Pinoy humor refers to the distinct flavor of humor observed and practised in the Philippines. It is manifested in the local culture as well as in the Filipino diaspora in several ways, mainly as idioms of expression or of plot and punch line or of word play and pun. One observer noted: "Filipinos find themselves very funny, judging by the frequency of laughter surrounding most topics of Filipino interest."[1]

Nowadays, pinoy have a very distinct kind of humor that reflects on how each individual copes with their everyday problems. But on the brighter side it also reflects on how Filipinos are optimistic about their lives.
