(This made me, Awi. C and Froilan G. laugh out loud.Sorry, this is poking fun at the Filipino’s unique sense of humor.Anyway, Awi got this from a loop of journalists.) 

A Filipino Applies for a Job at Wal-Mart.  

An office manager at Wal-Mart was given the task of  hiring an individual to fill a job opening. After sorting through a stack of resumes he found four  people who were equally qualified — an American, a  Russian, an Australian and a Filipino.He decided to call the four in and ask them only one question.   Their answer would determine who of them would get the job.  The day came and as the four sat around the  conference  room table the interviewer asked, “What is the fastest  thing you know?” Dave, the  American, replied, “A THOUGHT . It just pops into your  head. There’s no warning that it’s on the way; it’s  just there. A thought is the fastest thing I know of.”  “That’s very good!” replied the interviewer.  “And  now  you sir?” he asked Vladimir, the Russian.  “Hmm…. let me see. A blink! It comes and goes and you don’t know that it ever happened. A BLINK is the fastest thing I know.” “Excellent!” said the interviewer. “The blink of an eye, that’s a very popular cliche for speed.”

He  then  turned to George, the Australian who was contemplating his reply. “Well, out at my dad’s ranch, you step out of the house and on the wall there’s a light switch.  When you flip that switch, way out across the pasture  the light in the barn comes on. Yep, TURNING ON A  LIGHT is the fastest thing I can think of.” The  interviewer was very impressed with the third answer  and thought he had found his man. “It’s hard to beat the speed of light” he said.Turning to Eleuterio, the  Filipino, the fourth and final man, the interviewer  posed the same question. Eleuterio replied, “Apter  herring da 3 preybyus ansers sir, et’s obyus to me  dat  the fastest thing is Diarrhea.” “WHAT!?” said the interviewer, stunned by the response. The others were already giggling in their seats… “Oh, I can expleyn sir,.” said Eleuterio. ” You see, sir, da ader day my tummy was peeling bad and so I  run  so fast to the CR, but before I could THINK, BLINK,  or TURN ON THE LIGHT, ‘Tang I_a, sir, I had olreydi  shit  in my pants!” Eleuterio is now the new “Greeter” at Wal-Mart.
