ITO NGA BA ANG ALAMAT KUNG BAKIT NAGSISINUNGALING ANG MGA LALAKI?

 

Karpintero itong si Jojo at isang araw eh gumagawa siya ng isang bahay sa tabi ng ilog. Sa lakas ng pagma-martilyo niya eh nalaglag ang martilyo niya sa ilog. Umiyak siya at lumitaw yung guardian angel niya, ‘tutulungan kita, Jojo’… sabay lundag sa ilog ng anghel.

 

Lumabas ito na me hawak na gold hammer, ‘ito ba ang martilyo mo?’… ‘hindi po’…

 

Lundag uli ang anghel at lumitaw na me silver hammer, ‘ito ba?’… ‘hindi po’…

 

Lundag uli sa ilog ang anghel at lumitaw na me ordinary hammer, ‘ito ba?’… ‘Opo’…

 

Natuwa ang anghel. ‘Dahil honest ka, bukod sa martilyo mo, sa ‘yo na rin ang gold and silver hammer’.

 

Makaraan ang ilang araw, naglalakad si Jojo sa tabi ng ilog at kasama ang misis niya. Eh sa katangahan, nalaglag si misis sa ilog… iyak si Jojo.

 

Litaw si guardian angel, ‘tutulungan kita’… sabay lundag sa ilog at nang lumitaw eh kasama si Paris Hilton,

 

‘ito ba ang misis mo?’

 

Sagot si Jojo, ‘opo’

 

Nagalit si anghel, ‘sinungaling ka. Akala ko pa naman mabait ka’…

 

Nag- reason-out si Jojo, ‘sorry po, angel… kasi kapag sinabi kong ‘Hindi’ eh lulundag ka uli sa tubig at pag-litaw mo eh kasama mo si Jessica Simpson. At pag sinabi ko uli na hindi siya ang asawa ko eh lulundag ka uli at ang tunay na misis ko na ang kasama mo. At dahil sa kabaitan ko, eh ibibigay mo din sa akin sina Paris at Jessica. Mahirap lang po ako at hindi ko kaya ang me tatlong asawa, kaya ‘Yes’ na lang ang sinagot ko nung una.

 

 

Here is the rough English translation:

 

IS THIS REALLY THE LEGEND ON WHY MEN LIE?

 

Jojo is a carpenter. One day, he went out to build a house right beside the river. He was hitting the nail with his hammer too hard that he lost control and the hammer flew off of his hand. It went straight into the river. Jojo cried. Then his guardian angel came to him,

 

“I will help you Jojo.”

 

The angel jumped into the river. A few moments later the angel came out with a gold hammer in hand.

 

“Is this your hammer?”, asked the angel.

 

“No”, Jojo replied.

 

The angel went into the river again. This time, the angel was holding a silver hammer when she came out.

 

The angel asked Jojo for the second time, “Is this it?” And Jojo shook his head, no, once more.

 

On the third time the angel was now holding an ordinary hammer.

 

“Is this it?”

 

“Yes”, Jojo answered.

 

The angel was happy with Jojo’s honesty. She said,

 

“Jojo because you have been very honest I am giving you the gold and the silver hammer as well.”

 

After a few days, Jojo was walking along the river with his wife. His wife got too careless that she slipped into the river. Jojo cried. Yet again his guardian angel came to help him. The angel went into the river and came out with Paris Hilton.

 

“Is she your wife?” the angel quizzed.

 

“Yes!”, Jojo replied without hesitation.

 

The angel got mad, “Why you liar.. . And I thought you were a good and honest person?!”

 

“Wait guardian angel”, reasoned Jojo, “I am sorry. If I answered No, you would go into the river again and this time you’d bring out Jessica Simpson with you. Then I would have to say that she is not my wife either. Then you would go in one more time. Afterwards you would come out with my real wife. Because I would have been very honest with you, you would also give Paris and Jessica to me too. I am only a poor carpenter. I can’t afford to take care of three wives. That is why i said ‘Yes’ in the first place.”
