MY FELLOW Batangueño, Ralph Recto, who has never spoken a single word against the pork barrel scam since it was exposed last year, is in the news now. After he was mentioned in the Benhur Luy files, an angry Recto broke his silence on the PDAF scam saying, all whistleblowers should be jailed. “They should PAY for what they did,” an angry Recto said, “plus 12 percent.”

Ralph Recto has never spoken about the pork barrel scam since it was exposed last year. When he finally did last week, he trained his guns on PDAF scam whistleblowers like Benhur Luy and Merlina Suñas. He said, “Lahat ng whistleblower na may kinalaman d’yan dapat makulong!” And Janet Napoles was like, “Thanks for the support!”

Veep Veep
Vice President Jejomar Binay reveals he has yet to choose his bet for VP in 2016. Everyone, he says, has a chance. In fact, despite a plunder case against Jinggoy Estrada, the senator can still be his running inmate.

According to the Philippine National Police, termites and cockroaches have invaded Janet Lim-Napoles’s bungalow-type detention facility in Fort Sto. Domingo. But the PNP did not get rid of the insects since the detention facility was purposely constructed for living things like them. You know. Pests.

1Just Married
Vice President Binay was one of the principal sponsors in the wedding of Atty. Levito Baligod, the former lawyer of PDAF scam whistleblowers Benhur Luy and Merlina Suñas. Congratulations… Jinggoy, Bong, and Enrile!

Abad Year
After quitting the Arroyo cabinet in 2005, Sec. Florencio ‘Butch’ Abad paid an income tax of only P8,150 in the next three years, saying he was then jobless and was only doing freelance consultancy. Records showed Abad paid P6,400 in 2006; P1,500 in 2007 and P250 in 2008. In 2009, he was tax-exempt. Maybe Abad can mentor us on how to survive with that measly income.

Exactly a year before joining the Aquino administration, Butch Abad reported an income of P16,000 for 2009. That’s 16,000 pesos for one year! When a group of kasambahay heard this, they died. Twice.

Income Tax
At least three bills seeking to lower the income tax rate have been filed in Congress. You know what that means? Butch Abad need not pay anything.

Three solons are proposing an income tax rate reduction. How about a nakaw rate reduction?

1No Smoking
World No Tobacco Day is observed every May 31. To draw attention to the negative effects of smoking, the Department of Health conducted public forums on lung cancer, respiratory diseases, aging, and President Aquino’s lovelife.

According to the Department of Health, around 240 Filipinos die every day due to tobacco-related illnesses. Those who survive either go bald or remain single at 54. [You’ve been warned.]

May 31 is World No Tobacco Day – or as President Aquino would say, “Whatever!”

After Erap’s visit in the Laguna capitol, his nephew ER Ejercito stepped down as governor. When will Erap pay a visit to Jinggoy in the Senate?

According to a recent SWS study, 9 in 10 Filipinos experienced financial shortage in the last 12 months. The other one was a lawmaker.

Former TESDA director general Augusto Syjuco Jr. who is facing six graft charges before the Sandiganbayan, filed a libel case against President Aquino for virtually calling him a “thief” in his State of the Nation Address last year. Syjuco said the President’s “personal attacks” tarnished his reputation. We tried to get the side of Syjuco’s “reputation,” but it was nowhere to be found.

Cat Killer
Abandoned by his wife, a 29-year-old man from Antipolo City went berserk and killed 11 cats. He was charged with 99 counts of animal murder.

Sound Bites
“That Napoles thinks the disinformation she is purveying qualifies her to be a state’s witness is an insult and an outrage. She has the gall to describe herself as a victim of the same political culture she is accused of profiting billions of pesos from; in truth, her affidavit is best described, as many have already described it, not as a tell-all but a blame-all. It would be sheer folly to take her at her word.”
~Philippine Daily Inquirer, Editorial

Poll Results
Dapat bang bumaba na puwesto si Laguna Governor ER Ejercito?

– YES. Dapat siyang sumunod sa utos ng Comelec. 66.96%
– Wala akong pakialam. 22.77%
– NO. Hintayin ang pinal na desisyon ng Korte Suprema. 10.27%

We have a new poll. The other day, this image of a Hong Kong textbook page went viral. Do you find this insulting or offensive?


Have a great month of June!

FOR OVERSPENDING last elections, Laguna Governor ER Ejercito was ordered unseated by the Commission on Elections. Loyal supporters of Ejercito have barricaded themselves outside the Laguna provincial capitol to express their undying love for the actor-politician. It pays to overspend.

On Tuesday, a defiant ER Ejercito faced his supporters and delivered an impromptu speech. It was so emotional and impassioned, Ejercito expected no less than a best actor trophy from the PMPC.

Here’s a portion of ER Ejercito’s speech yesterday
(And what he wanted to say but couldn’t)

“Binaboy at binastos ng Comelec at Malacañang ang 550,000 votes.”
(Hindi ako papayag na masayang ang 23.5 million pesos na nagastos ko. Hello!)

“Pilit po akong inaalis ng Malakanyang sa pwesto dahil hindi ako bahagi ng Liberal Party.”
(Actually, ang vice governor na papalit sa akin ay miyembro ng Nacionalista Party. Pero ‘di ko pwedeng sabihin ‘yon dahil mababawasan ang impact ng aking speech.)

“Hindi na nirerespeto ng Malakanyang ang rule of law.”
(Parang ako lang.)

“Ako ay mananatiling lehitimong gobernador ng Laguna ngayon at magpakailanman.”
(Sa dami ng nagkalat kong mukha sa buong probinsya, kahit wala na ako sa mundo, nasa Laguna pa rin ako. Tse!)

1New Gov?
Just a day after the Comelec released its ruling, Laguna Vice Governor Ramil Hernandez of the Nacionalista Party took his oath as new governor replacing ER Ejercito. Hernandez and Ejercito: The Fast and the Furious.

Janet Lim-Napoles has submitted an expanded list to the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee. In her 32-page affidavit, Napoles decried being labeled as the “architect of the PDAF scam” saying, she didn’t even finish high school so how could she have studied architecture?


CBCP president and Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas appealed to Filipino Catholics to pray an “extra rosary” from May 31 to August 15 for the “conversion of the culprits in the pork barrel scam.” Even God was like, “Good luck with that!”

Holy Visit
Pope Francis recently visited the Holy Land. When he arrived there, members of the international media asked, “Do you have a plunder case too?”

Reports say Bong Revilla will be allowed the opportunity to deliver yet another privilege speech. Thinking Filipinos will have the opportunity to ignore yet another hour of blah blah.

Bong Revilla will reportedly deliver yet another privilege speech. Filipinos with low tolerance for bullshit are advised not to watch or listen.

Jinggoy Estrada lashed out at the media for being “unfair” in reporting about the pork barrel scam. He said the media tend to focus only on three senators. The actor-turned politician added, “We also have an honor and a name to protect.” Where?

Panfilo Lacson has not spoken to the press about the pork barrel scam for a couple of days now. I hope he’s ok.

