Two kids were comparing fathers. First kid said, “My father can beat your father.”

“Big deal,” said the other, “so can my mother.”


Father brings son to the zoo for educational trip.

Son: “Dad, is it true some animals change their fur every year?”

Dad: “Yes son. But don’t tell your mother that.”


There is a noisy uproar over intelligence funds in government agencies. Sen. Koko Pimentel called on people to show outrage.

What’s wrong with this intelligence funds? They are used by people with low IQ, delivering moronic results.

But at the DepEd, we badly need intelligence funds to up competitiveness of our graduates, left miles behind in the ranking of student competence in Asia and the world. Right, Department of unEducated?


Squabble at the Senate, with veteran Sen. Cynthia Villar almost losing her temper in exchange of fielding questions from neophyte Sen. Raffy Tulfo.

The issue, conversion of farm lands to residential and/or commercial properties, the primary business of the Villar family.

Sometimes, our Senate debates get interesting. And this is one “sometimes” that picked up the senators from disinterest on what other senators are saying.

The media went to town.


I was in Tacloban last week with our editorial consultant Luchie Arguelles and columnist/author Bob Acebedo. It was part of my regular visits to local desks.

The city was busy and hotels fully packed that I missed to stay in my favorite hotel, next to the biggest mall in the city.

In a night coffee with local media guys, talks going around tell of a local chic-boy mayor who just got abandoned by his wife.

The wife announced recently that she is preparing to get back to the stage, being a movie personality before her marriage to the mayor.


We missed to see the bamboo exhibit, said to be the first in the country, in Palo Leyte.

Now bamboo can be modern construction materials and decors like fluted panels on walls of modern homes.

Problem is, Leyte is not known for growing bamboo that soil erosion is almost common. Landslides and floods are not unusual in the province during heavy rains. Bamboo, a grass specie, is known for its use against erosion in river sides.


So, Pres. BBM is serious in pushing use of nuclear energy to light and energize our country, a move that failed to take off at the time of his father, the former dictator.

And it’s a French technology that is leading the pack of interested parties that has won the President’s heart.

And we are supposed to be happy for this will bring to us lower cost of electricity.

This will improve our competitiveness in drawing investors’ interest and better yet, improve families’ disposable income that would up industrial production and commerce.

Bravo, Mr. President.

Hoping this is not like the promise to bring down cost of rice to P20 per kilo. By the way, what happened to this campaign promise?


How can u tell if a blonde works in an office? There is a bed in the inner room of the office of the mayor and a very happy mayor. Right mayor?
