Being Filipinos, we turn anything into a light hearted funny situation: one minute it’s an innocent post, the next it’s a viral meme that would get everyone laughing. Recently, we’re provided with a reliable and steady source for these guilty pleasures – the local news. The broadcasts are just full of facepalm-inducing mistakes committed by newscasters and eyerolling soundbites from criminals that Pinoys can’t resist making great memes out of it all.
You’ve read the first 8 criminals who got the ball rolling, now check out these 8 more who took their weirdness to the airwaves.

This guy got pulled over by the MMDA for dropping off his passenger in the wrong area. The driver wouldn’t accept the ticket and kept telling the officers to give it to his boss. And in front of the officers, the media, and now the internet, he reveled who his boss is: “’Edi si Lord Jesus.”
Bawal ang Sad dapat Happy lang 😂

This guy was brought into custody for beating somebody up; he was apparently still high on whatever drug he was taking. The reporters asked him why he was so happy in spite of the situation, he cheerfully said “Wala lang po yun lang po turo ng nanay ko, kailangan happy!” I wish we all had your optimism! Or your mom’s unconditional love for you.
A man with a demon hand
Edwardo Valencio is in jail for molesting two girls while in a public vehicle. The girls told police officers that he tried to touch their legs and chest but in his defense he said: ”Tulog po ako. Siguro umiral siguro yung kademonyohan ng aking kamay, gumalaw.” Maybe he has a career in politics. Particularly, the Senate.
Sumbungan ng Hatdog!
Mike Enriquez rarely makes a mistake when he’s reporting and when he does, it’s mostly coughing on air followed by his famous “Excuse me po!” This recent mistake aired early in 2018 quickly made rounds on the internet and until now well into the year, it remains one of the favorite reporting mistakes. Was somebody in the crew eating a hotdog or was Mike really that hungry?
“Zero ako dun eh.”
Name that subject. “Zero ako dun e.”

If only we have the positivity level of this student here, we could brave anything life throws at us. For a guy who wants to cry in a corner because he got a zero presumably in an exam, he sure is chirpy! Netizens were quick to apply his statement to other areas in life, for example, if a friend asks you how your love life is going, you can reply “Naiiyak na ako sa isang tabi kasi wala akong ano eh, zero ako dun eh.”
In a monologue that creeped the crap out of Kara David, Gadon (“Mga bobo!”), explained the lengths he was willing to go to eliminate stubborn and rebellious citizens of the country. The video altered his voice making him sound like a regular GMA 7 Teleserye victim. The video was posted back in 2017 but Gadon being in the limelight multiple times since for his “Mga bobo” stint and the Gloria Arroyo love team, the video resurfaced.
Mang Tani trying to suppress his laughter
There’s nothing that will make you laugh more than trying to suppress your laughter. Mang Tani mistakenly calls Jun Veneracion as ‘Josie’ which is the name of the storm he’s reporting about. Ever the professional, he tries to continue reporting with a straight face but with a quivering voice that made all of us lose it in laughter.
baka bukas o sa makalawa .

Due to a campaign, authorities rescued this barker who is part of a group of people living in the streets of Quezon City. Unfortunately he tested positive for shabu usage and was detained. Reporters then asked him when he plans on changing his lifestyle to which he hilariously replied, “Magbabago po ako pero hindi pa po sa ngayon. Baka bukas o sa makalawa.” Procrastination is bad, kids! (But same, kuya, same.)
