Nakinig ako sa radyo minsan.
(I listened to the radio one time)
Naku, alam mo na siguro iyung isang-katerbang walang puknat na ingay na AM station. (Oh, you probably know that non-stop noisy AM station)
Aba, kahapon lamang narinig ko ang idol kong si Karen na tawa ng tawa sa 'pag-mahirap, pag mayaman' na mga jokes na pinadala via text. (Just yesterday, I heard my idol Karen laughing about the "rich and poor" jokes sent via text)
Parang ganito yon. (This is how it goes)
Kapag mayaman Allergy. Kapag mahirap Galis.
(If you're rich it's Allergy, but if you're poor it's scabs)
Kapag mayaman Cough. Kapag mahirap Ubo.
(Cough and ubo means the same thing)
Kapag mayaman Credit Card. Kapag mahirap Utang! (Utang=Debts)
Kapag mayaman Shower. Kapag mahirap Tabo. (Tabo=Water scooper)
Hay, naku! Paulit-ulit na kabaliwan! (Oh, never-ending madness!) Eh wag ka. Hindi basta bastang tao ang nagpapadala ng text ha. Nariyan si Erap, si Tito Sen, si RickyLo, at marami pang iba! (And these are not ordinary people who sends text. There's President Estrada, Senator Tito Sotto, Ricky Lo, etc.)
Aba, nainis ako! (Hey, I got irritated!) Eh, hindi naman mayaman-mahirap ang mga jokes na iyan ah! (But these are not rich-poor jokes!) Kung susuriin mo, madalas puro english to pinoy lang naman ah! (If you listen closely they are mostly english to pilipino translations only!) Nanlait na naman ng pagka-Pilipino nila! Kapag english mayaman, at pag pinoy mahirap? (They looked down on their being a Pilipino again! It is like saying that english is rich and pilipino is poor?
Ang nakakatawa kung nagpapaka-sosyal eh hindi naman. Tulad nito: (The funny ones are those who pretend to be rich when they're not. Like this:)
Pag mayaman, Wine. Pag mahirap, Am. (If you're rich it's Wine. But if you're poor, it's rice wine)
Pag mayaman Hermes. Pag mahirap Henes. (Inis)
Pag mayaman Starbucks, pag mahirap Starbuko. (Buko=Coconut juice)
Pag mayaman Louis Vuitton, pag mahirap Lumang Biton! (Lumang biton=old shoeshine)
Pag mayaman Steaks, mag mahirap stick lang.
Hay naku, makatulog na nga! (Oh, I better go and take a nap!)
