Easier to just give #Filipinos the fish than to teach them how to fish!

If you teach a filipino to fish, he will:

a) complain that he doesn't have a fishing rod and ask to "borrow" 10,000PHP to buy one;

b) accidentally break the fishing rod;

c) ask you for another 10,000PHP so he can buy another fishing rod;

d) lose interest because it's too difficult;

e) sell the fishing rod for 5000PHP and spend the money on cockfights to "make a profit";

f) lose all his money, and ask to "borrow" another 10,000PHP.

You might as well just give him the fish. It's cheaper.
