Default The Banana Test

There is a very, very tall coconut tree and there are 4 animals, a lion, a chimpanzee, a giraffe, and a squirrel, who pass by. They decide to compete to see who is the fastest to get a banana off the tree. Who do you guess will win?
Your answer will reflect your personality, so think carefully. Try and answer within 30 seconds.
Got your answer?


















Chimpanzee: you're not very bright.
Lion: you're quite dull.
Giraffe: you're very slow.
Squirrel: you're just hopelessly stupid.
A COCONUT TREE DOESN'T HAVE BANANAS.

So technically... they're all equally the fastest at getting a banana from the tree!

... Yeah, I fell for it. Picked Giraffe.

Obviously, the banana tree will win- You said "The Tree" not being specific about which tree! The banana tree close by has already gotten the banana- It beats everyone else!

And for the record, I didnt fall for it!

I entirely skipped the "coconut tree" part initially because I was distracted by the word "squirrel". ._.

I was referencing this:

Quote:
Subject: FW: How NOT to be a millionaire
Quote:

NEW YORK – Idaho resident Kathy Evans brought humiliation to her friends and family Tuesday when she set a new standard for stupidity with her appearance on the popular TV show, "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire."

It seems that Evans, a 32-year-old wife and mother of two, got stuck on the first question, and proceeded to make what fans of the show are dubbing "the absolute worst use of lifelines ever."

After being introduced to the show's host Meredith Vieira, Evans assured her that she was ready to play, whereupon she was posed with an extremely easy $100 question. The question was:

"Which of the following is the largest?"
A) A Peanut
B) An Elephant
C) The Moon
D) Hey, who you calling large?

Immediately Mrs. Evans was struck with an all consuming panic as she realized that this was a question to which she did not readily know the answer.

"Hmm, oh boy, that's a toughie," said Evans, as Vieira did her level best to hide her disbelief and disgust. "I mean, I'm sure I've heard of some of these things before, but I have no idea how large they would be."

Evans made the decision to use the first of her three lifelines, the 50/50. Answers A and D were removed, leaving her to decide which was bigger, an elephant or the moon. However, faced with an incredibly easy question, Evans still remained unsure.

"Oh! It removed the two I was leaning towards!" exclaimed Evans. "Darn. I think I better phone a friend."

Using the second of her two lifelines on the first question, Mrs. Evans asked to be connected with her friend Betsy, who is an office assistant.

"Hi Betsy! How are you? This is Kathy! I'm on TV!" said Evans, wasting the first seven seconds of her call. "Ok, I got an important question. Which of the following is the largest? B, an elephant, or C, the moon. 15 seconds hun."

Betsy quickly replied that the answer was C, the moon. Evans proceeded to argue with her friend for the remaining ten seconds.

"Come on Betsy, are you sure?" said Evans. "How sure are you? Puh, that can't be it."

To everyone's astonishment, the moronic Evans declined to take her friend's advice and pick 'The Moon.'

"I just don't know if I can trust Betsy. She's not all that bright. So I think I'd like to ask the audience," said Evans.

Asked to vote on the correct answer, the audience returned 98% in favor of answer C, 'The Moon.' Having used up all her lifelines, Evans then made the dumbest choice of her life.

"Wow, seems like everybody is against what I'm thinking," said the too-stupid-to-live Evans. "But you know, sometimes you just got to go with your gut. So, let's see. For which is larger, an elephant or the moon, I'm going to have to go with B, an elephant. Final answer." Evans sat before the dumbfounded audience, the only one waiting with bated breath, and was told that she was wrong, and that the answer was in fact, C, 'The Moon.'

Of course, like any good story, it's not true. And we all know where you go to learn what's not true... http://www.snopes.com/radiotv/gameshows/millionaire.asp !

This is clearly not right. Animals shouldn't be competing for coconuts, because animals don't do that. Unless they were psychopathic, of course. And of course, that would be against animal rights. So, if you think about it carefully, BlastOButter is trying to get us all to murder animals.

It's a conspiracy!

Plus, I saw a millonaire episode where it was 100% for an answer.

Plus, the text doesn't match.

Dang, I fell for it.

I feel like arguing that there must be some way the squirrel would win, but I admit the sneaky logic of the question has defeated me.

I thought that story about the woman probably to be voted least likely to become a millionaire was quite sad. It reminded me of many of the people I am forced to work with in this life.
