Last month 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 India they didn't know what 'honest' meant.
In 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 USA they didn't know what 'the rest of the world' meant.

Not to put a damper.....but this is a often forwarded email, and not a real UN study. I may be wrong..and would like to be shown a real link to this.

Of course as a piece of writing, it makes a lot of sense, and a portrayl of the truth in some ways.

remember reading this as a forward.. whether the survey is true or not, the fact listed down in most of the lines are true, especially the last one. LOL
