Time for some funny stuff

I read this from Jesi’s multiply (Ministry of Mindful Thoughts). It’s so funny and shows how Pinoys are full of sense of humor and creativity. I could not understand a couple of them though (I need time to process or digest them first ha ha ha). Do you think only Pinoys can understand this? I will let Key read this and see if he can get it. Maybe I will also let my colleagues from other countries read this and see what their opinions are.

  3. […] Sense of humor is important on a day to day basis. It’s been said of the Pinoys that we are pretty ingenuous when it comes to making light of things, not because we are escapists, but maybe because we are a “happy” people … as ordinary people we don’t resort to guns to solve our problems. We tend to see the lighter side of things. One display of a Pinoy’s sense of humor is in the play of words. Common words and familiar trademarks and expressions are re-invented to make it truly Pinoy sounding. Read more about this in the blog I wrote entitled, Time for some funny stuff … […]
