food shortages

I saw this on the wall in the University here:

***

A recent UN survey posed the question:

"Can you please give your opinion on food shortages in the rest of the world?"

But...

The Africans didn´t understand "food".
The Western Europeans didn´t understand "shortage".
The Eastern Europeans didn´t understand "opinion".
The South Americans didn´t understand "please".
The US didn´t understand "rest of the world".

I've taken the time to read through your blog since day 1. I'm not gonna go into the reasons why I ended up in your blog site (at least not yet) but I just HAD to comment on this one...
As a high school teacher in a rather rich country, I try to teach my students about the world around them, and coincidentally, this school year I began with precisely this same UN Survey report.
