A worldwide 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...

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 in the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant...

I'm not sure I'd want to know what kind of solution a people known for their love of vegemite would come up with. [Wink]

Shroom, you obviously know a lot more about this part of the world than most.

Many iggirent furriners believe that New Zealand and Australia are different countries, but the Australian Constitution has this to say on the matter...

"The States" shall mean such of the colonies of New South Wales, New Zealand, Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria, Western Australia, and South Australia...

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

What a mess! Did you see how they misspelled tons!? There really is no hope for the Aussies at all.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.
