I don’t believe in Wonderlic tests, IQ tests or any type of standardize test that tries to tell you how smart you are.
You can’t measure true intelligence in my opinion.
I think people in general have things they are experts in.
I am an expert in sports and Nohology, but ask my anything about science or physics and I will be as confused as Jamarcus Russell looking at a salad.
With that being said everyone should know basic math, unless you are a girlfriend of Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo.
Candice Crawford (a former Miss Missouri who is making my state look very bad right now) was on the radio talking about her relationship with Romo, here are some of the things she had to say:
On how she and Tony Romo met:
“I met him two years ago when I was an intern with the Cowboys. I was doing their off-season show The Blitz. And I had worked there over the summer so we had met then. I was underage. Then, two years later, he broke up with his girlfriend. I broke up with my boyfriend. And I got back to Dallas to do Special Edition. The Cowboys broadcasting department who I am really close with were like, ‘Hey buddy, we hired your intern friend again.’ We ended up going out and have been going to dinner every since.”
On what kind of boyfriend Romo is:
“I would say we are pretty balanced because I hate being like the plan maker. I feel like I’m on the phone all day. He’s pretty efficient and Type A in a different degree. He’s really good at making the plans and having things scheduled and done. I’m more like the domestic Type A things like, ‘You know you need to iron your shirt. Let me iron that for you.’ … I wouldn’t say he’s a neat freak, but he’s not like a slob. He has good hygiene.”
When asked, “What is 23 minus 17?”
Lets stop the interview right there.
23 minus 17 is not a difficult mathematical equation. So I did a test, I went to my 6 year daughter and simply asked her:
“Sweetie take your time, but what is 23 – 17?”
After looking annoyed that I stopped her from watching Dora she quickly scribble something on a piece of paper and replied:
“6 daddy..I am 6 years old too.. daddy do I get a toy?”
I will discuss how I have spoiled her at a later date, but if a six year old can get it right why can’t a former Cowboys intern?
What is up with everyone sleeping with interns lately? Has Bill Clinton been touring training camps?
*wait the BSO Blackberry is buzzing*
My bad I was just informed what did I expect from a guy who dated Jessica Simpson.
