Signs of the Times

These were borrowed from a German site showing how "progressive" Talisaynons really are...

Uhhh... isn't that a dead given? Where the heck do you think the hands should be? Somewhere else besides the steering wheel I wonder? And the eyes? I don't presume the endless expanse of sugarcane fields provide the distraction, or is it something else?

This one cracks me up. You can bet your hiney that the first ones to land in jail is the driver of their ambulance. Lee Kwan Yew it aint. But if you drive moderately, you can have the best of both worlds: to see the city, then go to jail.

I guess there are elbow snatchers around Talisay city. "Oooh, don't stick it out sonny, 'cuz it's gonna get stolen by the Talisay elbow snatchers!" And how far do the officials think one's elbow will go out of the car? Should it not be "Don't stick your arm out?" So, if its someone's behind that's sticking out of the window, does it mean it will go home in another car?

Filmfest Poem

(A tribute to the ongoing Manila filmest currently being shown in all theaters.)
Oh, Misfortune!
by Julsitos

Oh, what misfortune we have wrought
to see such films in wide array-
bereft of wisdom, lack of thought,
a show of splendor in decay.

Our peoples' souls are penned in blood,
our story fills the thickest book,
and in our tongues the fire of God
breathes in films no maker took.

For such I cannot clap and praise
to watch moronic drivel pass,
These lemons do deserve a place-
deep inside the film-makers ass.
