Marketing Moments

I'm doing a marketing study tonight over the internet, and got this question:

"What percentage of your untreated epilepsy patients are untreated?"

That's like asking me to "Find the variable for the variable and solve for x." That was a question in my textbook.

Ed Adams said...

Just thinking about the stupidity of that question almost gives me a seizure.

Barb: You might want to get an editor yourself. Just saying.

I'd love to scoff at whoever missed that but sadly that looks like some of my papers written at 0600. Nonetheless, funny!

Could you answer by asking,"How many stupid marketing people that put together this survey are stupid?"

Answer: All of them are obviously stoopider than they should be.

And by definition of being a patient aren't they being treated?

Is this a trick question? Like, who's buried in Grant's tomb?

Hold on, I need to call my lifeline.
