Filipinos are extra-good at humor because we’ve seen and experienced so much pain.
Laughter is our way of dealing with the pain.
And so I’d like to encourage you guys to read my hubby Alan’s two latest humor columns.
The one today is entitled Fly-by-night nursing schools? What?
Hello, my name is Jumbo Urinal. I’m the owner, manager, director, main stockholder, accounting officer and maintenance man of a very prestigious nursing school.
Nalulungkot kami, because there are really nasty reports in the media that our country is full of so-called “substandard” nursing schools in the Philippines. There are even accusations that many of them are fly-by-night operations just out to make money while giving defective education. And that they only manage to stay open by pulling political strings and asking certain congresswomen to stop government from closing them down.
That’s a lie! Nothing could be further from the truth! Let’s take MY school as an example. I happen to think we meet all the requirements of a good nursing school.
What are those requirements?
One, it should have a good name. Ours is “Have Mercy and Save Us All Mama Mary School of OK Na Yan Nursing.” Definitely prestigious.

The last was made by Alan following the Church defiance to pull down their “Team Patay” posters:
