Four men are walking down the street: a Saudi Arabian, a North Korean, a Russian, and a New Yorker. A reporter comes up to them and says, "Excuse me, could I ask your opinion about the meat shortage?"
The Saudi says, "Shortage? What's a shortage?"
The Russian says, "Meat? What's meat?"
The North Korean says, "Opinion? What's an opinion?"
The New Yorker says, " 'Excuse me'? What's 'excuse me'?"
