Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Hey BF, Istatue?

This is a statue near the Marikina Public Market. What’s being depicted, I have no idea. What is the doctor doing to the kid, cleaning up his ass or getting ready to collect a massive amount of his stool sample? (FYI, the kid was sculpted anatomically correct. I checked. Twice.)

This, along with other statues, was erected all over Marikina when BF’ was still mayor. Paging BF, paging BF, what in heaven’s name is this?!

Yikes! I've heard that BF was a neat freak. Maybe the statue is a reminder to Marikinians (is that a word?) to "hugusan ang wetpu" after doing number 2. I'm curious as to what this statue is all about.

JOSH: Go, link lang ng link! :-)

TESSA: I will, but I have no idea how to go about it. Do I just go up to Mayor Marides Fernando and go, "What the hell was your hubby thinking with that?!" AHAHAHAHA!

JOHN: "I've heard that BF was a neat freak." True-laloo at walang halong eklavuh!

But that's not just the reason why Marikina's so clean these days; cleanliness is important to maintain discipline and order in a community.

Still, I wonder... is the statue a re-enactment of BF's childhood? Hmmmmm!

Actually from this angle the kid does look like a young BF, so maybe that childhood thing is correct.
