In a private school in Quezon City, a teacher got arrested for raping his 13 year old student.

What happened to making sure our children won't be harmed in campuses?


A beautiful young girl brought her ugly old auntie to the clinic.

“We come for an examination,” said the young girl to the doctor.
“Good,” said the doctor, adding “Go behind that curtain and take your clothes off.”
“No, it’s not for me,” said the girl. “It's for my elderly aunt here.”
“Very well… Ma'am, put your tongue out.”


Big investor, Manny V. Pangilinan, is moving to delist Metro Pacific Investment Corporation (MPIC) from the local bourse.

The reason: the price of its stock in the exchange is not correct as it is significantly undervalued.

They offer to buy from stockholders at a price a little better than the current market price to meet regulatory requirements.

But stockholders are crying foul. They charge the price tender in the buy-back is too low.

And millions of funds of government financial institutions are invested in MPIC, who has control over MVP companies active in toll roads and water distribution, among others.

Looks like all along, government funds were being wasted if not losing opportunities to make more.


An elderly farmer-entrepreneur married a very young, 22-year old looker.

A concerned good friend of the farmer, worried about the future of the marriage with his old friend unable to satisfy his new bride, advises him to get a young farm hand, thinking that the young farm hand would probably help out in the bedroom.

A few months later, the friend visits the farmer and asks,

“How’s your new wife?”
‘’She’s pregnant,” answers the old farmer.
“And the hired hand?”
“She’s pregnant also.”


Two cargo ships collide in the area between Bataan and Corregidor. Two died and three are missing from the accident. Of the dead, one is a Filipino seaman.

The smaller of the cargo ships capsized.

This is second in a row of sea accidents that impact on our environment. Nobody is telling of the chemical spill and environmental damage this latest accident in the sea will bring.


My uncle came home from the hospital looking so worried.

Auntie: What’s the matter?

“The doctor said I had to take this medicine everyday for the rest of my life,” uncle said.
“That’s not bad,” said auntie, trying to bring back cheer.
“It is,” replied uncle. “He gave me only 30 tabs.”
