There is part of this book that is not politically correct for this time. We will not be discussing this part of the book nor asking any questions about it. It comprises about three pages of the book.  At the time it was copyrighted, in 1972, jokes like this were fair game. In
the past few decades, however, people have analyzed pop culture very closely and find this to be insensitive and poking fun at others expense.
"Dahl pokes a bit of fun at Russian and Chinese names and accents in a way that would make readers cringe. The Soviet Premier is named Yugetoff. The President threatens him “I'm afraid we're going to have to show you just where you get off, Yugetoff!". The Premier says that the people in the elevator are not Russians, but possibly Chinese. So, the President calls the Head of the Chinese Republic. He is misconnected with a few men named Wing and Wong before finally getting the leader of China, who answers “Gleetings, honorable Mr. Plesident. Here is Assistant-Plemier Chu-On-Dat speaking. How can I do for you?" This book was written decades before political correctness, and it shows."
