Food Shortage Question- a fwd

Recently, a survey was conducted by the U.N. worldwide. The question asked was:
"would you please give your opinion about the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

The survey was a huge failure because:

In Africa, they didn't know what "food" means.

In Western Europe, they didn't know what "shortage" means.

In the Middle East, they didn't know what "opinion" means.

In South America, they didn't know what "please" means.

In the U.S.A, they didn't know what "the rest of the world" means.
