Congratulations, you made it to your most favorite day of the week! To kick-start your much-needed rest during the weekend, here is your weekly dose of everything weird, from Pinoy Facebook groups to a rare yellow penguin:
A percent of rain
— OG FullMakup Alchemist (@n0tjasmine) February 22, 2021
In this week’s episode of my-life-is-a-lie or I-just-didn’t-pay-enough-attention-in-school: any percent of rain means it’s going to rain no matter what. All this time, we thought it’s just the likeliness of getting rainfall!

Fans of Dr. Pimple Popper, you probably know how satisfying it is to watch whiteheads and pimples get popped, no matter how disgusting they are. But we hope you won’t think of this video the next time you’re eating noodles.

From rambulan and trash talk to the iconic Subtle Clown Traits, the months of quarantine have given birth to many groups that made our stay at home more fun. But Pinoys have taken it to another level by playing detectives to one of the recent cases that took over the news for weeks. What’s even weirder is someone suggesting a patron saint for flight attendants – what?

Remember that time in 2020 where the world lost its mind over regular items that turn out to be cake? We were so confused we might as well checked if our family members were made of cake. Well, the trend has taken to another level with this ice cream – a juicy and crispy-looking fried chicken that’s, unfortunately, ice cold. Maybe this is just the beginning.
Rare yellow penguin spotted
— New York Post (@nypost) February 19, 2021
It turns out, penguins aren’t just black and white. In December 2019, wildlife photographer Yves Adams captured a photo of a rare yellow penguin during his stay on an island in the southern Atlantic. He was out photographing a colony of 120,000 king penguins when he spotted this rare gem! There are no species of yellow penguins, unfortunately, as this one is just suffering from a pigmentation condition called leucism, which made it stand out in the sea of black and white.
The first woman on Mars

24 Oras has really gone out of this world. Is Mel Tiangco the first woman to walk on Mars? How is she breathing out there without a suit? Kidding aside, GMA must have a loaded budget to make their reporting look even more interesting. Besides, you can make anything happen with a good green screen.
Heads up, Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas, we have a new bill: the singkwenty! Whoever thought of doing this: minus points ka na sa heaven.
Excused from a crime
Mon Tulfo has admitted that he and gov’t officials have received smuggled vaccines from China despite it being unauthorized.
Medical frontliners, which are at the top of the priority list for vaccination, have yet to be vaccinated.

It’s not every day that you hear personalities admitting to a crime without getting reprimanded for it. To make it worse, they explicitly said they aren’t feeling guilty of receiving smuggled goods! Man, the world has gone really weird.
