Salamat Sa Kuwento

Surreal would be best word to describe Philippine Political news last Monday. A privileged speech capped with a music video courtesy of Senator Bong Revilla. News of an alleged sex video tape that would appeal to a very niche market south of Pluto. It is no surprise that the online echo chamberof the twitter sphere and facebook was inundated with opinions from the amused, the disgusted, politicos, spinmeisters, fellow travelers, intellectuals, and basically representatives from all factions of the elite.

Salamat sa kuwento.

Nearly every Juan and Juana who saw it reacted. Well at the moment it is one of the shows of interest in the country part of the PDAF and Napoles saga. Often though i find the offline comments nearly the same and sometimes more interesting than those from the twitterslovakia.

Here are some offline statements heard while crossing one end of the Metro to the other:

Ang talino talaga ni Enrile kahit matanda na.

Nakakahiya
Dinamay pa ni Bong ang Diyos.
Malayo sa Tatay, Matino yung Tatay
PDAF? Napoles? Katarungan? Isang lang sagot ko diyan AMPATUAN MASSACRE!
Pagnagiba na Presidente laya mga iyan.
Mayaman na hindi pa nakuntento
Pera natin yan
Kahit matanda yan dapat ma kulong
House arrest? Dapat City Jail!
Walang makukulong diyan
Anong forgive forgive …
Magkakampi yung mga yan
Tinraydor niyan si Marcos, Tinraydor niyan si Cory at Tinraydor Tayo
Makakakapal ang mukha
Mga Walang Hiya

As i said more interesting.

Salamat sa Kuwento.

In one conversation it ended with a poignant statement, which is definitely more insightful than any tweet I read from twitter and Facebook.

Salamat sa Kuwento
Hanggan Kuwento lang Tayo

Hanggan Kuwento lang Tayo
Hanggan Kuwento lang Tayo
Hanggan Kuwento lang Tayo
Hanggan Kuwento lang Tayo
Hanggan Kuwento lang Tayo
Hanggan Kuwento lang Tayo
Hanggan Kuwento lang Tayo
