I would say in advance that this post has nothing to do with the defunct youth-oriented variety TV show with that title, that was hosted by the late German Moreno, aired in the 80’s – 90’s.
But that’s entertainment!
No, not that show. I was pertaining to the current best entertainment in the Philippines.
Who could guess that this will be more fun that any TV show, tele-serye, or even kalye-serye? I can say that we Filipinos can only provide this level of showmanship.
There’s drama, action, and fiction – all rolled into one. Maybe next time they will add some musical as well. Oh I forgot, there’s already that. Remember, may “kumakanta,” di ba?
But before you surf crazy the entire TV channels searching for it, or go into expedition to the movie theaters or broadways, I was just alluding to the Philippine senate proceedings.
Best entertainment ever. And this is “real” life.
Witness: Pinagbabaril na po naming yung lalaki, pero buhay pa.
Senator: Ilan kayong bumaril?
Witness: Marami po kami, nasa 30.
Senator: 30 kayong bumaril, pero buhay pa? Ano nga ulit pangalan ng pinagbabaril ninyo?
Witness: Si Neo po, your honor. (*Matrix movie soundtrack plays in the background*)
Ghost of FPJ interrupts: Pinuno mo na ang salop. Isang bala ka lang!
I’m looking forward for more of this entertainment. Though I think it will become more fascinating, when the House will soon have their own “show.”
As our slogan says, “It’s more fun in the Philippines.”
I would like to end with a Filipino proverb:
Batobato sa langit, tamaan huwag magalit.
Or the new version:
Matobato sa langit, hindi matamaan kaya nagalit.
