Toto is sitting at a job interview for an anti-terrorist unit, answering a job offer as a negotiator.
Interviewer: What is your experience in negotiation?
Toto: Oh, I have years of experience, negotiating with the toughest people on the market.
Interviewer: And what is your rate of success in these negotiations?
Toto: about 2%
Interviewer (quite puzzled): Why do you think such a low success rate would make you a qualified negotiator with terrorists?
Toto: I was negotiating with publishers!
Interviewer (extatic): Amazing! You’re hired!
