I came across this gem on Twitter. The image below is a snapshot of an interview Harvard Business Review conducted with Jerry Seinfeld in 2017. Two question in and the interviewer brings up the consulting firm McKinsey, well because it’s Harvard. Anyway I though the following exchange was very funny.
There’s a lesson here. The quality of the answers is positively correlated to the quality of the questions. Ask dumb question, get a dumb answer (or a funny in this case).
