From another article I read, years ago:


Don't worry, I can still hear you over the headphones.


The interviewee was listening to a Sony Walkman (yes, I'm dating myself) during the interview.

I wonder where that would rank.

Um, that almost looked like it was serious advice and not a joke. Did I not see the disclaimer or does the author actually think those are good answers?
