My perception of weird and your perception are going to be different, so will the interviewer's. Always consider the audience that you are speaking to and make sure to add some, not a lot, of levity!

This is most likely fake, if it was asked it probably was just to amuse the interviewer, not so much of a deciding factor.

This is to assess the candidate's perception, witt, and confidence, as well as ability to present a rational response to an "irrational" question.
My anwer would be: Weirdness is a subjective topic, based on a scale of (1-10) one would first have to determine what the reference point is. I live life through my own eyes and judge people and events through my own moral compass. Therefore i would be a "1" and measure everything else with me as the reference point.
There is no wrong or right answer, this is about confidence in presenting your argument.
I would have a different answer of course if the question was about things other than weirdness, such as talent, uniqueness, difference, etc..

my answer would be "1" because normalcy is relative.
