    Last month, a world-wide survey was conducted by the U.N.
    The only question asked was:

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

    The survey was a massive failure because of the following:


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

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

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

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

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

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

    7. In the U.S.A. they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.

    and

    8. In Australia and New Zealand... they hung up as soon as they heard the Pakistani accent.
