  1. brilliant stuff! really hard not to crack up laughing in my cubicle, just reading these.

    globalization/localization is probably my favourite -- because if you didn't know better, you might believe that it was the right answer. You can imagine the candidate walked away from the question thinking "Yes! I totally nailed that one!"
