What was the dumbest or most impossible interview question that you have ever been asked?

I was once asked an impossible question during an interview at a hotel: "What would you do if a guest needed a particular shampoo and we didn't supply it, the stores were all closed, and there was no one else here to assist you in obtaining this shampoo?" I kept shooting answers and he would ask, "Well, what if that isn't an option?" to the point that I eventually had no answer! Needless to say, I didn't get the job. LOL.
