THE WORLD’S LARGEST crocodile in captivity is dead. Our deepest condolences to Congress.
Crocodile Lolong is dead. Interment to be announced soon. But unconfirmed reports say Lolong’s body will be brought to the Bureau of Customs for a two-day wake.
There’s no news yet on the cause of Lolong’s death but some sources say the crocodile got depressed when he was not drafted for senator.
Lolong is gone. Experts have yet to determine the cause of his death but Malacañang is already blaming the previous administration.
February 12 is the official start of the campaign period for national candidates. Lolong’s legacy will probably live on.
Lolong was the largest crocodile in captivity. The largest crocodile in public office is still being contested.
That awkward moment when corrupt politicians read something like, “Bakit si Lolong pa?!?” on Twitter. Makaramdam na kayo. Please.
Still confirming sketchy reports that Lolong’s final words were: “I am sorry.”
So long Lolong!
