A suave casanova in Bayombong, Nueve Vizcaya has been arrested for blackmailing an ex-girlfriend with nude photos in exchange for sex.
The Liberal Party recently revealed its secret weapon in the fight against corruption, an acronym that cleverly serves as a way to (somehow) make it easier for voters to remember the LP candidates for senator.
The acronym, which the Inquirer says could be a “political masterstroke” (somehow) is SLAMAT LORRD, which sort of translates into Thank you, Lord if you’re as liberal with your spelling and pronunciation as you are with your economic ideology.
“Thatâ€™s not just â€˜salamat (thank you), Lord.â€™ Itâ€™s â€˜salamat Lorrrd,” Senator Francis Pangilinan, LP spokesman, patiently explains to anyone who (somehow) doesn’t quite get it.
The acronym, Pangilinan says, came up during “a recent brainstorming session,” in between, I guess, discussions about poverty alleviation and public policy.
“We thought it up,” he tells reporters before exchanging knowing winks and high fives with party mates.
Alfonso CastaÃ±eda may just be a fourth-class municipality of Nueva Vizcaya province, but its officials ride around in first class.
The municipal government may soon find itself under investigation by the Office of the Ombudsman for buying 18 sports utility vehicles worth 24 million pesos including two Toyota Fortuners, the SUV for douchebags.
The purchases, not yet approved by the Nueva Vizcaya Provincial Board, have raised eyebrows in the mountainous province.
“The purchase is already in itself highly questionable because we do not believe that spending P24 million for SUVs is a priority,” a member of the Provincial Board said.
Nueva Vizcaya vice governor Jose Gambito asked the board not to make mountains of molehills, though. He said that while town officials are using the SUVs, “there is yet no indication that [Alfonso CastaÃ±eda officials] have already paid for the vehicles.”
So, basically, Alfonso CastaÃ±eda’s local politicians could be riding around in stolen property. That’s alright, then.
Said mango will be honored in separate resolutions at the House of Representatives and the Senate for proving that the Filipino can. Grow enormous mangoes, in this case.
Feelers from political parties have already sent overtures for endorsement deals, but growers Sergio and Maria Socorro Bodiongan are keeping their options open.
While the ripe mango’s yellow color would make it a shoo-in to join the Liberal Party, the mango may opt to side with the Nacionalista Party for its affiliation with peasant groups. On the other hand, it is currently green, the color of Lakas-Kampi chairman Gilbert Teodoro Jr.
Growers from Canada and other countries where mangoes are grown have hinted at the use of performance-enhancing fertilizers, but the Socorros denied this.
“They are just jealous and want to keep the Filipino down,” they reportedly said.
Remember that grade school retort “wala yan sa lolo ko? (roughly: my grandfather is even more badass than that)” that nobody ever really used except ironically?
So, apparently, a senate report censuring Sen. Manuel Villar Jr over the C-5 Road Extension project is ‘political’, and the non-political, non-partisan solution is to organize a coup to unseat Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, who also chairs the Committee of the Whole probing the issue?
Here’s a news flash for you, senator: it’s all political. You’re a politician, for God’s sake. That goes for all of you guys. Cry me a goddamned river.
With the billions that he’s putting into his presidential campaign, Senator Manuel Bamba Villar Jr. might as well buy the entire Internet. He’s on Google AdSense, he’s on Twitter, he’s even on facebook, suggesting that you become his fan or friend or both.
He’s everywhere now, and he might just take it a little too far.
Call it a preemptive strike, or some sort of premature ejaculation, but the Indolent Indio received a press release from Bagumbayan Senator Richard Gordon pretty much telling Liberal Senator Benigno Aquino III to STFU.
Consider this gem, for example:
Now, we get that saying that a member of the cabinet sucks cocks is probably libelous. The paragraph asks more questions than it answers, though. Most nagging of which are: What was he blowing on? Were they penises? Or just things that looked like penises? Were they hotdogs? I mean, that’s a pretty easy call to make, GMANews.tv.
(Thx, Gibo Teodoro!)
There are four things wrong with this image from the Department of Agriculture:
2. Rotary phones no longer work.
3. There is no excuse for using animated .gifs any more.
4. That doesn’t even make sense.
Somewhere, a vengeful hog is plotting the destruction of our very way of life.
