8 April Fool’s Day
Gags for Politicians
We here at the 8List aren’t in the mood to play any gags on our readership (or are we?)—but we like the idea of April Fool’s Day, in principle.
How about we play these pranks on the people who deserve it, like the people who are asking for our votes this coming May? Just imagine the possibilities…
8. Chiz Escudero: It was all a dream.
Imagine gaslighting Chiz Escudero into believing he is President of the Philippines. Then imagine how he would feel if you gaslighted him to believe that it was all a dream. Derren Brown does stuff like this all the time. Not exactly difficult to pull off.
7. Grace Poe on Maury?
Nothing says it better than the most awkward family reunion ever, once Grace Poe is suddenly reunited with her real dad—the late Dolphy!
6. Alan Peter Cayetano’s last stand.
What if Makati officially gained BGC on April 1? How would the vice-presidentiable respond? Would he go on the warpath like he has never gone before? Inquiring minds would like to know!
5. Rody Duterte and the endless swarm of kittens.
Pictured: the most ruthless being known to man…and Presidential candidate Rody Duterte.
Have you ever imagined Duterte in a photo-op looking as harmless as possible? Well, this idea might work!
