Kitchen utensils

- So, Mr. Marley, what do you think qualifies you for this position?
- Well, I have spoons.
- Excuse me?
- Spoons.
- Yes, I heard what you said, but I don't see how this is relevant at all.
- Let me explain this to you in simple terms. Announcing the possession of spoons (or cutlery in general) implies in the very least a thorough understanding of the concept of ownership in contemporary society. Not a simple thing; see, I would have had to realise the important role that spoons play in our daily life, and planned a journey to a store, where I would have purchased such items, again, implying even more things: understanding of the complexities of social interaction with someone outside of my usual acquaintances to complete a transaction. One can also infer from this fact that I have garnered the ability to use such recently acquired spoons whenever an occasion that would require them should arise. So, in short, yes, I am fully qualified for this job.
- Are you being serious?
- Why, I am, of course. Anyway, it's potato peeling, it's not rocket science!
- Well, it actually is rocket science.
- Oh good then. Where do I sign?
- You went through the whole application process without knowing what job you were applying for?
- So it seems.
