UN phone survey
« on: September 02, 2013, 02:39:10 PM »
Last month, a world-wide telephone survey was
conducted by the UN. The only question asked was:-

"Would you please give your honest opinion about possible solutions
to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

The survey was a complete failure because:

In Eastern Europe they didn't know what
"honest" meant.

In Western Europe they didn't know what
"shortage" meant.

In Africa they didn't know what
"food" meant.

In China
they didn't know what "opinion" meant.

In the Middle East they didn't know what
"solution" meant.

In South America they didn't know what
"please" meant.

In the USA
they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.

And in Britain
everyone hung up as soon as they heard the Indian accent.
