The clowning

I've always wondered why the Filipino masses have this constant nagging need to see the most popular personalities in the society look like fools. It's bad enough that our showbiz reporters for radio sound like dumb little illiterate escapees from the mental asylum, constantly yelling "odiba?" every single phrase or so, and calling every single male "Papa" before their names, as if it were a title like "Attorney" or "Professor," and referring to themselves as "ang lola moh." But to have actual news anchors dress up like misplaced adolescents and sign and dance like your regular entrant to yet another badly-done star search is a sign that the society has caved in on itself and is beyond extrication, even by the ever almighty United States government.

Ted and Korina have descended into the abyss.

i wish! if only to be able to say that i am sweet and lovable that people soooo yearn for my company. but as my luck goes, i am bitchy and i have no soul, and people just want to scratch my eyes out, although i believe that i may have an enchanting aura surrounding me.
