Survey: solution to a problem (humor)
« on: August 13, 2009, 10:10:58 AM »
This was forwarded to me by a friend. Sorry, I do not know the source.

*************

        Last month a world-wide 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 because of the following:

        a)   in Eastern Europe they didn't  know what "honest" meant.

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

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

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

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

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

        g)  In the US they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.


        And Finally...........................

        h)  In Australia they hung up because they couldn't understand the Indian accent.
Love never fails.