The DOTC has fired controversial MRT Line 3 general manager Al Vitangcol III. The news wasn’t surprising at all. His term as MRT 3 head was a trainwreck.

In a Congressional inquiry, MRT general manager Al Vitangcol revealed that last May 26, he was fired when he told his bosses that he’s about to resign. That’s how badly they wanted him out.

A large crocodile attacked and killed a 30-year-old fisherman in Palawan last Thursday. The fisherman was reportedly on his way to work when he was attacked by the reptile. Authorities are conducting a probe even as local residents started hunting the crocodile. Lawmakers appealed to the public not to judge their colleague pending full investigation.

The Richest
The SALNs of senators are out. With a net worth of P1.6 billion, the richest senator is still Cynthia Villar. With a net worth of only P4.9 million, the poorest senator is still a multimillionaire.

To Catch A Thief
Policemen will reportedly ride the jeep in civilian clothes as part of the PNP’s campaign to catch robbers and thieves. Why ride the jeep? Why not just go directly to the Senate?

NBA center-forward Andray Blatche is now a naturalized Filipino. The Senate approved a bill seeking to grant Filipino citizenship to the Brooklyn Nets player so he could play for Gilas Pilipinas in the FIBA World Cup. This begs the question: when will they naturalize David Pomeranz?

“Bata pa lamang ako ay natuto na akong maghanap-buhay. Sa biyaya ng Diyos, sa aking tiyaga, sipag at pawis, at sa tulong ng mga taong nakilala ko, ito ay aking napalago hanggang sa aking narating ngayon.”
~Janet Lim-Napoles (Affidavit)

“Bukas tayo sa posibilidad na ang ginagawa lang niya (Napoles) ay guluhin ang istorya. Habang dumadami nang dumadami ang iimbestigahan natin, siguro kakaimbestiga time’s up na tayo. Hindi na naisampa yung kaso. Baka iyon ang strategy.”
~President Aquino

“My God! Kung alam ko lang na ‘yong computer eh Napoles, hindi ko na tinanggap ‘yon. Kaliit-liit naman no’n.”
~Sen. Cynthia Villar after being mentioned in the Napoles affidavit

ONLINE REPORTS have quoted the private doctor of Janet Lim-Napoles as saying sexual contact may have caused the vaginal bleeding of the alleged pork barrel scam queen. But her lawyer denied it, saying she didn’t have sex while confined at the Ospital ng Makati. The doctor then claimed he was possibly misquoted. So what’s the truth?

In the interest of accurate, fair, and balanced reporting, we sought Napoles’s vagina for comment and luckily, the request for an interview was granted. To make the vagina more comfortable, we asked Krissy to do the exclusive! Enjoy!

Ladies and gentlemen… the one… the only… the one and the only KRISSY!

HELLLOOOOO! I’m baaaaack! ‘Kita n’yo naman. Kahit busy ako sa taping, commercial shoot, live TV shows, at sa imaginary love life ko, pinagbigyan ko pa rin kayo. Say ‘thank you Krissy!’ Come on. Say thank you to me naaaa. Ayaw n’yo? Fine. Ako na nga lang ang magti-thank you… ‘Thank you Krissy for being so masipag. You’re the best talaga.’ There. I said it. Gosh. Para na naman akong luka-luka. Nagsasalita akong mag-isa Aha-ha-ha Anyway, diretso na tayo sa interview dahil kailangan kong umalis nang maaga. Teka, asan na ba

Hi Krissy! Mwah!

Ay!!! Nakakaloka ka. Nand’yan ka na pala. Grabehh, namumula ka. It’s so hot kasi, right? Mga Kapamilya… kasama ko po ngayon – first and exclusive – dito lang siya magsasalita – hindi kay Jessica, hindi kay Korina, at lalong hindi kay Anthony Taberna… ang kontrobersyal na sex organ ng equally controversial niyang amo si Ms Janet ‘Jenny’ Lim-Napoles. Hi there!

Hello Krissy! Mwah!

Wait! Bakit ka ba mwah nang mwah? Ang sagwa huh. Hindi ko feel ang expression mo when you say mwah. Promise. How old ka na ba?

Singkwenta na Krissy.

In fairness huh… hindi halata. Mukha ka lang 62 aha-ha-ha! Ano nga palang status mo? Fresh, Rotten, o Sakto Lang?


You wish! Aha-ha-ha Ilusyunada ka rin huh! By the way, I like your hair!

I like yours too. Ahihihi. Mas maigsi nga lang ‘yong sa ‘yo.

True! Pero mas love ko ang color ng hair mo kahit may split ends. ‘Di masyadong light, ‘di rin masyadong dark. Sinong gumupit sa ‘yo?

Si Ma’am Jenny lang.

Kaya pala! Tell her konting trim pa Aha-ha-ha Sandali, I’ll take a photo of you, ipapakita ko kay Boy.

Naku! ‘Wag na Krissy. Pangit ako ngayon. Marami akong selfie sa Fort Sto. Domingo. Bibigyan na lang kita next time.

Arte! So anong feeling na nasa news ka ngayon? Bongga ka huh! Tinalbugan mo ang World Economic Forum at ang Martial Law sa Thailand! Ikaw talaga ang top story! Kaloka.

Nagtataka nga ako Krissy kung bakit banner story ako sa mga news sites at evening news program. Talk about priorities!

Alam mo, you speak better English than your Ma’am Jenny. I like you naaaa! Smart vajayjay ka.

Thank you Krissy. ‘Yon bang sa ‘yo magaling na?

Excuuuuse me! I’m clean ‘no! If you’re referring to that Joey Marquez thingy, come on! 2014 na… nag-move on na ang lahat! I’m ok now. I feel fresh! Sandali, bakit ba napunta sa akin ang usapan? Ikaw ang isyu ngayon! So, ano? Dinudugo ka ba talaga?

Ewan ko. Hindi ko alam.

Helllloooo! Mismong private doctor mo na ang nagsabing bleeding ka raw. You mean he’s lying?

Ewan ko. Hindi ko alam.

Kainis ka! Manang-mana ka sa amo mo. Ito na lang: totoo bang nakipag-sex ang iyong Ma’am Jenny kaya ka dinudugo?

Ano ako… virgin?!? Wala nang uterus, wala nang ovaries… tapos intact ang hymen? Hiyang-hiya naman sa akin si Mama Mary!

So, ano nga? Naging intimate ba these past few days ang Ma’am Jenny at Sir Jaime mo?

MOMOL lang.

Winner! Updated ka huh! Pati MOMOL alam mo. Titigan mo na lang ang picture na ito ng iyong amo. Hindi ko siya kinaya! Kahit naka-confine at sari-saring sakit ang idinadaing, may time pang magpa-manicure.


Nitong mga nakaraang araw ba napansin mo sa iyong paligid ang kanyang French tip?

Hindi ko matandaan. Baka tulog ako.

Natutulog talaga ang puk*?!!? NILOLOKO mo naman ako eh. I hate you naaa.

