What is Your Favorite Interview Question?

My favorite question, used for sales representative jobs, is actually an exercise:

"Sell me this pencil."

It gives you a chance to see the candidate's presentation skills, sense of humor, ability to think under pressure, and the way he or she closes a sales pitch.

I strive to fashion its equivalent for other positions. Let me know if you have any favorites.
