UP’s Best
Math major John Gabriel Pelias of UP Diliman who is graduating summa cum laude this weekend has a general weighted average (GWA) of 1.016. According to close friends, John Gabriel is very studious but not geeky. He comes from a poor family, hates smoking, and doesn’t fool around with girls. Sorry John, you cannot be president.

UP’s valedictorian this year, John Gabriel Pelias has a general weighted average of 1.016. When Erap heard this, he said, “Whaaat?! Weighted average of 1.016?!? Grabe naman! Ano ‘yon? Kilos o pounds?”

John Gabriel’s GWA of 1.016 eclipsed the highest post-war GWA held since 1948 by professor emeritus Emerenciana Yuvienco Arcellana. A friend from college said, had she known there was a record to beat, she would have aimed for it.


Not True
Reacting to rumors that President Aquino is smitten with Singapore-based reporter Sabrina Chua, presidential spokesperson and Bb. Pilipinas 2011 pageant judge Edwin Lacierda insists, “There’s no truth to that!” To which, Sabrina Chua said, “Gee, thanks!”

Extemporaneous
During Monday’s Student Catholic Action of the Philippines national leaders’ conference, President Aquino talked extemporaneously after ditching a prepared speech saying, “I did not like the speech prepared for me.” Asked why, he replied, “the speech sucks.”

Missing Ecleo
Graft convict, murder suspect, and Dinagat, Surigao del Norte Rep. Ruben Ecleo has reportedly gone into hiding. You know what that means? A year from now, another lawmaker will be demonstrating his cooking skills on TV!

Jobs Fair
The Labor Department is organizing a jobs fair on May 1, Labor Day. This is a piece of good news for working students, fresh graduates, and deputy ombudsmen.

NDF and Facebook
The National Democratic Front says the local Communist movement is using Facebook as a tool to promote their revolution. In fact, in the NDF’s Like Page, the farmers in Farmville are all members of the Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas.

Bb. Pilipinas 2011
Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda was one of the judges in the recently concluded Bb. Pilipinas 2011 pageant. During the Q&A portion, he said, “You ladies are making life difficult for the judges.” And one candidate was like, “Ah, forget it! We’re nothing compared to your government who is making life difficult for all of us.”

Experience me on Twitter. Don’t worry. I don’t post spoilers and factually erroneous tweets. I only tweet insanity. Follow me at your own risk.

IKAW NA NGA!

“NITONG MGA NAKARAANG ARAW, marami pong tumitira sa akin lalo na sa Twitter. Nanahimik lang ako. Pero hindi ko na talaga kaya ang ginagawa nila sa akin. Sina Aiza Seguerra, Lea Salonga, Jim Paredes, Agot Isidro, Bianca Gonzales, K Brosas, Tuesday Vargas, Mylene Dizon, Thia Megia, Maria Aragon at ang buong Talent Center ng ABS-CBN… lahat sila nakikisawsaw po sa isyu! Bakit? Ano ba ang nagawa n’yo para sa sambayanang Pilipino? Ano ba ang naitulong n’yo sa ating mga kababayan?

Subukan n’yong lumabas sa gate at mamigay ng pera sa mahihirap, sa special children, sa matatanda, at sa mga nangangailangan! ‘Yan ang dapat n’yong gawin, hindi ‘yong tira kayo nang tira, at Twitter kayo nang Twitter, mga walang career!

Ikaw Jim Paredes, matagal mo na akong tinitira. Sa Friendster pa lang tinitira mo na ako. Get elected first as barangay captain, then let’s talk. Ikaw naman Lea Salonga, Ingles ka nang Ingles! Akala mo ba ‘di ko naiintindihan ang mga tweets mo!? Nagkakamali ka! Dalawa ang dictionary ko sa bahay! At ikaw Tuesday Vargas! Kapatid mo ‘ko, huwag mo akong tirahin. For your information, sa aking show galing ang ipinapasuweldo sa ‘yo! And you, Aiza Seguerra! Hindi ka magkakaanak, tandaan mo ‘yan! Pagdating ng panahon, mauunawaan mo ako! And finally, ikaw Maria Aragon, ‘di ba exploitation ang ginagawa sa ‘yo? Kumakanta kang kasama si Lady Gaga na nakapanty at nakabra lang! Sino ngayon ang nang-aabuso?

‘Yang DSWD at Commission on Human Rights, hinusgahan agad nila ako! Napakaraming dapat asikasuhin pero ako ang tanging nakita nila. Ikaw Secretary Soliman, maraming street children sa streets! Unahin mo sila! At ‘yang highlights mo, ‘di na uso ‘yan!

Sa Human Rights commissioner, maraming OFWs po ang nakakulong! Asikasuhin n’yo muna ang mga kababayan nating tulad ni Ronald Singson bago n’yo ‘ko tirahin!

Pinag-iinitan n’yo ba ako dahil si Vetellano Acosta ang sinuportahan ko noong eleksyon? I will stick with him dahil amusing siya!

Kayong lahat na tumira sa akin, hahanapin ko ang mga tweets n’yo! Kahit wala akong Twitter, hahanapin ko pa rin! Idi-demanda ko kayo! Humanda kayo! Idi-demanda ko kayo!