Ewan ko ho. ‘Tsaka masyado nang private ‘yan. Kailangan ba talagang itanong?

As a matter of fact, yes. Alam mo naman, desperate times call for desperate measures. Who knows, baka sinadya ang pagdurugo mo para manatili ang Ma’am Jenny mo sa ospital. Sabi nga ni Sen. Sonny Angara, kailangang i-prove ang claim. So ano? Ginagamit ka lang ba ng iyong amo para ‘di siya pabalikin sa Fort Sto. Domingo? Umamin ka!

GINAGAMIT?!? I wish!!! Paninira lang ‘yan.

Kung papipiliin ka, saan mo gustong mag-stay: Ospital ng Makati o Fort Sto. Domingo?

Siyempre sa OsMak! Ang init kaya sa Laguna! Lagi akong natutuyuan ng butil-butil na pawis do’n.

Yuccccck! Gross.

Sobra ka namang maka-yuck Krissy! Perfect ka?! At least si Ma’am Jenny, isa lang ang naging asawa. Hindi tulad ng iba d’yan, papalit-palit ng lalaki kaya until now, single pa rin at trying hard magka-boyfriend.

Helllooooooo! At bakit pati love life ko pinapakialaman mo?

Wala akong binanggit na pangalan. Hashtag defensive.

I’m not defensive ‘no! Pero wala kang right magparinig sa akin. Kapatid ba kita?! Ballsy ba ang name mo o kaya Pinky? ‘Wag na si Viel, walang masasabi ‘yon. At least naging masaya ako sa piling ng mga nakarelasyon ko.

Yeah right.

Inggit ka lang kasi matatangkad sila at popular pa. Eh ‘yong amo mong lalaki?


Pork barrel queen ‘yang Ma’am Jenny mo!

Wala akong pakialam!

Hindi siya bibigyan ng immunity ng kapatid ko!

Hindi ako affected.

Pwes, makukulong siya for life! Sa Correctional! Walang aircon! Walang ventilation! Walang tubig! Pagpapawisan ka! Mangangamoy ka!

Ba’t ba tayo nag-aaway friend? ‘Di ba dapat love, love, love?

Boom panes! Aha-ha-ha! Eh ‘di sumuko ka rin. Ako na talaga! Huling tanong: kung bibigyan ka ng chance na lumipat sa ibang katawan, kaninong katawan ka lilipat: kay Dr. Elenita Binay o kay Korina Sanchez?

Walang third option?

Ayaw mo sa dalawa? Girl, malapit na ang 2016. Malay mo, maging First Vagina ka.

No, thanks. Eh ‘di ba may graft case din ‘yong isa sa kanila? Kapag minalas, kulungan pa rin ang bagsak ko.

Eh ‘di kay Korina ka na nga lang!

Ayaw ko rin. Afraid ako sa asawa niya ‘no! Eh kung mura-murahin ako no’n tapos magsisigaw: “Tang-i*a! Kailan pa nagkaroon ng ganyang rule ang mag-asawa? Tang-i*a! Walang period, period sa akin!” Hard.

Eh kung sa akin ka na lang kaya lumipat?


Kapal mo huh! Masyado kang choosy ‘di ka naman pretty! Tse! Mag-message ka na nga lang sa Filipino people.

Ayoko nang maglitanya dahil pagod na rin ako. Haters gonna hate. Pero ito lang ang masasabi ko: In a major, major way, I labia all! Mwah.

JANET LIM-NAPOLES’S personal doctors say she is suffering from vaginal bleeding. In the interest of fairness, we will get the side of the vagina.

According to her doctors, Janet Lim-Napoles is bleeding. Even her own blood couldn’t stand her anymore.

Reacting to Janet Lim-Napoles’s doctors’ claim that she’s suffering from vaginal bleeding, Sen. Sonny Angara said, “Well sa akin, ‘yong internal bleeding, mahirap idahilan ‘yon; kailangang ipakita din ‘yon.” To which, Napoles replied, “With pleasure!”

Janet Napoles is allegedly suffering from vaginal bleeding. But Sen. Sonny Angara believes, “Kailangang ipakita din ‘yon.” And former Senator Edgardo Angara was like, “Anak nga kita!”

Janet Lim-Napoles who repeatedly denied any involvement in the pork barrel scam is willing to undergo a lie detector test. In other news, Mila Kunis who’s due to give birth next month is willing to undergo a pregnancy test.

Pork barrel scam queen Janet Napoles is willing to undergo a lie detector test – on one condition. She wants multiple choice questions.

Janet Lim-Napoles’s lawyer Bruce Rivera says not a single media personality received gifts of any form from Janet Lim-Napoles. Also, the Holocaust didn’t happen.

According to Janet Napoles’s lawyer, not a single media personality received gifts of any form from his client. Even Lolit Solis was like, “Echosera!”

Detention Cell
The Philippine National Police is renovating a detention facility in Camp Crame for Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada, and Bong Revilla in case the Sandiganbayan orders their arrest. The prospect of being imprisoned yet again doesn’t bother Enrile. He’s been through tougher times – like being a prisoner of love.

On Tuesday, Bong Revilla was quoted to have said, “Basta ang masasabi ko lang, handa na ako because God is with me.” To which, God responded, “#AsaMuch!”

Accused of plunder, actor Bong Revilla said, “Handa na ako because God is with me.” When God heard this, He slapped two angels. #boompeyns

Reports say the country’s power situation will worsen in three years. Or as Jojo Binay calls it, “my administration.”

The power situation is expected to worsen in three years. Vice (future) President Binay is bracing himself for complaints, protests, and blackout-related jokes.

The Comelec en banc voted 7-0 to unseat Laguna Governor ER Ejercito for overspending in the last elections. Ejercito will issue an official statement via billboards, tarpaulins and TV commercials.

Laguna Governor ER Ejercito was ordered to step down for overspending in the last elections. The Comelec said he spent P24.5M during the campaign – way above the P4.5M limit. The decision reportedly shocked Ejercito. Looking at his face though, it was hard to tell.

Godzilla is still showing in the Philippines. The hit franchise tells the story of a giant lizard that wreaks havoc on communities claiming lives and destroying properties. Godzilla is probably the most destructive reptile in history. In close second? The reptiles of Senate and Congress.

HERE’S WHY according to prominent Filipinos:

President Aquino: Inabutan lang ho namin ang problemang ‘yan. Kung inyo hong matatandaan, wala pa kami sa puwesto nang tumawid ang manok na ‘yan. ‘Yong dating administrasyon ang dapat sumagot n’yan.

Janet Lim-Napoles: Malay ko. Hindi ko po alam.

Juan Ponce Enrile: I will answer that in the proper forum.

Sec. Sonny Coloma: Ewan ko nga ba kung bakit basta na lang tumawid ang manok na ‘yan. Pwede namang i-try ang other means of public transport like buses. Hindi naman siguro siksikan do’n.

