Last month a worldwide survey was conducted by the U.N. The only question asked of each nation member was: “Please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?”
Reportedly, the survey was a failure because of a language barrier.
In Africa they didn’t know what “food” meant. In Eastern Europe they didn’t know what “honest” meant. In Western 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, here in the good ol’ USA we didn’t seem to know what “the rest of the world” meant.
