Funny… and Sadly, Mostly True

with 3 comments

A worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was: “Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?”

The survey was a huge failure.

In Africa, they didn’t know what “food” meant.
In Eastern Europe they didn’t know what “honest” meant.
In Western Europe they didn’t know what “shortage” 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.
And in the US, they didn’t know what “the rest of the world” meant.

  2. Considering how much of our annual budget goes to support other countries, I don’t know about this. But then again, there is that whole “Miss Teen USA” speech thing recently…