Bong Revilla: Kaya nga hinahamon ko ang gobyernong ito eh. Ikulong n’yo ang manok na ‘yan. Ngayon na! Pagod na pagod na ‘yan sa katatawid sa kalsada.

Jinggoy Estrada: Political harassment ang ginawa sa manok kaya tumawid ito. Pati mga sisiw idinamay! Leave the chicks alone!

JV Ejercito: Ayoko nang patulan ang chicken. Lagi namang galit sa akin ‘yan eh. Sanay na ako.

Benhur Luy: May nag-utos po kasi sa manok kaya tumawid ito. Minsan papuntang Senate, minsan papuntang government offices.

Mar Roxas: ‘T@ng-in@! Kailan pa naging isyu ‘yang pagtawid na ‘yan? No comment! You must remember, I am a Roxas and that’s only a chicken.

Cristina Enrile: The chicken has an affair with the rooster on the other side. You know, these hens would always offer themselves to the rooster.

Gigi Reyes: So fault lang ng chicken? Dahil lalaki ang rooster, wala siyang kasalanan?

Vice President Binay: Ako ay bumabati at nagpupugay sa chicken sa kanyang matagumpay na pagtawid sa kalsada. Mabuhay ka!

Manny Pacquiao: ‘Pag pray na lang natin ang manok.

Lawyer Ferdinand Topacio : Isa lang ang natitiyak ko. Babalik din ang chicken na ‘yan. Kapag ‘di ‘yan bumalik, ipapaputol ko ang isa kong itlog.

Miriam Defensor-Santiago: Apparently, the chicken only wants attention. I have reason to believe that it’s a member of closet gay and bisexual fowls.

Panfilo Lacson: For the nth time, the chicken is not gay and it does not intend to be one.

Franklin Drilon: Inuulit ko, wala akong transaksyon sa manok na ‘yan. Ni isang itlog ay wala akong tinanggap kaya wala akong masasabi sa ginawa nitong pagtawid.

Anne Curtis: Why was the chicken outside the coop? Who let it out? It’s not even classy enough to cross that street.

Claudine Barretto: Nagpa-Botox.

Tourism Sec. Mon Jimenez: It’s more fun on the other side.

Venus Raj: Thank you so much sir for that wonderful question. Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Good evening Philippines! You know what sir, in the chicken’s 2 years of existence, I can say there is nothing major major, I mean problem that it has done in its life because it is very confident with its family and the love they are giving the chicken. So thank you so much that it successfully crossed the street. Thank you so so much!

Vice Ganda: Itinanong mo na ‘yan last year! Paulit-ulit?! Unli?!?

Viel Aquino-Dee:

Kris Aquino: On behalf of the chicken, humihingi po ako ng privacy. Ito na po ang huling pagkakataon na magsasalita ako tungkol sa pagtawid na ito. I promise not to talk about this again sa online posts ko man o sa interviews.

ACCORDING to the files of Benhur Luy, several prominent media practitioners received cash gifts through conduits from Janet Lim-Napoles. Aside from Korina Sanchez, Mike Enriquez and Rey Pacheco, also mentioned was radio broadcaster Deo Macalma. Talk about “espesyal na balita.”

Janet Lim-Napoles, through her lawyer Bruce Rivera, apologized to JV Ejercito for including his name on the ‘Napoles list.’ When will she apologize to the Filipino people for stealing their money?

When CNN discovered that news reporter and editor Marie-Louise Gumuchian committed plagiarism, the network decided to fire her. Tito Sotto called the decision “harsh.”

The Anti-Drunk and Drugged Driving Act of 2013 will take effect on June 1. In totally unrelated news, Anne Curtis vows not to go to parties again.

“I am astounded to learn that I was supposed to have received a birthday gift from her one time 10 years ago in 2004. This never happened. I did not receive any such gift, in cash or kind, from Ms Napoles or her company nor through emissaries then and up to now.”
~Korina Sanchez

“I vehemently and in the strongest of terms deny knowing Janet Napoles at all and just as strongly deny receiving any gift in whatever form from her.”

1: Bargaining
2: Acceptance
3: Denial
4: Anger
5: Depression
These are the five stages of a lawmaker’s transactions with Janet Lim-Napoles

1: Bargaining
“Forty percent lang ba ang makukuha ko? Lugi naman yata ako d’yan!”

“Sige na nga… singkwenta na rin. Basta ‘wag n’yo lang sasabihin kay Senator *****! Forty-five lang ‘yong huling bigay ko sa kanya eh.”

2: Acceptance
“Jenny, nakuha ko na ‘yong 23M. Timbrehan kita kung kailan ang sunod na release. Sanga pala, sino ‘yong nag-cater sa ‘yo kagabi sa Heritage? Sarap ng lechon huh.”

3: Denial
“Hindi ko kilala si Janet Lim-Napoles. Ni singkong duling ay wala akong ibinigay sa NGOs niya. Kung meron man ay tiyak na pineke ang pirma ko; pineke ang mga dokumento! ”

4: Anger
“This is political harassment! Pinupulitika ako! Sobra-sobrang pang-aapi na ang ginagawa sa akin at sa aking pamilya. Mga walang puso!”

5: Depression
“Paano ‘pag nakulong ako?”

“Paano na ang plano ko sa 2016?”

“’Pakamatay na lang kaya ako?”

AT LEAST FOUR versions of the Napoles list have been made public. When sought for reaction, Janet Lim-Napoles said, “If you can’t beat them, confuse them.”

The controversial Napoles list (four versions of it) has been made public. Do you know what that means? Ping Lacson can go back now to doing his job.

At least four versions of the Napoles list have been released to the public. The lists are confusing. Tanda, Pogi and Sexy are high-five-ing.

Several versions of the so-called Napoles list have been made public. Benhur Luy’s files appeared to be the most comprehensive. Even the Black Nazarene was on the list.

A furious Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago attacked Panfilo Lacson for saying she was on the Napoles list. Getting personal, Santiago said Lacson was on the list of “closeted gays or bisexuals in public service.” To which Lacson, replied, “Excuse me, I’m not gay.”

Former senator Robert Barbers was also on the list. He’s still mum on the issue though. Deadma.

According to the Benhur Luy’s files, Jinggoy Estrada’s transactions with Napoles amounted to 1.6 billion pesos. The same list says then San Juan representative JV Ejercito also transacted with Napoles. The amount transacted was 5 million pesos. Jinggoy couldn’t stop laughing.

Former Pampanga representative and incumbent Energy Regulatory Commission Chair Zenaida Ducut has been consistently mentioned in pork scam-related documents, lists and testimonies. She allegedly pocketed millions in pesos in kickbacks from PDAF funds, and even acted as agent for Napoles. There’s a reason why there’s a ‘cut’ in Ducut.

Northern Samar Representative Emil Ong said congressmen should not be blamed if their pork barrel funds were misused. Lawmakers like Ong is one of the reasons why nature gave us the middle finger.

-Tama si Jinggoy. Leave his family alone. 3.65%

ACCORDING TO rehabilitation czar Panfilo Lacson, making public the so-called Napoles list will destroy the Senate. Which begs the question, “What’s there to destroy?”

