Ice Breaker

Received this on my email from one of my friends. As I always say, this is just for laughs, no offense meant whatsoever. When I first read it, it made me laugh so hard coz I haven't read Pinoy jokes for quite a while. Keep reading and you will see how smart pinoys are! :)


Three contractors are bidding to fix the White House fence. One fromthe Philippines , another from Mexico and an American.

They go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The American contractor takes out a tape measure and does somemeasuring, then works some figures with a pencil.

"Well," he says. "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 formaterials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Mexican contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says,"I can do $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Filipino contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to theWhite House official and whispers: "$2,700." The official, incredulous,says, ! " What? You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did youcome up with such a high figure?" How do you expect me to consider yourservice with that bid?

"Easy," the Pinoy explains, "$1,000 for you, $1,000 for me and we hire the guy from Mexico ".

The next day, the Pinoy and the Mexican are working on the Fence.

Q. What's the differance between corruption in the US and corruption in the Philippines ?

A. In the U.S. they go to jail.. In the Philippines, they go to the U.S.

Now tell me, aren't we all smarty pants? ;) Take care all and thanks very much for reading!
