“Where do you see yourself in five years?”/“Probably in a mirror.”

“Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?” is a common job interview question. The interviewer wants to know about the job applicant’s general career plans.
 
“Where do I see myself? Uh, probably in the mirror!” is the joke answer. The joke has been cited in print since at least 2000.
