Good god. I couldn’t believe it when I heard the news that Rufus Rodriguez wanted to pass a bill to prevent Manny Pacquiao from fighting Oscar de la Hoya. But apparently, it’s true. Egads. What a moron this Rufus be.
According to Rodriguez, the bigger de la Hoya would ‘kill’ Pacquiao, and that we had to ‘protect’ Pacquiao because he was a national treasure. So, he’s been leaning on the Games and Amusements Board’s Eric Buhain to cancel Pacquiao’s licence. In a sense, this hulking moron from Cagayan de Oro, wants to throw in the towel before the first bell has even sounded. Sheesh. Someone tell this loser he’s not even in Pacquiao’s corner.
Good god. Paul Newman is dead. One of the first grownup movies I ever watched was Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. I’ve had a crush on Newman ever since. With Butch Cassidy dead, and Rufus Rodriguez still around, i guess the morons now have a crushing numerical superiority over the non-morons.
God god. When we talk of people who’ve never fucked, we call ‘em virgins. But once they lose their virginity, we call them non-virgins. Or not virgins. Methinks there should be a one-word antonym for ‘virgin.’
Some of the candidates that have been suggested so far: Torn (technically accurate for women only, so, I’m not sold); and Used (too politically incorrect). If you have better ideas, don’t be afraid to post ‘em in the comments.
Good god. Tagalized versions of pop songs. Who the eff started this annoying trend. I remember one tagalized song from before – Sumpa Ko – that almost killed me the first time I heard it. I thought the fad had faded, but – as Niki – points out, things seem to have just gotten worse. On the other (perverse) hand, I truly loved the visaya version – Botete!
I mean, if we’re tagalizing to spoof, I really don’t have a problem with that. What really irks me is when the people who make these versions take themselves so fucking seriously that they actually try to pass it off as a real song. Still, I’d love to hear a tagalized version of ‘My Way!’ LOLZ
Good god. This melamine crap is getting out of hand, isn’t it? I mean, with products from China finding their way into nearly everything else all over the world, it’s easy to get paranoid. Seriously, this is like what? the third health-risk issue involving Chinese products? What the hell kind of oversight is operating over there? This is prolly one of the more insidious evils of free-trade. Sure, stuff gets moved around more easily, but so do health-risks like this.
At the very least, if there’s anything good that can come out of this latest clusterfuck, it’s that maybe now, mothers will take a serious second-look at breastfeeding. Jen says breastfeeding is best for babies. I agree.