What exactly is on that controversial list? According to unimpeachable sources, the list – saved in a USB flash drive has clickable links to several classified but unverified documents including:

- Actresses, sexy stars, beauty queens, and models who slept with Bong Revilla in the last 12 months

- Miriam Defensor-Santiago’s psychiatric evaluation report

- Bank accounts of JV Ejercito in the Carribean

- Cynthia Villar’s Botox procedure receipts that were allegedly charged to her office

- Records of Ralph Recto’s visits to a private night club in Quezon City

- 20 secret side accounts used by the staff of Alan Peter and Pia Cayetano to troll Vice President Binay and son, Junjun on Twitter

- Jinggoy Estrada’s confession letter to Erap (as regards what, nobody knows for sure)

- Transcript of sext messages between Juan Ponce Enrile and Gigi Reyes

- Minutes of several meetings between Gringo Honasan and retired Marine major Jaime Napoles

- Photos of Grace Poe and Bongbong Marcos together in a children’s party when they were toddlers. The caption reads: “They’re the cutest siblings I know. Proud Dad here. – Ferdie”

- Lito Lapid’s letter to the Senate president requesting that he be allowed to sleep during sessions citing his acute insomnia

- A loyal ABS-CBN supporter, Sergio Osmeña III’s subscription contract to PBB ALL IN 24/7

- Overseas itinerary of Antonio Trillanes’s staff while their boss was still in prison resulting in huge travel expenses

- Frank Drilon’s FDA-disapproved diet program

- A copy of Tito Sotto’s yet to be delivered (privilege) speech titled: “Ako, ang RH Law, at ang Panggagahasa Kay Pepsi Paloma – Diumano: My Version of Truth”

- Jewel May Lobaton’s tell-all affidavit in which she bared the shocking reason why she left Koko Pimentel; an allegation that could destroy the political career of the senator

- Contracts between Janet Lim-Napoles and her caterer-friends for the wedding of Bam Aquino and wife, Timi in 2012, and the christening of Chiz Escudero’s twins in 2008.

- Transcript of TG Guingona’s alleged one-on-one interview with Ruby Tuason the night before she appeared before the Senate blue ribbon committee

- Love letters between a former lawmaker and Loren Legarda

- Nancy Binay’s final OJT grade: Singko, which was changed to 3.0 after her father intervened

And lastly…
– An NSO-authenticated birth certificate of Sonny Angara; the document identified his “birth mother” as Loren Legarda.

The Office of the Ombudsman is reportedly conducting a lifestyle check on Jinggoy Estrada. Already indicted for plunder, Jinggoy described the lifestyle check as “political harassment.” In layman’s terms, ‘karma.’

Jinggoy says he and his wife will be celebrating their silver anniversary on June 28. He described it as “a milestone.” Well, it is! Not everyone is given the chance to celebrate their anniversary in prison.

A defiant Bong Revilla recently dared Malacañang, “Ikulong na nila ako. Ngayon na! Hinahamon ko sila, ngayon na. Dahil pagod na ako. Masyadong mahaba na ang sakripisyo ng pamilya ko.” The impassioned statement received a salute from his family and an automatic nomination from PMPC.

Bong Revilla dared Malacañang to jail him now ‘coz he’s already tired. Here’s a tip: resign.

Revilla also accused Malacañang of ‘hostaging’ the Senate and the House of Representatives saying, “Kung anuman ang gusto nilang ipasunod, susunod lahat. Ano pa’ng magagawang matinong trabaho namin dito sa Kongreso?” And even Congress was like, “Trabaho? As if!”

Sony has invented a 185-terabyte cassette tape that could store 47 million songs. That’s the good news. The bad news is it will take you 47 years to rewind.

Sony has re-invented a cassette tape that will allow users to store 47 million songs. In response, today’s youth said, “What’s a cassette tape?”

KrisThe Barrettos
In a TV interview, actress Claudine Barretto, who’s at odds with her sisters, lambasted Gretchen Barretto and called her “heartless.” Addressing her ate, Claudine said, “You say you’re happy? I don’t see that. With your face all botoxed and all, I don’t see that.” Inside, Gretchen was very angry. Outside, it’s hard to tell.

An incensed Claudine Barretto told Gretchen, “You say you’re happy? I don’t see that. With your face all botoxed and all, I don’t see that.” Sources say Gretchen monitored the full interview. In fact, while watching the 10-minute exclusive, she didn’t blink.

Viewers have had enough of the Barretto sisters’ public catfight. They advised them to just move on. To which, Gretchen’s face replied, “Good luck to me!”

BONG REVILLA challenged Senate blue ribbon committee chairman TG Guingona to compel the DOJ to release the list of lawmakers allegedly implicated by Janet Napoles in the pork barrel scam. The action star said if the committee wouldn’t do that, Guingona should resign. In response, Guingona handed Revilla a dictionary and advised him to look up the meaning of the word ‘irony.’

Bong Revilla was quoted to have said, “I challenge the chairman of the blue ribbon committee to compel the DOJ to release the list.” Guingona replied, “I challenge the good senator to define ‘compel.’”

Socialite Ruby Tuason, who admitted pocketing millions of pesos from the pork barrel scam was granted immunity after she returned 40 million pesos to the government. Ruby was so happy, her face almost moved.

Ruby Tuason returned 40 million pesos to the government and was granted immunity. Asked to elaborate on her deal with the government, the socialite was tight-lipped… and tight-cheeked and tight-foreheaded.

Jinggoy Estrada is furious about this deal between the government and his Tita Ruby. Jinggoy says Tuason “will crumble in the cross-examination.” But the socialite is unfazed and unafraid. Analysts believe the battle will come down to whoever blinks first. Advantage: Ruby.

Experts at the Ospital ng Makati say pork barrel queen Janet Lim-Napoles may now be discharged from the hospital following a successful surgery last month. But her personal doctors from St. Luke’s insist that she remain in the hospital because of her elevated sugar levels and blood pressure. “Sorry for the inconvenience. Your taxes are working for Napoles’s doctors.”

The Legal Wife
Voting 13-2, the Supreme Court en banc ruled that the legal wife has the rights to her husband’s remains even if he had been with another woman for 15 years. And Cristina Enrile was like, “I know, right?”

SWS Survey
When shown a card with three choices by the SWS, 53 percent of Filipinos considered themselves “poor.” When shown a card with photos of corrupt senators, 100 percent of Filipinos considered themselves idiots.

US-based Cato Institute compiled a list of the world’s most miserable nations. The most miserable is Venezuela with a misery index of 79.4 followed by Iran with 61.6, and Serbia, 44.8. The Philippines, with a misery index of 11.7 ranked 68th only. Filipinos demand a recount.

1BIRDWise Bird
Recent scientitific research found that the forked tailed drongo bird of Africa can imitate the sounds of about 51 birds and other animals. By tricking and scaring other species, drongos are able to steal their meals. Further studies showed the forked tailed drongo birds were lawmakers in their past life.

