Puckering Time

It's now or never.
 

Odious omnipresence

An apocalyptic event has just happened: Manny Pacquiao on Deal or No Deal.

I saw the trailer last night for the show and the cut itself provoked much chattering of teeth and stamping of foot on my part. I see him in almost every angle my head can possibly turn and it's almost like a gagging reflex. The funniest ad I saw with him on screen is for Magic Sing. He cavorts like an earthworm with a spinal column, and his voice is bad. I may not qualify as an American Idol champion, much less to pass the auditions, but I'm confident with my talent. There is some comfort in knowing the difference between which is healthy for the ears and which is an impression of a chainsaw. I know there are ardent fans of the boxing "legend" (whatever that means to them) who are ready for some gruesome bloodshed and decapitation in the event they accidentally entered - and read - this post. The hell I care. Ha.

And as for my previous prophetic forecast I think it will soon come to pass. Call me an irresponsible citizen, but I feel more secured in the knowledge that I wasn't able to register for the 2007 elections. Like, who shall I vote for (position)? Is there anyone credible enough to run the country, to improve our dwindling economy without relying on dollar remittances of the so-called Super Pinoys, i.e. the OFWs? Is there anyone who can totally vanquish graft and corruption from the system? Or is there a system that could totally vanquish corrupt officials, in which case everyone in the national and local government units? (Don't dare inform me about federalism.) Or to put it succinctly, do we still have to cast our votes on some candidate who would probably win even if only 0.000001% of the whole population voted for him/her?

Pacquiao for President, anyone? If somebody says Yes I hope he's just kidding. In the event he runs for the position and wins (which is highly likely because we are in the Philippines where we let government officials win just because they are a) popular or b) they are from the entertainment industry), picture yourself as a character in Final Destination 3.
