Why A Filipino-American CANNOT Be The U.S. President According To David Letterman

I saw this list on Facebook, thanks to a friend who posted it. It is so funny that I just had to post it on here. If you're Filipino, you'll definitely see the humor in this list. If you don't, then maybe you ought to lighten up a little! ;)

10. The White House is not big enough for in-laws and extended relatives.
Yep - certainly not for MY clan!

9. There are not enough parking spaces at the White House for 2 Honda Civics, 2 Toyota Land Cruisers, 3 Toyota Corollas, a Mercedes Benz, a BMW , and an MPV (My Pinoy Van).

8. Dignitaries generally are intimidated by eating with their fingers at State dinners.
Believe it or not, my mom still does this most of the time. Come to think of it, when I eat fish at home (the whole thing, not fillets), I like using my fingers!

7. There are too many dining rooms in the White House – where will they put the picture of the Last Supper?

6. The White House walls are not big enough to hold a pair of giant wooden spoon and fork.
Now these things we used to have. I don't know if my parents still have them, though.

5. Secret Service staff won’t respond to :psst… psst” or “hoy…hoy…hoy”
Or, as Jerry said, they wouldn't know how to interpret "mouth pointing gestures."

4. Secret Service staff will not be comfortable driving the presidential car with a Holy Rosary hanging on the rear view mirror, or the statue of the Santo Nino on the dashboard.

3. No budget allocation to purchase a Karaoke music-machine for every room in the White House.
This one's a classic!

2. State dinners do not allow ‘Take Home’.
Go to any gathering and you will probably go home with a doggie bag. That's how we roll!

AND THE NUMBER 1 REASON WHY THERE COULDN’T BE A FILIPINO-AMERICAN U.S. PRESIDENT IS……

1. Air Force One does not allow overweight Balikbayan Boxes.
And why not, may I ask??? I sure would take a couple of them if I had access to Air Force One!;)

I guess our kid's (if we ever have one) gonna have a tough time...