Disaster Alerts
The Senate has approved on third and final reading a bill that would require telecom companies to send disaster alerts. I think they’re already doing that. In fact, almost everyday, i get a text message that reads, “Want free ring tones? Send STOP if you blah blah blah.”

Former senator Francis ‘Kiko’ Pangilinan has been appointed as presidential assistant for food security. There’s no truth to rumors that the post was initially offered to Sharon Cuneta.

KrisFerry Ride
Talk show host and actress Kris Aquino took a ride on the Pasig River ferry Monday. The presidential sister who was with MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino enjoyed the experience. Reports say Kris had so much fun despite the garbage. It was like watching “My Little Bossings” all over again.

Kris Aquino took a ferry ride with MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino Monday. Reports say the re-opening of the Pasig River ferry system was a success, attracting hundreds of commuters. Kris was impressed but she told Tolentino that the opening day of Bimby’s movie was still more successful.

1.1 oBAMA
TWO YEARS before the May 2016 national elections, Pulse Asia released a survey on potential presidential candidates. The big winner was Vice President Jejomar Binay. But the biggest winners were Tanda, Pogi and Sexy.

Pulse Asia asked some 1,200 respondents, “Of the people in this list, whom would you vote for if the 2016 presidential elections were held today and they were candidates?” Vice President Binay got 40 percent. Sen. Grace Poe got 15 percent. Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago got 10 percent. Sen. Francis Escudero got 9 percent and DILG Sec. Mar Roxas got upset.

Reacting to the latest Pulse Asia poll, DILG Sec. Mar Roxas says he doesn’t pay attention to surveys. He also doesn’t pay green fees.

Right now, observers believe Jejomar Binay is the man to BEAT. To which Korina Sanchez said, “Oh, I’d love to!”

Mar and Jojo
On Twitter, Vice President Binay posted a photo of him and DILG Sec. Mar Roxas. The shot was taken at the Army headquarters in Taguig City where US President Obama delivered a speech last Tuesday. It was actually Sen. Loren Legarda who asked the feuding political rivals to pose for that rare photo-op. Legarda is now the frontrunner for the Nobel Peace Prize.

According to DILG Sec. Mar Roxas, he didn’t feel awkward shaking hands with Vice President Binay. During their brief conversation, Roxas said they talked about basketball. It was nice to see them share a light moment. Of course, it would have been a tense moment if they talked about golf.

CBCP, Again
Fr. Edu Gariguez, executive secretary of the CBCP’s National Secretariat for Social Action criticized the government for spending thousands of pesos for US President Barack Obama’s overnight hotel stay. The CHURCH official said the money spent during the Obama visit came from TAXPAYERS. Which begs the question, so why are you ranting?

Salary Hike
Sen. Antonio Trillanes has filed a bill that seeks to, among others, increase the monthly salary of lawmakers from P90,000 to over P350,000, saying this will help curb corruption in government. Trillanes has underestimated the greed of lawmakers.

Critics slammed Ilocos Norte Rep. Rudy Fariñas for the manner in which he took a selfie with Pope Francis last weekend. Fariñas almost hit the face of Philippine Ambassador to the Holy See Mercedes Tuazon when he posed with the Pope who was still talking and shaking hands with Tuazon. Supporters of Fariñas defended the solon saying there was nothing wrong with what he did and that the Pope was ‘game’ anyway. Palusot.

Ilocos Norte Rep. Rudy Fariñas took a selfie with Pope Francis last weekend. Fariñas called it the “selfie of my life.” Reacting to the photo, a netizen said, “Inggit si ako. Suwerte si ikaw.” [If you don’t get this, do some research.]

The government announced that both public and private employees would get a free MRT/LRT ride on May 1. That’s how the government observes Labor Day – giving a free ride to employees on a non-working, rest day. Salamat naman!

Businessman Cedric Lee and mixed martial artist Simeon Palma aka Zimmer Raz were arraigned Wednesday on the illegal detention case filed by Vhong Navarro. Earlier, Raz complained that he and Cedric were being “demonized.” To which, the demon said, “Excuse me! Mas grabe naman kayo ‘no!?”

NBA News
The owner of the LA Clippers, Donald Sterling was banned for life by the NBA over his racist statements. Sterling is now 80. He has a girlfriend more than half his age. The girlfriend is being blamed for his misery. If he’s Filipino, he could be the next Senate Minority Floor Leader.

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has signed a law that allows men to marry as many women as they want. When Bong Revilla heard this, he said, “Paano pumunta sa Kenya?”

Kris, Again
According to ABS-CBN News.Com, Kris Aquino is entertaining a new suitor. Rumors say the new suitor is tall, good-looking, and masochistic.

SOUTH KOREAN Prime Minister Chung Hong-Won has resigned over the sinking of a ferry that left 302 people dead or missing. For failing to “respond quickly and efficiently” to the crisis, Mr. Chung apologized just two weeks after the tragedy. Or in the words of President Aquino, “Too early.”

South Korean Prime Minister Chung Hong-Won took full responsibility for the recent ferry disaster, apologized, and resigned. If Chung was Filipino, he’ll deny responsibility, blast his critics, and blame the previous administration.

Criticized by angry Koreans, Prime Minister Chung Hong-Won apologized and then, tendered his resignation. And Jinggoy Estrada was like, “Pwede pala ‘yon?”

Janet Lim-Napoles underwent surgery last week. According to doctors, she’s recovering real fast. But her lawyer says she’ll probably stay in the hospital for three more weeks – or until such time as another organ gets fckd up and a surgery becomes necessary. #paraparaan

The Wack Wack Golf and Country Club suspended the membership of DILG Sec. Mar Roxas for two months for “failing to maintain good order at all times.” Earlier reports say Roxas lost his cool and cursed at club employees. He was harshly criticized for cursing. This morning, Roxas vowed not to do that again – in Wack Wack.

Joint Press Con
On the issue of territorial disputes in the Pacific, US President Barack Obama reminded everyone, “Our goal is to make sure international rules are respected.” To which Beijing replied, “Our goal is to remind you that the US owes us more than a trillion dollars. Tse!”

The US President believes intimidation is not the right way to manage disputes. And in an awkward moment during the press con, he added, “I hope you get that Mar Roxas and Junjun Binay.

Vice President Jejomar Binay and DILG Sec. Mar Roxas were among those who welcomed US President Barack Obama at the airport. Binay and Roxas got the surprise of their lives when Obama told them, “Two ambitious men standing before me but I have only one photo in my hand, and this photo represents the person who will still be in the running towards becoming the Philippines’ next top leader.” Obama did not reveal who his choice was.

1Cedric Lee
Authorities nabbed fugitive businessman Cedric Lee and a companion in Samar Province last Saturday where they were hiding. But Cedric maintained he didn’t hide and he wasn’t arrested; he voluntarily turned himself in. This guy should try showbiz. He’s got a knack for comedy.

Influential businessman Cedric Lee was arrested in Samar. The head of the arresting team is praying he won’t get sacked from his post.

