This one is truly global...

Got this from a forwarded email: (Warning - It's somewhat racist)

This one is truly global...

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, 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!

Thoughts?

My opinion: Funny, yet sad at the same time. Observe how all the terms used here are actually critiques on each nation's attitude/behavior/mentality/morality except for 'food' for Africa. If I were to pick, I'd much rather be criticized on the absence of material than to receive critiques against my conduct. Perhaps we should all spend a few minutes to think and reflect. :)
