JANET ‘JENNY’ Lim-Napoles has been “commanded and ordered” to appear before the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee on November 7. She has two more weeks to memorize the line, “Your honor, I would like to invoke my right against self-incrimination.”

The Senate has officially issued a subpoena requiring Janet Lim-Napoles to appear before the Blue Ribbon Committee. Everyone is excited. In fact, Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla have volunteered to sponsor the “Welcome home!” banner.

Reports say the Nov. 7 hearing which will be attended by Janet Napoles shall be free-flowing. Senators will be allowed to use Tita, Ma’am, Mare, Friendsheeep or ‘Teh when they talk to Napoles.

SLAM BOOK. Last year, we started our slam book series. Some of the personalities featured were President Aquino, Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Sen. Lito Lapid, Cong. Manny Pacquiao, and presidential sister Kris Aquino. Today, we’ll get to know more about suspected pork barrel queen, Janet Lim-Napoles. She sent her answers to our questions via email.



Sea Serpent
An 18-foot-long sea serpent was found in Southern California. The rare snakelike fish left residents in awe. But that’s nothing compared to a 23-headed pig found in the Philippine Senate or the 400-legged amphibian found in the Lower House.

“Every single Filipino wants to spit at a senator, including myself, within spitting distance. We’re severely damaged.”
~ Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago
