Hilarious Joke About Telephone Food Shortage Survey

peterchristopher's picture


 Last month a world-wide telephone survey was conducted by the UN.

The only 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.
In the US they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.
And finally.......In England they hung up because they couldn't understand the researcher's Indian accent.

Your blog "Just for laugh" signifies the reality the world is facing & we can say its a sad part of humanity because we are the one who are creating all this difficulties & we are the one who are creating humor so that we people can relax & make our day healthy through such jokes.. I like the blog as its has both a statement on current situation with humor..

shut it

that joke is sweet... on second thought- you need to take yourself way less seriously. i bet there isa joke out there somewhere that you could not ruin with your ridiculous politically correct statement. go run for office somewhere and shut the piehole when it comes to the funny stuff

Hilarious joke

And on the "please" comment about South Americans. Anyone who has lived south of the border has seen how pushy some of my fellow Latinos can be. Heck! I'm Latina and it pisses me off at times.

So YES, that part of the joke makes a great deal of sense to many of us. I've been elbowed out of the way by some of the rudest men in Latin America as much as I've had some of the most polite men hold doors open from me. And sorry, but I have to say once again that it is usually the campesinos who lack manners. And I know the campesinos will hate me for this, and frankly I don't give a shit.

I'm of the fabric that even in Latin America we don't have to be poorly raised, just because we are poor sometimes. And what I've found is that some of the most liberal Americans and Canadians, who get disgusted over silly jokes like this, are some of the most racist assholes when it comes to dealing with our culture. They pompously presume they know our culture better than us, they try to tell us how we should think. Forgive me for not enjoying the politically correct nonsense of people who I've found usually demonstrate the worst racism and hostility as demonstrated on the Living Nica site, to mankind.

I don't get the whole 'South

I don't get the whole 'South Americans don't understand what "please" means' thing. May you please elucidate? Does it imply that they are a rude people? I get the other ones, just never heard of this particular stereotype.


thanks for the permission ;)

If we make a blog entry on how Peter and Milyn Christopher use virgin coconut oil, would that get some hits  


Irony, slapstick, demeaning jokes, stupid jokes, puns, riddles, political jokes, religious jokes, racial jokes, ageist, sexist, and sexual jokes, all will test one's personal sense of humor. Jokes are free speech. "Politically correct" is another word for hypersensitive homogenization of expression. Isn't it..

Why should we make jokes about Germans? They've hardly bothered us since 1918. Why make jokes about the Kennedy's? They are as dead as Nixon (he is he still dead, isn't he?). By the way, did Teddy ever get his license back? Or will a preschool ever be named after Michael Jackson? And weren't the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock the first wetbacks? Remember, If a politicians lips are moving..

Humor is everywhere. As I write this reponse to the respondererer, I note an article to the right entitled "How to Make Virgin Coconut Oil With Milyn and Peter Christopher. Now you know that's not going to work. You have to use coconuts, and people would probably miss Milyn and Pete sooner or later. Or are they talking about whispering sweet nothings in the coconut's ear? Or telling it you're a Movie Producter?

The only true power you have in this world is humor. They can take away your freedoms, they can tell you to respect their authority, but they are defensless in the face of laughter. If you don't make jokes about the politically correct, THEY will control the world.


not politically correct?

Well, correct or not it was funny and I think we need more laughter in the world.

We can be sad for all the poverty, injutice and corruption but how much action on these things do most people take? Not much I fear to say. Most people talk a lot. Me, I do what I can to try to make the world a better place, in my daily life. I would like to be able to feed the hungry. Right now I am struggling to figure out how I am going to feed myself for the next few years.

I try to keep a light heart and laugh. I think it adds good energy to the world.



on second thought

This might be a hilarious joke, but it's also a sad statement.  Especially the part about Africa.  Just because the ancestors of the present-day Africans were largely responsible for mismanagement of Africa's natural resources (perhaps unintentionally), doesn't make a joke about the present Africans politically correct, does it.
