There's A Joke About Singing And Rain
May 17, 2017 7:17am CST
... Oh its corny, but its so common you hear the joke in the neighborhood. For example, I'm singing a certain song. It's so happen I'm not a good singer, it's not my talent, I have no quality voice, the singing is crooked. Then someone will shout "Stop Singing, The Rain Will Come." This been the rhetoric about singing and rain. There's no connection about this thing, it's just a joke. A sarcasm that you are not a good singer so stop singing. But you know, if when you are not a good singer, there's always a time that you are singing because its a natural thing for us to sing. We don't necessary have the quality of voice but just like a form of expression. I think this joke is only in the Philippines.

There are many cultures all over the world where it used to be the custom to make a great and raucous noise (by banging on drums, tin cans or anything to hand) to summon rain. I think that the joke was that you were making such a dreadful noise that you were likely to bring on a huge downpour!