REHABILITATION CZAR and former senator Panfilo Lacson says pork barrel queen Janet Lim-Napoles has linked more than a hundred government officials from both current and previous administrations to the multibillion peso pork barrel scam. Business analysts predict a looming shortage of wheelchairs.

Suspected pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles underwent surgery last Wednesday, April 23. Ten doctors operated on her. The surgery was hailed a success. After the operation, Napoles was seen smiling on her way to the recovery room. The doctors were seen laughing all the way to the bank.

It was a successful surgery. The doctors removed Janet Napoles’s entire uterus and two ovaries. Napoles was happy. But the uterus and the ovaries were happier.

Reports say a total of 10 doctors – 7 from St. Luke’s and 3 from Ospital ng Makati performed the surgery on Janet Lim-Napoles. After the surgery, the doctors told Napoles, “Good luck on your recovery.” To which Napoles replied, “Good luck on the BIR.”

In one week, Janet Lim-Napoles is expected to be fully recovered. I’m not sure about her loot though.

Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada has apologized to Hong Kong for the unfortunate hostage incident in Manila. Filipinos are looking forward to his apology for the unfortunate incident that was Jinggoy Estrada.

Rumors say Senator Enrile’s Facebook wall was deluged with birthday greetings last Tuesday. That left him wondering since he was born in February. And then Enrile realized, it was Earth Day.

Kris and Herbert
Kris Aquino is sporting a pixie haircut which reportedly symbolizes a change in her life. The TV host was quoted to have said, “It was the shortest I’ve had since childbirth.” It wasn’t clear though if she’s still talking about the haircut or the boyfriend.

Kris Aquino recently posted Instagram photos pertaining to her rumored boyfriend Herbert Bautista. Remember when Kris made a promise on ‘Aquino&Abunda Tonight’ that she won’t talk about Herbert again? Me neither.

Entertainment editor Ricky Lo says Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista has given up on Kris Aquino. In his defense, he wasn’t the first.

FIRST & EXCLUSIVE! An interview with Kris Aquino’s new haircut

Ano ang feeling na bago ang hitsura mo?

Bongga! Grabe ang init ngayon ‘di ba? So thankful ako kay Ma’am Krissy na nagpagupit siya!

Bakit ba talaga nagpagupit ang iyong amo?

I’m not sure. Baka gusto lang niyang mag-trend aha-ha-ha! Aminin n’yo… pinag-uusapan pa rin s’ya hanggang ngayon. Winner ‘di ba?


Dapat kasi magpapagupit siya before Holy Week. Kaya lang, busy ang mga tao, ‘tapos special programming pa ang ABS-CBN. So sayang naman ang new haircut kung ‘di naman makikita agad nationwide ‘di ba? ‘Di ba!!!?? Sumagot ka! ‘Di ba?!

Sige na nga! And then…

And then, binalak din ni Ma’am Krissy na April 22 siya magpagupit para saktong Earth Day. Eh noong Black Saturday, biglang surface ang lola Gigi Reyes n’yo. Kaloka ‘di ba? Mang-aagaw pa ng eksena. So sabi ni Ma’am Krissy, “Hay naku Boy. Go na talaga. Magpapagupit na talaga ako bukas, Easter Sunday para maloka ang viewers ng A&A sa Monday .” So ‘yon, natuloy rin sa wakas.

So, happy naman ang amo mo sa feedback?

That Monday night, oo! Kasi nga trending ako sa social media ‘di ba? Ang lakas ko raw maka-Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, UP Pep Squad, at Doris Bigornia. Pero ang ‘di ko kinaya, ‘yong sabi ni Lourd De Veyra na kamukha ko si Cynthia Luster! Ang luma ng peg huh! Lunes pa lang, #throwbackthursday na?!

At least nag-trend ka.

Ito na nga ang ikinakainis ni Ma’am Krissy. Wala pang 24 hours ang lumilipas, umeksena naman ang Janet Napoles! May tell-all daw tungkol sa pork barrel scam. Hellllllo! Moment ko ‘to ‘di ba? ‘Wag KJ! So nabaling ang atensyon sa babaeng nangangailangan ng nose lift kanya.

What happened next?

Sakto! Nasa taping ng KrissyTV ang amo ko noong Tuesday. Sobrang init ng paligid. Wala siyang masyadong tulog the previous night. Suddenly, before mag-take… tsuk! Hinimatay si Ma’am Krissy. So takbo kami ng hospital. Kaloka. Hindi man lang ako sinuklay ni Darla. Pagdating sa Makati Med… nganga ang mga nurses and doctors nang makita ako at si Ma’am Krissy. Sabi ng bading na kumuha ng BP, “Cynthia Luster nga!” Aha-ha-ha Nakakaloka! ‘Buti ‘di narinig ni Ma’am Krissy. Or else…

So buntis nga ba ang presidential sister?

Hindi ‘noh! I should know. Kasama ko siya lagi. And to be fair to Ma’am Krissy… hindi pa niya isinusuko ang Bataan. Tarlac pa lang. Aha-ha-ha!

Siguro pag-uusapan pa rin ang pregnancy issue sa mga susunod na araw.

Ewan ko. ‘Yan kasing Ping Lacson, umeeksena rin. Ang daming blind items. Tsismoso ang pota. Ba’t kasi ayaw pa niyang pangalanan ang mga hinayupak na magnanakaw na ‘yan nang matigil na. Kabado tuloy sina senador L, G, F, T, R, C, L, atbp.

Sino naman sina L, G, F, T, R, C, L,?

Mag-research ka. Naimbento na ang Google. ‘Wag kang tamad.

Ok. Last, paglilinaw lang: break na ba ang amo mo at si Mayor Herbert?

Nooooooooo. They’re very much in love. Ako ang buhok niya. Alam ko ang nasa takbo ng utak ni Ma’am Krissy. Believe me.

Thanks for the info. Last question, kung magiging buhok ka ni Pangulong Aquino… anong gupit ang gusto mo?

Eh kung ikaw na lang kaya ang maging buhok niya?

‘To naman! Masyadong choosy. Sige. Buhok ni Pangulong Aquino o buhok ni Secretary Butch Abad?

Death! Aha-ha-ha! Cynthia Luster forever!

“Dahil whatever we have in the past, I still believe na Secretary De Lima is the right person na in-approach niya because no-nonsense at saka more or less na hindi isa-sanitize ang information na ibibigay.”
~Panfilo Lacson on Janet Napoles’s decision to talk to DOJ Sec. Leila De Lima

Poll Results
Sang-ayon ka ba sa mungkahi ni Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago na maging state witness si Gigi Reyes?

HELL, NO! Pare-pareho lang sila! Burn them. 51.03%
WHY NOT? Basta sabihin niyang lahat ang kanyang nalalaman sa PDAF scam. 47.42%
Mga judgmental! Wala siyang kasalanan. Nagamit lang siya ni Enrile! 1.55%

Enjoy the rest of the week!

