World Survey

Standard

Subject: World Survey by Phone

Last month a world-wide survey was conducted by the U.N. 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:

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 Africa they didn’t know what “please” meant.

7.. In the USA they didn’t know what “the rest of the world” meant.

8.. In Israel they preceded the question by “excuse me” but the Israelis didn’t know what “excuse me” meant.

9.. In Australia and NZ they hung up as soon as they heard an Indian accent!
