Um... so do I get the job?

Okay, so by now probably everyone in the world has seen this story, but it's still brilliant. The BBC accidentally interviewed a Congolese job applicant live on-air, thinking he was an IT expert.

Business presenter Karen Bowerman, who was to interview the expert, managed to get a message to the editor that the guest "seems not to know too much about the subject". Mr Goma was eventually asked three questions live on air, assuming this was an interview situation.
