Glumă... lingvistică

Una dintre preferatele mele :))

The U.N. conducted a worldwide survey with only one question: “Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?” The survey was a total failure. Africans didn’t know what “food” meant. Eastern Europeans didn’t know what “honest” meant. Western Europeans didn’t know what “shortage” meant. The Chinese didn’t know what “opinion” meant. Middle Easterners didn’t know what “solution” meant. South Americans didn’t know what “please” meant. And the Americans didn’t know what “the rest of the world” meant!

  1. As a joke it's funny until you realise that the UN shouldn't be asking questions about the "rest of the world" in a survey that's "worldwide".

    Then it gets funnier because you realise that the UN would probably do exactly that :D
