I came across this on the net (http://www.laugh-of-the-day.com) and thought I'd put it up here. Please do share with me what your answer was. No, I don't have a job to offer for the best answer - sorry.

Here goes:

An office manager was given the task of hiring an individual to fill a job opening. After sorting through a stack of resumes he found four people who were equally qualified. He decided to call the four in and ask them only one question. Their answer would determine which of them would get the job. The day came and as the four sat around the conference room table the interviewer asked: "What is the fastest thing you know of?"

Acknowledging the first man on his right, the man replied, "A THOUGHT. It just pops into your head. There's no warning that it's on the way; it's just there. A thought is the fastest thing I know of."

"That's very good!" replied the interviewer. "And now you sir?" he asked the second man.

"Hmm....let me see. A blink! It comes and goes and you don't know that it ever happened. A BLINK is the fastest thing I know of."

"Excellent!" said the interviewer. "The blink of an eye ... that's a very popular clich or speed." He then turned to the third man who was contemplating his reply.

"Well, out at my dad's ranch, you step out of the house and on the wall there's a light switch. When you flip that switch, way out across the pasture the light in the barn comes on in less than an instant. TURNING ON A LIGHT is the fastest thing I can think of."

The interviewer was very impressed with the third answer and thought he had found his man. "It's hard to beat the speed of light" he said. Turning to the fourth and final man, the interviewer posed the same question.

"It's obvious to me that the fastest thing known is DIARRHEA."

"WHAT!?" said the interviewer, stunned by the response.

"Oh I can explain." said the fourth man. "You see the other day I wasn't feeling so good and I ran for the bathroom. But, before I could THINK, BLINK, or TURN ON THE LIGHT, I had already soiled my pants!"

HE GOT THE JOB................

Hi D, not too sure about the fastest thing...but I do know (this a friend's experience, I still laugh when think of it) about what is "fast"!
My friend was with a woman when heard her husband's car returning home. (Fortunately he played with their pet dog first before entering the house) He broke the Asean record for jumping over a high fence, got chased by neighbour's dog and broke the record for 100 yards dash, broke the speed limit....all in his shorts while carrying his clothes.
That was fast! Arhaa ha ha. UL.
ps, every year I send him a New Year card will add, "how's your running nowadays"? Ha ha.
