The Pinoy's Fascination With Eggs

Pinoys love eggs. We eat it in so many ways, at different times of the day. For breakfast, there's tuyo (fried fish) with egg. For lunch, we eat it with arroz a la cubana. For dinner, when the cook is not feeling that creative, we eat egg with tapa.

Pinoys also associate eggs with jokes. Just sprinkle the word itlog (Tagalog for egg) in your conversation, and watch how the other Filipinos react. That reminds me of this incident many years ago during the noontime show "Student Canteen."

Eddie Ilarde (EI) was trying to help out a contestant (C) --

EI : Misis, ano ang NaCl o sodium chloride? (Mrs, what is sodium chloride?)

C : Ah... ah...

EI : Nakikita ninyo ito sa bahay... (You'll find this around the house...)

C : Ahm... ah...

EI (getting desperate) : Ano ang nilalagay ninyo sa itlog ng mister ninyo tuwing umaga??
(What do you put in your husband's egg in the morning?)

C (brightening) : Ah! Pulbos! (Ah! Powder!)

EI (flabbergasted) : Ah... ah... commercial muna tayo. (Let's pause for a commercial break)

[For those who slept through chemistry, NaCl is salt.]

See Batjay's SIR, ANONG GUSTO NYO SA ITLOG NYO? NILAGA? PRINITO? O MAY PULBOS?
