35. No, though I have been tempted.
Especially when the interviewer is clearly clueless and you know you know more than they do.

What I have learned over the years is you never know who knows who. So while it may give you temporary satisfaction to make a snarky comment to an interviewer, it could come back to bite you.

There isn't exactly an overabundance of jobs right now.

Why possibly make the problem worse by pissing off someone who might know your next interviewer or someone else who could affect your employment?

Nope, I wouldn't do it.
