Wanna join in a survey?


Last month a world-wide survey was conducted by the UN.
The sole 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 because of the following:

In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant.

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

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

On Wall Street they didn't know what "give" meant.

In the rest of the US they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.

And finally...........................

In Australia they hung up because they couldn't understand the Indian accent.

NO it was because they rang us while we were trying to cook dinner!

Hi Peter ~~ I liked this one and also received it. I agree with
Karisma, they do call when we are
cooking or eating. And it is hard to understand some of them.
Take care, Cheers, Merle.

Hi Peter ~~ Where was the pic on your header taken? It's nice and so is the sidebar with the kids on.
Glad you liked my photos. Had the
best models? Take care, Love, Merle.
