Bill Gates' New Chair in Europe


Bill Gates organized an enormous session to recruit
a new Chairman for Microsoft Europe.

5000 candidates assembled in a large room.
One candidate was MARIO DIMAYUGA.

Bill Gates: "Thank you for coming. Those who do not
know JAVA may leave."

2,000 people left the room.

MARIO said to himself, "I do not know JAVA but I
have nothing to lose if I stay. I'll give it a try."

Bill Gates: "Candidates who never had experience of
managing more than 100 people may leave."

2000 people left the room.

Mario said to himself, "I never managed anybody but
myself but I have nothing to lose if I stay. What can
happen to me?" So he stayed.

Bill Gates: "Candidates who do not have management
diplomas may leave."

500 people left the room.

Mario said to himself, "I left school at 15 but what have
I got to lose?" So he stayed in the room.

Lastly, Bill Gates asked the candidates who do not speak
Serbo- Croat to leave.

498 people left the room.

Mario says to himself, "I do not speak one word of Serbo-Croat
but what do I have to lose?"

So he stayed and found himself with one other candidate.
Everyone else had gone.

Bill Gates joined them and said "Apparently you two are
the only candidates who speak Serbo-Croat, so I'd now like
to hear you converse in that language."

Calmly, Mario turned to the other candidate and said,
"Kumusta ka, pare ko."


The other candidate answered, "Mabuti naman, ikaw?"

Was there a joke somewhere in there?

Certainly, but you have to speak Tagalog to get the joke.

You are welcome here, and so is everybody else. But it's a section mainly for Filipino Glockers, just as there are specific sections in the BOG for Glockers in other geographical areas.

Hi StogieStang, here's the translation:


Bill Gates joined them and said "Apparently you two are
the only candidates who speak Serbo-Croat, so I'd now like
to hear you converse in that language."

Calmly, Mario turned to the other candidate and said,
(in Tagalog) "Kumusta ka, pare ko." (How are you, compadre?)

The other candidate answered,
(in Tagalog) "Mabuti naman, ikaw?" (Pretty good, and you?)

See, ante?
You could have aimed for a broader audience.
Funny as heck...
;) :supergrin:

horge, the rules here do not require translating everything. Many posts are in Tagalog without translation. If the rules required that, I would.

Good Lord, ante, lighten up. :)

All I said was "You could have aimed for a broader audience"
I also said the whole joke was funny as heck, which ought to explain
why I was left wishing that more folks could've gotten a laugh out of it.

I also think I just might have a fair handle on the rules.


Cheers,
:)
