T.G.I.F – What does it really mean?

Today is Friday and this Proverb comes to mind:

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” (NLT, Proverbs 17:22)

My dad asked me, “Junior, do you know what is T.G.I.F?”

“Thank God it’s Friday,” I replied. 

“No, it’s Thank God I’m Filipino,” he said and we all laughed.

(Thank you – Colin and Joy – for introducing me to HappySlip.com)

Christine Gambito (aka HappySlip) does an amazing comedy skit imitating Filipino family members in “Bunts of Junks”.

HappySlip celebrates Manny Pacquiao’s 2nd round KO of Ricky Hatton. When he fights there is virtually no crime in the Philippines as the whole nation watches The Pac-Man. (BTW, my uncle also looks like Manny!)
