A CHILD beggar sang to jeepney passengers as they headed towards one of Cebu City’s malls, hoping they would take pity and give him money.

While some gave him coins, others were either talking to their phones or ignoring him altogether. Frustrated, the child beggar broke mid-sentence into his singing and exclaimed: “hahaha kapoy na (it’s tiring).”

At that point, no one cared and the child got off the jeepney, consoling himself with the few coins he had in his hands.


A broadcaster known for his wily sense of humor took a detour from his tirade against a local official to complain about the popularity of the “Pineapple Pen” song.

“At least ang Gangnam Style naay lyrics ug sayon sayawon. Kanang Pineapple Pen, tulo lang ang lyrics ug sumo kaayo,” he said.

(Gangnam style has lyrics and is easily danceable. But Pineapple Pen has only three-word lyrics and is monotonous.)

His listeners can only agree, though the broadcaster was quick to admit that anyone can make a song popular through social media.


A moviegoer got sleepy in the middle of the film when his cell phone rang, annoying some in the audience, with one of them kicking him behind the seat he sat on.

Roused from his stupor, the moviegoer entertained the thought of beating up the person who kicked his seat but instead turned off his cell phone and went back to sleep.

He only woke up to the audience laughing at some scenes and by then he found the movie entertaining enough to keep his attention glued to the screen for the rest of the hour and a half.
