Juan was working with his lolo on the garden, when Juan saw an earthworm trying to get back into its hole.

And “Lolo,” Juan exclaimed, “I bet I can put back that worm in its hole.”

“For P10, you can’t make it,” Lolo tells Juan, explaining that the worm was soft and limp.

Juan runs to the barn, came back with a can of hairspray, used it on the worm until it was stiff. He inserted the worm back into the hole.

Lolo gave Juan P10 and walked straight to the house. One hour later, he got out from the house with a big smile on his face, gave Juan another P10.

Juan: “You already gave me P10, Lolo.
Lolo: “Yes, this one is from your lola.”

Diokno justifies why Development Bank of the Philippines should be merged with Land Bank.

He says, LBP is also into funding infrastructure development in the country. On this score, DBP is redundant, he adds.

So it is confirmed moneys intended to fund farm production go to development of nonfarm projects.

Now we got the reason why farmers had to go to informal lenders that charge killer interest rates like the 5-6 Indians to fund their production.

Given this mindset, why is Diokno trusted to help grow our economy?


A senior citizen stands up from bed and puts on his coat.

His aged wife asks:

“Where to?”

“I’m going to the doctor,” came the answer.

“Why? Are you sick?”

“No, I'm getting a prescription for that blue pills, Viagra, that every aging friend is talking about.”

The wife, then hurriedly climbs from her bed and gets dressed, saying

“I’m going to my doctor, too. Cuz, if you’re going to start using that rusty old thing, I’m going to get a tetanus shot.”
