Amazing race of people who mostly are confused whether they are Asian or Pacific Islander when they are really both. Some Filipinos especially Filipino Americans think they are black. But that's because they listen to too much Hip-Hop. not saying that listening to Hip-hop is bad for Filipinos but like San Miguel beer and other forms of alcohol it should be listened to with Pulutan.
Other Filipinos must speak Ilokano if they live in Hawaii and only in Hawaii must they speak Ilokano. In the mainland USA they can Speak in any Other Filipino language they wish. If

Civilian life is too hard for a Filipino they must join the Filipino

Mafia by enlisting in the US Navy, which is really the Filipino

Navy. To become a full fledge Member of the Filipino Mafia

you must be fluent in Tagalog. This is different than the

Ilokano Mafia,in which you must be fluent in Ilokano. To join the Pacquiao mafia I think U have to be fluent in Visayan as a pre-requisit. A true Visayan also has to own a Kris Sword, married Visaya couples will both be equal in skill with the Kris Sword. All younger generation Males are good at basketball or have repressed basketball skills that only shine through daily practice.
Last of all, Ilocanos are either Rich or extremely Kuripot.
Manny Pacquiao is the Greatest Boxer in the universe. Floyd Mayweather Jr. Is an arrogant bastaard, a Fat Filipino Martial Artist who eats fish, rice , and pork on a daily basis could whup his @$$!

Filipinos, or Flips as they are better known as, are a species of sub-human from the Philippine Islands in the South China Sea. The islands serve as the world's largest zoo boasting many varied species of flora and fauna along with the indigenous sub-humans called Flips.

They are famed worldwide for copying famous inventions, cuisine, cultural traits and ideas and re-branding them as their own. They are however, also infamous for not being able to copy them perfectly and all their products end up working worse than the originals. When this happens, the typical Flip will then resort to lying about it, outright cheating more gullible folk or just plain stealing when all else fails.

As the world's only zoo nation. They are much loved for the spectacle they afford everyone else. From old favourites like the 'world's largest outdoor swimming pool whenever it rains', to 'electing an old boxer with possible brain damage to be a president'.

They also have the great honour of being the test bed for every chemical weapon deployed in human history. Mustard gas? It's called Mustard gas because it was first deployed in Makati, Manila.

The 'M' in Mustard was taken from the 'M' in Manila. Though the gas deployed at that time was significantly weaker than what is used today, hence the surviving, yet mentally retarded populace.

And that my friends is the example of a Filipino.
Person A: Man! That's a nice pair of shoes you got on!
Person B: These aren't shoes, they're flip flops!
Person A: Flip flops?
Person B: Yeah, you know, the skin of a flip? They're resilient as hell! More than a century of lying and stealing while believing their lies makes a flip quite resistant to the elements!

Person A: Man! That's awesome! Where can I get me some flips to skin?

Person X: Dude, these crummy "Filipino Pride" headphones broke after a day of use!
Person Y: Well yeah, it's "Filipino Pride" for a reason, you buy them to support the zoo, but you're meant to steal headphones from the other tourists!

1. Filipino is a native of the Philippines.

2. They are always mixed up for being either an Asian or a Pacific Islander. Officially, Filipinos are categorized as Asians and the Philippines are part of South-east Asia.

3. Others would say that Filipinos are the Mexicans of Asia. (Kinda agree on that.)

4. They look Hispanic due to past history with Spain. The Philippines was "discovered" by Magellan in 1521, who declared them Spanish territory. However, Magellan was killed and Spain didn't invade again until 1565. They had control from 1571 until 1898, when it was transferred to the United States after the Spanish-American War.

5. Most Filipinos have olive skin. I guess, you could say "naturally tan". However, not all are. Others have darker skin tones. There are those who are half-Filipinos that are fairer either because they have Western blood or something in them that made their colour the way it is.

6. Most Filipinos are known for being hard-working. Nobody is perfect so yes, there are those that are still lazy but there are more that are hard-working.

7. Not all Filipinos tok like dis not all chenge der p to f or vice versa.

8. The Philippines was actually once a rich country until the government, well, became corrupt.

9. Jollibee.

10. It's more fun in the Philippines.
Filipinos are awesome and so are other races, OKAY.
