What is the fastest thing in the world?

4 men - a Californian, Texan, Bostonian and New Yorker were being interviewed for a top job. With nothing to choose between them, the company President told them over dinner that the decisive test would be carried out the following morning, with each candidate being asked the same question, with the person giving the best answer getting the job.

The next morning, first up was the Californian. "Here's your question," said the President, "What's the fastest thing in the world?"

Without hesitation, he replied "A thought, because it takes no time at all."

"Very good answer," said the President.

Next up was the Texan, "What's the fastest thing in the world?" asked the president. "A blink," replied the Texan almost instantaneously, "cos you don't think about a blink. It's a reflex."

"Good answer," replied the president.

Next was the Bostonian, "What's the fastest thing in the world?" asked the president. The Bostonian thought for a moment, "Electricity, because you can flip a switch and 20 miles away a light will go on immediately."

"That's a great answer," replied the president.

Finally, it was the New Yorkers turn. "What's the fastest thing in the world?" asked the president.

Scratching his head, the New Yorker replied: "Diarrhoea, because last night after dinner I was lying on my bed when I got these awful stomach pains and before I could think, blink or turn on the light....."

But why hire the person with the most sensitive stomach? Think of all the productivity that will be lost over the years as he sits on the throne, scratching his head and revisiting his last meal.

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.
