So you think you’re intelligent, eh, you cocky SOB!? Well, don’t get ahead of yourself! If you’re really dead smart, take our IQ test to find out if you’re a Nobel Prize winner in waiting, or a Knob Prize weiner in weighting. Take the bloody test!
1. What is 77 + 3?
C: Can you please repeat the question?
D: English literature isn’t my strong suit. I’ll pass on this one.
2. Explain the principle tenet of Schrödinger’s cat – a thought experiment.
A: Um… no thanks, I’d rather not.
B: It’s what happens when a cat tries to think, but can’t because it’s a cat. So everyone dies horribly.

D: I would provide an answer, but I fear it would be mansplaining. So for the sake of womankind, I shall have to pass.
3. Brian sets off for work at 8am and walks at 2mph for 30 minutes. If he repeats this task for five years straight, whilst not missing a day of work (except for two days due to an unpleasant bout of plague bacillus), how long will it take until he’s fired for gross misconduct?
A: Uh… 36 hours?
B: Well, it depends on how gross he is. If he’s walking that much daily, he shouldn’t be too grotesque. So, I’d say about 35 years.
C: The question doesn’t quantify the substantive delineation required for Brian to circumnavigate the… er… malignantness of his… poopy pants. Sorry, I meant kurtosis within the frames of post-Freudian dialects. Ignore the poopy pants bit. You’re gonna mark me down for that, aren’t you?
D: Who is this Brian and why does he walk to work? Take the bus!

6. Describe how a helicopter works.
A: What’s a helicopter?
B: Well, you turn the engine on and then it takes off.
D: Them blades on the top whizz around dead quick creating a suction type deal, at which point the pilot uses a joystick to alleviate from the ground and, like, fly to Bermuda or something. That’s if he don’t crash on the way, though.
6. Quote a famous Shakespeare line.
A: Ummm… “If it bleeds, we can kill it.”
B: “We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard!”
C: “What’s better than Ted Danson? Ted singin’ and Danson!”
