years?".  His response was, "Hopefully laid up at home with a work-related injury"  Now, this was a quote from a popular morning radio show and my friend had hoped if he said this, it would break the ice a bit and loosen up the interview.  My friend said the interviewer clearly did not listen to the show because he did not crack a smile, just stared at him for a moment and then moved on to the next question.  He did not get the job. 

Do you have any funny interviewing stories?
