I just had a brief conversation with my girlfriend so priceless, so classically Filipino, I just had to post it in the hope it might bring a little levity to an otherwise depressing litany of woeful tales.
We were watching an animated movie where they showed a motel in a tiny one-horse desert town in the U.S. My dumber half commented, “Why is there a motel in the middle of the desert? Who’s going to go there to fuck?”
After I finished rolling on the floor in laughter, I explained to Miss Bewildered the purpose of motels. “In other countries, motels are primarily places for travelers to stay the night.”
“Oh, I didn’t realize motels had other purposes… here, everybody knows a motel is just a place to go to fuck.”
More laughter, till I cried. “Babe, that’s because all you Filipinos do is fuck–and make babies!”Published in
