The UN conducted a worldwide questionnaire.

The question was:

"Please give us your honest opinion on how to resolve the shortage of foodstuffs in the rest of the world."

This question turned out unsuccessful and evidently difficult to understand:

In Africa, nobody knew what foodstuffs were.
In Eastern Europe, the meaning of honesty was a mystery to many.
In Western Europe, people didn't understand what shortage meant.
In China people didn't know what an opinion is.
In the Middle East, the idea of resolving something was totally unknown.
In Latin America, people didn't know the meaning of 'please'.
In the United States, the concept of 'the rest of the world' was incomprehensible.
