WORDS

28 02 2016

1PD

BASED ON  the transcript of Pilipinas Debates 2016, the most mentioned word during the debate was “problema.” Unfortunately, no one mentioned “solution.”

Phrases
According to the transcript of Pilipinas Debates 2016, the most uttered word during the debate was “problema.” While the most uttered phrase by televiewers was “Yeah right.”

Upset
Vice President Binay is not happy with some of the questions asked during the recent Pilipinas Debates 2016. Expecting to be grilled on his track record, Binay was instead asked something about his real estate properties. Which, in defense of GMA Network, still highlighted Binay’s track record – in amassing wealth.

Commercials
Likewise, the Vice President complained about the long commercial breaks. Which would have been, in fact, a lot shorter if Binay and his fellow candidates did not buy spots for their political ads.

Ooops!
Imelda Marcos attended a morning mass last Wednesday which, unknown to her was intended for the victims of the Marcos regime. Mrs. Marcos realized she was at the “wrong” mass when attendees began staring at her as they sang, “Kunin mo o Diyos at tanggapin mo…”

Political Parties
Senatorial candidate Panfilo Lacson is pushing for the return of the two-party system in the country – – totally surprising millennials who thought the two-party system already existed: the Sinungaling and the Magnanakaw parties.

Jobs
Presidential candidate Mar Roxas vows to generate 1 million jobs yearly if elected. In fact, he can create jobs as early as now. Stuck in 3rd or 4th place in the latest surveys, he would need additional people to work for his campaign.

Burial
During a campaign sortie in the vote-rich city of Tacloban, presidential candidate Grace Poe told the media she was open to the idea of allowing the burial of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani. But Poe clarified she wasn’t politicking. She was just speaking as a daughter orphaned by her estranged father.

1lsbFrozen
Lip Sync Battle Philippines had its pilot episode on GMA 7 last Saturday. To open the show, host Michael V channeled the character Elsa and lip-sync’d to the hit song ‘Let It Go’ from the animated film ‘Frozen’ which tells the story of a late dictator who was repeatedly denied a hero’s burial.

Buttons
Facebook has added reaction buttons in addition to the original ‘like’ button. These are ‘haha,’ ‘wow,’ ‘love,’ ‘angry,’ and ‘sad.’ Or as that’s collectively called, ‘the five stages of falling in love.’

Sound Bites
“Umpisa pa lang ang sabi, ang pag-uusapan natin, track record. Aba, ang itinanong naman sa akin ay lupa kong namana at ang lupa kong nabili.”
~Vice President Binay hitting the organizers of Pilipinas Debates 2016
