THE KOMISYON sa Wikang Filipino or KWF wants the name Pilipinas changed to Filipinas to promote the official and modern name of the country. The KWF suggests that the name ‘Pilipinas’ on letterheads, stamps, and notepads be replaced with ‘Filipinas.’ I am not that familiar with the mandate of the KWF but this has to be asked: Anong problema n’yo?
Oh, here’s another phone-in question: Wala kayong magawa?
The great Virgilio Almario, KWF Chairman was also quoted to have said, “Unang dapat burahin ang ‘Philippines.’ Tatak ito ng patuloy na pag-iral sa ating utak ng pananakop ng mga Amerikano.” If we follow this ridiculous suggestion, the University of the Philippines will become University of Filipinas. How do we cheer then for the Fighting Maroons? UF Fight! Ang lavo!
Ang UAAP magiging UAAF
Kahit itanong n’yo pa kay Tourism Secretary Mon Jimenez…

Maaalarma ang mga moralista!
Speaking of moralista…

Mai-imbyerna sina Father at sasabihin “Over!”
Baka muling pag-initan ang “My Husvand’s Lober.”
Kaya sa Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino: Naku po… good luck!
Itong suggestion n’yo, isang malaking: watdapak!
IN HIS inaugural address, Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada said he was convicted because of his principles. He then compared himself with Nelson Mandela, Anwar Ibrahim and Aung San Suu Kyi. That was probably Erap’s funniest joke ever.
Talking about his prison term, Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada said he’s in the company of well-loved icon Nelson Mandela. When the South African leader heard this, he almost died… laughing.
On his being an ex-convict, Erap said he’s in the company of Malaysia’s Anwar Ibrahim and Nobel laureates Aung San Suu Kyi and Nelson Mandela. After Erap’s speech, Mandela, Anwar, and Suu Kyi immediately issued a joint statement clarifying they were never jailed for plunder.
In his inaugural address as Manila mayor, Joseph Estrada said, “The fight against corruption will be the centerpiece of my administration.” Hey Erap, 1998 called. Narinig na raw n’ya ‘yan.
ABS-CBN reported that Benjo Benaldo left a suicide note in which he allegedly wrote, “My death is for electoral reform. Sana mabago na (ang) sistema.” The “system” replied, “You too!”
In his alleged suicide note, Benjo Benaldo wrote, “My death is for electoral reform.” Considering however the needed reforms in our electoral system, at least 200 solons must do the same.
“Know what you are talking about.”

“Ipinapasiya, gaya ng ginagawang pagpapasiya ngayon, na ibalik ang gamit ng ‘Filipinas’ habang pinipigil ang paggamit ng ‘Pilipinas’ upang mapalaganap ang opisyal at modernisadong katawagan ng bansa na kumikilala sa kasaysayan at pag-unlad ng pagkabansa nito.”
~Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino
“For the first time in history, Manila will have an ex-convict as your mayor.”
