Pinoy Applicant at Wal-Mart

I just feel dark and somber these days that both posting and praying are lousily less of a priority. A couple of forwarded jokes from Miel had somehow lightened my corner. Let me share one:

Author of this story is unknown.
An office manager was given the task to hire someone to fill a job opening — a greeter. He decided to interview four people: an American, a Russian, an Australian, and a Filipino, named Eleuterio.

He called the four in and asks them only one question. Their answer would decide who gets the job.
As the four sat around the conference table, the interviewer asked,
“What is the fastest thing you know?”

The American, replied, β€œA THOUGHT. It just pops into your head. There’s no warning that it’s on the way; it’s just there. A THOUGHT is the fastest thing I know.”

“That’s very good!” said the interviewer.

“And now you sir?” he asked the Russian.

“Hmm…. let me see. A Blink! It comes and goes and you don’t know that it ever happened. A BLINK is the fastest thing I know.”

“Excellent!” said the interviewer. “The blink of an eye, that’s a very popular clichΓ© for speed.”

He then turned to the Australian who was contemplating his reply.

“Well, out at my dad’s ranch, on the wall there’s a light switch. When you flip that switch, way out
across the pasture, the light in the barn comes on.
Yep, TURNING ON A LIGHT is the fastest thing I can think of.”

The interviewer was very impressed with the third answer and thought he had found his man. “It’s hard to beat the speed of light” he thought.

Turning to Eleuterio, the fourth and final man, the interviewer posed the same question.

The Pinoy replied, “Apter hering da 3 preybyus ansers, sir, et’s obyus to me dat the pastest thing is Diarrhea.”

“WHAT!?” said the interviewer, stunned by the response. The others were already giggling on their seats…

“Oh, I can expleyn, sir,” said Eleuterio. “You see, sir, da ader day my tummy was peeling bad and so I run so fast to the CR, but before I could THINK, BLINK, or TURN ON DA LIGHT, sir, I had alreydi sh*t in my pants!”

Eleuterio is now the new “Greeter” at Wal-Mart.
