    A bank manager was interviewing four very different applicants from his short list for a clerical position. He devised a simple test to select the most suitable person for the job. He asked each applicant the question, 'What is two and two?'

    The first interviewee was a journalist. His answer was 'Twenty-two.'

    The second applicant was an engineer. He pulled out a slide rule and showed the answer to be between 3.999 and 4.001.

    The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case of Jenkins vs. Cromwell two and two was proven to be four.

    The last applicant was an accountant. When the bank manager asked him, 'How much is two and two?' The accountant got up from his chair, went over and closed the door. He came back, sat down, leaned across the desk and said in a low voice, 'How much do you want it to be?'

    He got the job.