Aaminin ko, ilang advertisers na rin ang nag-pull out ng kanilang commercials. Masakit po ang ginawa nila. ‘Yang Mang Inasal na ‘yan, napakasama ng asal! Nang-iiwan sa ere. ‘Yong Procter & Gamble, sobrang personal ng sulat n’yo. Pati hair and make up ko, pinapakialaman n’yo. Wala naman akong hinangad kundi ang magpasaya ah. Hindi po ako nang-abuso o nang-molestya. Nasa edad na ‘yong mga seksing dancers! Pumayag sila! At ‘yong mahigit pitumpung namatay sa Ultra, hindi ko kasalanan ‘yon! Kasalanan ng ABS-CBN ‘yon! Gusto nila ng ratings, ayun, tumaas ang ratings ng newscast nila.

Sa ABS-CBN, alam n’yong totoo ang sinasabi ko! Hindi ako natatakot sa inyong demanda. Marami akong lalabas na witness. Kay Mr. M, Johnny Manahan, salamat sa ‘di mo pagtalikod sa akin. Lipat ka na kasi rito! Tara na!

Kay MVP, you’re the best! Maraming salamat sa iyong suporta. Akala ko noong una, iiwan mo rin ako dahil sa pressure ng Inquirer, ng mga columnists, civil society, at ng mayayamang tao sa Twitter at Facebook. Pero mali ang aking akala. Surprisingly, suportado mo pa rin ako hanggang ngayon. Apir!

Magpapahinga po muna ako sa susunod na dalawang linggo. Dadalhin ko muna ang yate ko sa Boracay. Pag-iisipan ko pa kung babalik ako sa industriyang ito.

Ipagdasal po ninyo na sana ay makabalik ako at ang ating programa dahil kung hindi… sinong mamimigay sa inyo ng pera? Sinong mamumudmod sa inyo ng papremyo? Sinong tutulong sa mahihirap? Sinong magpapasaya sa mga nalulungkot? Sinong magpapakain sa mga nagugutom? Sinong magtatanggol sa mga walang laban? Sino ang pag-asa ng sambayanan?

Ako lang.

Maraming salamat po sa inyong suporta!”


ACCORDING TO PAGASA, summer will officially start this week. No wonder, Mikey Arroyo and Willie Revillame have been feeling the heat.

Willing Willie
Willie Revillame delivered a 25-minute speech Friday night. He blasted his critics and blamed the previous network for his woes and other unfavorable developments. And President Aquino was like, “Sus! Gaya-gaya ka naman eh.”

While some of his sick and poor fanatics shed tears, Willie Revillame announced on television that he’d go on a two-week break. Rosa Rosal can’t wait to get her job back.


TV host Willie Revillame is taking a two-week break from television. TV5 can now remove the “Parental Guidance” sign on the TV screen.

Willie Revillame said if advertisers would continue to abandon his show, he’d seek the help of network president Ray Espinosa and network boss Manny V. Pangilinan, “even if we lose profit.” To which MVP said, “Bawiin mo ‘yan!”

Willie Revillame delivered a 25-minute speech last Friday evening. The opposition described the speech as lacking in substance as it failed to tackle land reform, economic goals, and foreign policy.


Embattled Ombudsmen
The good news: In the wake of complaints and criticisms hurled against him, Deputy Ombudsman Mark Jalandoni has reportedly quit his post. The bad news: He told his supporters that he’s just taking a two-week break “upang pag-isipan kung babalik pa ako sa industriyang ito.”

Two weeks ago, President Aquino fired Deputy Ombudsman Emilio Gonzalez III. Last week, Deputy Ombudsman Mark Jalandoni resigned. These developments have prompted Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez to stay saying, “The captain must not abandon a sinking ship.”

Aquino’s Lovelife
According to a Newsbreak report, President Aquino and stockbroker Len Lopez have stopped dating. Sought for comment, Kris Aquino said, “No reaction.” Palace spokespersons said, “No comment.” Shalani Soledad said, “No surprise!”


MY UNIMPEACHABLE SOURCE IN SINGAPORE has identified Sabrina Chua of Channel News Asia as the new apple of the eye of President Noynoy Aquino. Is this true Mr. President? Good luck then.


Hungry Filipinos
The latest Social Weather Stations survey showed that 51 percent of Filipinos considered themselves poor. The rest were in denial.

Modernong Talasalitaan
Makabagong kahulugan ng mga salita, parirala o pangungusap batay sa mga kaganapan sa ating kapaligiran. Ang kahulugan ay maaaring madagdagan, mabawasan, o maiba depende sa mga susunod na pangyayari.

1. Political harassment: Kapag ‘di ka nakabayad ng tamang buwis sa pamahalaan
Halimbawa: “Uy Congressman! Totoo bang kinasuhan ka ng tax evasion?”
“Nooo! Hindi tax evasion ‘yon! Political harassment ‘yon!”

2. “I invoke my right against self incrimination.”
: Guilty as hell. Nagsisinungaling. Nagpapalusot.
Halimbawa: “General, ikaw ba ang last na gumamit ng CR na hindi nag-flush?” “Your honor, I would like to invoke my right against self incrimination.”

3. Reseta: Nauusong instrumento upang makontrol ang pagbebenta at pamamahagi ng kahit ano na lang. Wala lang. Trip lang.
Halimbawa: “Ale, pabili nga ng load.” “Load? Kuha ka muna ng reseta.”
