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!

Merger of the words Filipino & Jalapeño.

Generally used to describe a particularly attractive person from the Philippines.

Can also be used to describe a Filipino with a particularly short temper.
1.) Check out the Girl in the Yoga Pants. What a Filipiño!

2.) This Filipiño came at me with a Machete; apparently I was driving too slow.

Contrary to American belief, Filipino people are actually very much like the other SE Asian countries. They have strong family values and suffer from political corruption and Muslims. However, Filipinos on UrbanDictionary are clearly susceptible to raging for some reason. Anyway, here are some reasons other countries have us figured wrong:

*When, persay, a Filipino student arrives in the U.S, he/she is immediately under the pressure of American society at school to be what they keep saying. Some Filipinos will go along with it and become "ghetto Asians." Others will fight it. Still, others may try to stay under the radar so they don't need to hear any more ignorance.

*They believe that just because we were an export colony of Spain, that were all a bunch of Mexicans. While it is true that about 2% are part Spanish, that leaves the rest to be Pacific Islander and Asian. Even so, it's not your race that determines your personality.

*Since America is the dominant power, what rumors flow out of there are considered superior (to a diminishing extent, however).

*In other Asian countries, they are similarly racist towards Filipinos and face discrimination, thus, get worse jobs than if they were of different descent.

Filipinos are not just "another race". We are hardworking, honest, and proud to be alive and well. Our country may be small, but we still love and respect it. Who cares if we're short? Who cares if we're poor? We live everywhere in the world. We don't eat rice and work all day. We have vacation time! Some of us are ANNOYED and ANGERED by the stereotypes that Americans and other people make up about us. We try to be friendly and on good terms with people. But sometimes people just don't care...

In conclusion, a Filipino is an honest, kind, loyal, and friendly person. A Filipino is WHO I AM!!!
I AM A FILIPINO!!!!!!!!!!

Loosely, any person who is a citizen of or immigrant from the Philippines.

Filipinos are an intelligent hard working group of people who are better categorized as Pacific Islanders than Asians. Although the 7000+ islands comprising the filipines are closer to the area known as asia, the culture and people share little else with their asian neighbors.

Filipinos do not use chopsticks and the preferred method of eating is with the bare hands, Tagalog (as well as the 140 other languages native to the the area) are of polynesian origin and structure. Traditionally, dance, mythology and ritual tattoos were a part of the culture, in similar fashion to most other polynesian cultures.

During the Spanish invasion, the Spaniards continued their practice of killing anyone unwilling to convert to Catholocism (i.e the native American indians of Western America). A smart lot, most Filipinos converted rather than facing a painful death. However, much of the indigenous culture was sadly lost.

She doesn't really look asian - maybe she is Filipino.
