So much Imbecility

is exhausting. Wanda Teo’s tourism charts. Bilibid boys threatening to recant. Alvarez’ wife saying he became a Manobo. Certainly he was always a bobo.

Ngayon naman, may isang Badoy na nagrereklamo tungkol sa mga lumang gamit na pinakinabangan ni Bisepresidente Robredo para sa kanyang anak sa Harvard. Sa bandang huli, si Badoy ang nagmukhang bakya dahil hindi niya yata alam na normal sa US ang makinabang sa […]
