David Letterman’s Top Ten reasons why there could not be a Filipino-American US President

10. White House is not big enough for the in-laws and extended relatives.

9. Not enough parking spaces at White House for 2 Honda Civics, 2 Tacomas, Toyota Celica, 1985 Mercedes Benz Diesel, BMW (big mean wife) and MPV (My Pinoy Van).

8. Dignitaries generally are intimidated by eating with fingers at State dinners.

7. Too many dining rooms in the White House…..where to hang the Last Supper?

6. White House ceilings not high enough to hold the giant wooden spoon and fork.

5. Secret Service Staff won’t respond to “psssst, psssst”.

4. Secret Service Staff uncomfortable driving presidential car with Rosary hanging on the rear view mirror or the statue of Santo Nino on the dashboard.

3. No budget allocation to purchase karaoke machines for every White House room.

2. State Dinners do not allow “Take Home”.


1. AIR FORCE ONE does not allow overweightbalikbayan boxes!

I'm not so sure if it is really David Letterman who wrote this but anyway it's a joke so don't get offended. Filipinos have a lot of endearing qualities but hey let's admit it some of our qualities are not so endearing...
