Wanted: A Pair
Y’all know what pair I’m talking about so let’s not go into specifics.
Today, I sat at my Evil Blogger’s Chair and decided that a fake news article about Samsung hiring Sotto and/or Villacorta for its patent war with Apple would be all sorts of giggly fun.
As each sentence made the news funnier (ergo, more evil and slightly untrue) I got worried-er. Soon, I started looking up Philippine Laws on libel, defamation, satire, publication, parodies, etc.
Three hours + a Biogesic later, I still have no idea what’s allowed or not. What’s legal or not. What’s fair game or not. What the legislators were smoking when they made those laws.
All I know is it takes a pair to post a potentially viral fake news like that.
And since you’re reading this crappy story about The Ballsy Post That Cannot Be, the conclusion is: I need a pair. I need it if I’m going to be serious about not being serious in this blog.
Maybe I should’ve joined the testicle betting event hosted by PAGCOR last year and put my (male relatives’) balls either on GMA not escaping or not returning to power. If I lose, the Macapagals will be back in power. If I win, more balls!
(Update: looks like the Inquirer had a couple of extra pairs lying around because they can write fake jokey news about Senators. I’m having major ball-envy right now…)
