Outside the UN in New York City, a pollster was attempting to take a survey on a local topic.
Four men walked by: a Saudi, an Ethiopian, a North Korean, and a resident New Yorker. The pollster cleared his throat and said to the men, “Excuse me, I would like to ask you your opinion on the current meat shortage.”
The Saudi replied, “What is a shortage?”
The Ethiopian asked, “What is meat?”
The North Korean queried, “What is an opinion?”
The New Yorker responded, “What is ‘Excuse me?'”
