Hey guys! Sorry for my absence lately. Catching up on life had me busy! But I never forgot ya! And to prove it, here’s a fun bit for you in the land of cheap love and even cheaper brain cells.
I was doing my morning news read when I came across a curious article about a “battleground” between a glimmer of intelligence and the rusty anchor that holds this place back. That’s right. There actually was something intelligent done here in the Philippines, and right away, it’s attacked by the same idiots that cock up every other aspect of the Filipinos lives. You guessed it. The religious nuts crawled out of the woodwork.
So, as I came to learn, there’s been a bit of a ritual around here that actually made sense. The government, though unable to actually enact laws to help stop Filipinos from being poor, would actually give out free condoms on Valentine’s Day….except for this year. In the year that the Pope visited, they decided that they “didn’t want to offend religious officials” by handing out those much needed condoms.
So, a condom manufacturer steps up to the plate with a 40,000 condom giveaway! YES! Corporate marketing to the rescue! And to add a flash of style, they have pretty girls in tight shirts and shorts hand them out at the markets. Please…shut up and take my money! I’ll take two dozen!
But you just can’t have something good around here without the stupidity charging in. Enter the Catholics.
They found out about this upcoming event and went straight to work buying a bunch of candy and printing up material on Jesus and chastity. They then proceeded to stalk the lovely models and anyone they gave a condom to, offering to exchange the condoms for candy. Yep, that’s right. Let’s replace a wise decision with some processed chocolate stupidity.
But, in a show that Filipinos are clever little buggers when it comes to greed, many of the males would take the condom, exchange it for the candy, then go back to a different model and get another condom. I’d say the Filipinas did that as well, but most of them took the condom at first, then gave it back and scurried away like they had done something dirty.
The last part of the article showed yet another side of Filipinos we know all too well. The ones that lie their ass off. I’ll just quote it here:
“I already ate the candies. The condoms, I can’t use it yet because I’m only 16 and I don’t have a girlfriend. Maybe I will keep it in my wallet for good luck,” college student Danny Villegas told AFP.
Yeah, right Danny. Keep telling your family that. Even they don’t believe that you aren’t using every cheesy Bruno Mars line to get those 16 year old girls into bed.Published in
