Just when you thought January was about to last an entire 52 weeks, we’re finally in February. YES, what an achievement. It hasn’t been the breeziest start of the year but surely as Pinoys, we won’t have trouble finding the bright side to anything. Catch a breather and a laugh with the weirdest news we’ve seen on our timelines this week!
Our government that really loves Kobe Bryant

NBA Legend Kobe Bryant’s death came as a shock to everyone and we’re most definitely saddened by the news but putting up a Kobe exhibit at the House of Representatives (including mostly Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano’s fan collection) is kind of off-putting, don’t you agree? We have Taal victims to help, a virus to deal with, plus a million other things but by all means, let’s put up this exhibit. Where’s the exhibit for Pinoy athletes, by the way?
In another saga of “The Chinese Living in the Philippines”
🇨🇳 Building artificial islands in the West Philippine Sea
🇨🇳 Peeing on our roads
🇨🇳 Relieving themselves on our tourist spots
🇨🇳 Prostituting our women
🇨🇳 Entering the Philippines amidst the novel coronavirus outbreak
🇨🇳 Hurting a local delivery guy
What is our government doing? https://t.co/e2OJOn7qM6

This video of a Filipino caught in a shouting match with a Chinese woman made rounds last night. Here’s what happened.
A Filipino delivery guy reportedly refused to give the Chinese woman her package because she failed to show him a valid ID, she then proceeded to physically assault him. Enter Twitter user @Eamoto2 (the one in yellow, A.K.A our hero) who bravely (and rightfully so) defended the delivery guy by telling the Chinese woman that in the Philippines, our country, we have laws that need to be followed.
According to Eamoto, after they delivered her to the authorities, the Chinese woman was found to have an expired passport and no working visa. It’s in the government’s hands now and we hope they pay attention to this as much as they paid attention to Bato’s denied US visa.
Cervic? Cervix? Cervical? Cervical cancer?
Can doctor of San Lazaro pls explain how a “male patient” who died could have “cervical lesions” when males have no cervix? Unless of course he is a transgender. 🤔 https://t.co/pRQruGbg6U

We’re just as confused as you are. While we’re definitely not doctors from San Lazaro Hospital or investigative journalists for that matter, we do have the power of Dr. Google to back us up and it has saved us from many would-be blunders. It’s actually cervical spine lesions, or as one netizen explained it, kulani sa leeg.
The more you know, eh?
But you don’t have to act all high and mighty about it, you could’ve easily made the same mistakes. What a rough day for Raisa.
Hey, trolls, before you laugh at me because I asked whether cervical lesions pertained to the cervix and some of you said there is a difference between cervic and cervix, answer me this – why is cancer of the cervix called “cervical cancer”? Yabang nyo.

This LRT door does not take crap from anyone. It does whatever it wants to do and you better not get in the way or you’re traveling to the afterlife with a body cut in half. This LRT door is our spirit animal.
(By the way, this video was taken back in 2016 but recently went viral again thanks to the tweet above.)
DOH giving the best advice
commuting public? we dont know her. https://t.co/cKHHVtz2E7

Everyone is painfully aware of the gravity of the on-going novel coronavirus scare and the best advice our government could give is to tell us to “try” keeping our distance from each other. We’re livid. Crowded MRTs and LRTs, cramped buses and streets filled with people looking for a transportation, and the traffic. Coronavirus? In this economy? In this government? We might as well be as good as dead.

As soon as Senator Cynthia Villar uttered these words, you could literally feel the collective jaw-dropping ft. eye-rolling of the people in the room:
We’re speechless, really. It’s a good thing Twitter user @thenerdyderma already eloquently spoke what we can’t put into words because maybe we’re “stupid.”
PLEASE CLOSE YOUR MOUTH, YOU ATROCIOUS POX!
