Post Mortem: Bieber, Pacman and Mommy D!

So, Justin Bieber 'twitted' some pictures making fun of the Filipino national pride that is Pacman and as expected he got the ire of the sensitive Pinoys. That’s an empirical testament to the recent study naming Pinoys as the most emotional or sensitive race in the planet!

Pinoy netizens were quick to react to Bieber’s photos equating the act as a distasteful act meant to ridicule an entire nation and not a person. 

Last time I checked my geography books, Pacman is not the Philippines and Philippines is not Manny Pacquiao. So why make a big deal out of it?

I also do not know which is more funny, the fact that some Filipino’s find Bieber’s act as an attack to our nation or the fact that these same people are the ones sharing and circulating photos making fun of Dionesia, Jinkee and yes at some point Pacquiao!

Sample of the photo uploaded by Justin Bieber

I think the message is clear, it’s ok to make fun of our own kind. If it’s a foreigner doing it, it’s an attack of some sorts. If that is not double standard I do not know what it is.

Perhaps, stupidity. Perhaps misplaced nationalism. Perhaps boredom.

Bieber made fun of Manny by posting photos on Instagram and Twitter. What he didn't know is that he made fun of himself just by being Justin Bieber!

Breaking: After the incident Pacman is dropping the Bieber look.

Numerous analyses circulated after the Pacman-Marquez IV bout. 

One interesting point of view is that Manny has been dominating the number of punches thrown until that fateful 6th round.

Well, that statement is a fact but it undermines one critical boxing rule- scores only matter in boxing bouts where a knockout did NOT happen. 

In this case, a knockout transpired! In broad daylight!

So yes, discussion of the scores is just immaterial and irrelevant.

Breaking: After the knockout, Pacman camp is seriously considering sacking out Freddie Roach as a coach for the next fight. He will instead be replaced by the legendary Claudine Baretto!

Mon Tulfo refused to comment when asked if he would be a 'willing' sparing partner. 

Mommy Dionesia was quick to point out that the root cause of Pacman’s defeat is his change in religion. 

Funny how a ‘Catholic God’ can enable his son to crush his opponents and how a ‘Born Again God’ cannot.

Unknown to Mommy D though, the Catholic God withdrew support because she (Mommy D) has been more pre-occupied ballroom dancing and shopping for the latest Louis Vitton bag!

In the same interview Mommy Dionesia was quoted saying ‘hindi hayop ang anak ko!’ addressing Bob Arum. 

The melodramatic statement was a nostalgic rehash of the iconic ‘my brother is not a pig!’ line popularized by no less than the Superstar Nora Aunor.

Breaking: There is little credibility to news hinting that Mommy D is starring in the next instalment of Shake, Rattle and Roll series nor will she reprise the role of Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang sans prosthetics!

Meanwhile hardcore anti-RH groups were quick to point out in two separate instances (Habagat and Typhoon Pablo) that such calamities were heaven’s way of saying ‘NO TO RH Bill!’

But when asked if Pacman’s defeat was also a punishment from heaven, the Anti-RH group kept their mouth shut.

Speaking of RH Bill, a quorum is required before it can be enacted in to a law. Lawmakers though are either absent or on leave.

The suggestion is to stage the Pacman-Marquez V at the Batasan so that once and for all attendance of our congressmen would be 100%- even for just a single day.

So I guess before we stage an indignation rally versus Bieber we should first hold our beloved and highly competent Congressmen accountable.
