Filipinos are certainly getting into mainstream America and into the world. With an estimated 4 million Filipino-American population (as of 2007), we are an emerging group in a diverse society that is the United States. Filipino talents like Manny Pacquiao, Charice Pempengco, Arnel Pineda, Lea Salonga, and Monique Lhuiller are doing a great job pitching in!

In the “supposed” recent David Letterman show, Mr. David Letterman himself, apparently used Filipino-Americans in one of his skits. Here’s the recap:

    hi pinoy!

    thank you for writing! we we’re afraid someone might fall for it, but this has been going around for a while and we didn’t think it was for real!

    thanks to you, we decided to put our own disclaimer! we thought everyone must have read about this by now on their emails but guess not… 🙂

    this is too “accurate” if we may say that only a Filipino can write it- unless of course, David Letterman has a Filipino writer in his team! hehe

    lol-that was too funny. I’m not much of a Lettermen fan but I enjoyed reading this list.

  • frank said:

    a total hoax – it wasnt even funny – no one would even get the MPV joke – even pinoys in manila dont know that one so how do you suppose the audience of over 300 million would get that? dont you think letterman would totally dump this material when he saw it? its too narrow in nature to be funny
