I don’t know if it was the same with you but these people/events of 2003 got me emailing, commenting, cursing, applauding, laughing, crying, arguing, seething, clapping, etc. They were, to be sure, responsible for the level of sanity we now find ourselves as a people.
They sure stung us bad. Let’s hope it wasn’t fatal! As a way of saying goodbye to them, please sing the lyrics below to the tune of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire”
Candidate GMA, Ping Lacson, FPJ,
Brother Eddie Villanueva, Senator Roco
Noli, Danding, Kris and Joey, Brat pack of the NPC,
Grin-go, Oak-wood, senate inquiries
REFRAIN: We didn’t start the fire. The world’s been burning since the world’s been turning…..
Jose Pidal, Bishop Yalung, Mike Arroyo, Ted Bacani,
Typhoons, flash floods, disaster in Leyte
STDs, SARS scare, coup d’etat, junta,
Peso devaluation, 55 to 1
Kidnappings unabated, Supreme Court versus congress,
SMC Boycott, bombings in Davao
MRT, Jingle stations, number coding, midnight madness,
Sea Games, PBA, Go Manny Pacquiao!
Back in court once again, Kuratong Baleleng,
Quezon City judge says Ping is innocent!
Computerization, Camacho resignation,
Al Ghozi executed, Commander Robot amputated!
Traf-fic, gar-bage, air pollution, demolition
Terror at the airport, bombings in Iraq
George Bush, Ka Blas, 10% amusment tax
Jemaiya Islamiya, and Abu Sayyaf
ABS-CBN, GMA Channel 7,
Sex Bombs, Ocho-ocho, and spagheti song
Station wars heat up, ratings, scandals
Midgets on Television, Mura at Mahal
S-Files, The-Buzz, Morning Girls, and Sis,
Chinovela, F4, I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!
Did I miss out on anyone?
GOODBYE 2003. HELLO 2004!
