When you know you don't want the job, that's when you get a chance to play
with them a little. Say things designed to shock them and watch their faces.

How about...
"Do you have a problem with me wearing a bathing suit
to the office on hot days? I find that I work best if
I pretend that I'm at the beach."

"You do allow time for a siesta every afternoon, don't
you? I can't function very well if I have to work straight
through without my nap."

"You don't do a thorough background check do you?"

"How long can I wait before taking the drug screening test?"

What would be scary is if you messed with them and they still offered you
the job...

A side question: How does one go about ending an
interview politely? If you know you're under- or
overqualified or if the job description doesn't
represent the job or if you realize you just don't
want to work there.....