JESSICA LUCILA ‘GIGI’ REYES is back in the country. Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile’s former chief of staff and rumored paramour who was recently indicted for plunder in connection with the pork barrel scam arrived before dawn Saturday. In a brief statement released this morning, Senator Enrile said, “Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof. Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth.”

Gigi Reyes told GMA News she’s “ready to face” the plunder charges. Right now, she has two options: state witness or stay in love.

Only GMA News was at the NAIA when Gigi Reyes arrived. The news crew was asking too many questions. But Reyes kept her cool and answered the questions juan at a time.

On Saturday morning, Gigi Reyes returned, unannounced. No escorts, no drama, no fanfare, and surprisingly, no wheelchair.

A month after the PDAF scandal broke out, Gigi Reyes left the country. That was almost eight months ago. No one knows where she’s been. She could have been to the US or Canada. Or maybe in the Cayman Islands, the Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands or Zurich. We don’t know.

Lawyer Gigi Reyes arrived on Black Saturday. Senator Enrile was overheard saying, “She puts the ‘gloria’ in Sabado de Gloria.”

Gigi Reyes returned to Manila before dawn Saturday. Her brother Patrick says Senator Enrile was not told of her arrival. To which, ABS-CBN News and TV5 said, “Kami rin!”

New Hampshire lawmakers recently voted to make adultery legal in the state. In totally unrelated news, Senator Enrile denied reports he’s spending his retirement years in New Hampshire.

Jinggoy’s Prayers
During the Holy Week break, Jinggoy Estrada reportedly prayed to God that his detractors be enlightened. In response, God ordered Jinggoy to enlighten Him first on what happened to the 230 million-peso pork barrel fund released to his office.

marOh Mar!
Last week, the Philippine Star reported that DILG Sec. Mar Roxas blew his top and shouted at the staff of the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club who insisted that he pay some fees. Roxas was quoted to have said, “’Tang-i*@! Kailan pa nagkaroon ng ganyang rules!?! ’Tang-i*@! Walang bawal-bawal sa akin!” To be fair, Roxas has apologized. Apparently, the incident taught him some valuable lessons. It taught him how to be patient, how to be understanding, and how to ruin his chances of winning the presidency in 2016.

Sec. Mar Roxas clarified that his strong words were not directed at anyone. He has since apologized for what happened and called it an “unfortunate incident.” Or as ‘Ayala Avenue’ would say, “a #throwbackmoment.”

DILG Sec. Mar Roxas reportedly lost his cool when he was told to pay some fees at the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club last April 6. For Roxas, it was an “unfortunate incident.” For Vice President Binay, it was an early Christmas gift.

When the staff of the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club insisted that he pay some fees, DILG Sec. Mar Roxas reportedly uttered, “’Tang-i*@! Kailan pa nagkaroon ng ganyang rules!?! ’Tang-i*@! Walang bawal-bawal sa akin!” Shocked, the Wack Wack staff allegedly replied, “’Tang-i*@! Nag-ju-juice diet ka rin ba?!”

Easter Message
In his Easter Sunday message, Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Tagle prayed for true peace. He asked God for peace in communities ravaged by earthquakes, typhoons and armed conflicts. He also prayed for peace in our hearts, homes, institutions, and golf courses.

Meteor Shower
From the evening of Monday (April 21) to predawn of April 22, a meteor shower will light up Philippine skies. Astronomers say dozens of so-called ‘falling stars’ will be visible in the sky. So expect to see Jinggoy, Bong, and probably, Mar Roxas.

“I’m facing the charges. I’ve always faced it.”
~Gigi Reyes

“If there is something wrong in what I did, I sincerely apologize for hurting someone. There was a misunderstanding on my part, for which I apologize. I direct my apology to the Wack Wack family.”
~DILG Sec. Mar Roxas

Poll Results
Sa Metro Manila, ano ang madalas mong sakyan?

Train (MRT/LRT) 24.89%
Sariling sasakyan 24.45%
Jeep 22.27%
Bus 19.65%

Have a great week ahead!

FORMER SENATOR Panfilo Lacson’s wife Alice had a horrifying experience in Manila recently. Just seconds after alighting from her parked car, robbers snatched one of her diamond-studded gold earrings. She is ok now. It was not the first time Mrs. Lacson came face-to-face with thieves. She used to visit the Senate remember?

Former senator Panfilo Lacson’s wife Alice was victimized by a bunch of thieves in Manila. At least three suspects have been identified. The thieves claimed innocence and vowed to defend themselves in separate privilege speeches.

After receiving complaints from travelers, President Aquino apologized for the busted air conditioning system at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport – one of the world’s worst airports. Things are getting worse over there at the NAIA. It was so bad that this morning, Ninoy Aquino appealed that the airport be re-named after someone else.

Due to the flood control project of the Department of Public Works and Highways, 400,000 residents of Metro Manila and Cavite are now experiencing water service cutoff. Those areas will go dry. If it’s any consolation, they now have something in common with the President.

A driver of a sportscar that overtook a presidential convoy last Wednesday was charged with reckless driving. When he was ticketed, Jeffrey Roxas-Chua of Urdaneta Village, Makati City got angry and told a police officer, “Kay Presidente pala kayo huh. Ganyan pala. Humanda ka ‘pag naging presidente si Binay o si Erap. Ipatatanggal kita.” Apparently, Chua was not only driving really fast. He was also packing winds of up to 285 kilometres per hour.

Reports say Manny Pacquiao might see action in the PBA soon. Pacman was quoted to have said he might just play for one of the three newest teams in the league – Kia. Owners of other teams are reportedly cool with the idea as long as the PBA imposes a ban on Mommy Dionisia.

In his Holy Week message, President Aquino said, “As followers of Jesus, Filipinos must always be ready to make their own sacrifices.” And MRT riders were like, “You have no freakin’ idea.”

Seven Last Modern Words

“Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they’re doing.”

“I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
– Juan Ponce Enrile on the phone with Gigi Reyes

“Dear woman, here is your son.”
– God explaining ‘things’ to Raquel Pempengco

“My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”
– MRT Rider

“I am thirsty.”
– Anne Curtis

“It is finished!”
– Jejomar Binay to 2016 rivals

“Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands!”
– Erap holding a glass of Petrus wine while praying

Scientists say an authentic papyrus fragment found in ancient Egypt suggests Jesus was married. In the said document, Jesus mentioned the words “my wife” while talking to his disciples. A number of people are questioning its authenticity though. In the interest of fair reporting, we will get the side of the person who took the minutes of that meeting.

In Brgy. San Pedro Cutud, City of San Fernando, Pampanga, 53-year-old signboard maker, Ruben Enaje was crucified for the 28th time as he portrayed the role of Jesus in the traditional staging of a play called Via Crucis. Tourists and residents applauded Enaje for his record-setting feat. He totally nailed it!

“Humihingi tayo ng paumanhin at pasensya pero talagang sa higpit ng mga patakaran sa gobyerno… hindi ka naman puwedeng umorder ngayon (ng air-con units) at deliver within 30 days.”
