It's a mad, mad, world...

Conversation between teacher-mother and her student-son:

Son: Mom, did you know India has the most starvation in the world? But they also have the most cattle. Because they think cows are sacred....It's like Africa where so many people die because of malaria but they love the birds too much to kill the mosquitos.
Mother: Hmm, yeah. Except it's not the Africans that love the birds, it's the Americans.
Son: What? You mean the Africans would?
Mother: Probably.
Son: How could we have so much influence?
Mother: Cause we're the most powerful country in the world, and the richest.
Son: The richest?! I thought we were in debt for like a hundred kazillion dollars!!
Mother: Yeah, well there is that.
