“When the interviewer asked me to, ‘Describe myself in three words,’ I replied, ‘Efficient‘“

"If I had to describe myself in three words they would be: Efficient” was posted on Twitter on July 6, 2013. “Interviewer: Describe yourself in three words. Interviewee: Efficient” was posted on Twitter on January 21, 2014. “When the interviewer asked me to, ‘Describe myself in three words,’ I replied, ‘Efficient’” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on April 6, 2018.

The joke is that the job applicant is so efficient that he or she doesn’t need two more words.
