A Short International Survey
 
Last month, a worldwide 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 the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.
 
And in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Great Britain everyone hung up as soon as they heard the Indian accent .
