That ain’t corn on the cob, Slick!
Welcome back to another edition of our popular feature, Stuff Maybe we Should Have Explained in the Caption, but Didn’t.
The captions for these shots from today tell us that Former Philippine President Joseph Estrada “eats with his hands” after a political rally.
It does say he was removed from office in 2001, and I guess we have to presume it was for poor table manners.
But heck, they should have known he was trouble from the start. Here he is back in 1998, scarfing it down by the fistful.
Didn’t he wonder why voters never wanted to shake his hand?
“Oh crap, Kristin, that Estrada guy is coming for dinner again tonight! Let’s put away the good tablecloth and get out the camping tarp and the hose…
“And no SOUP! Remember what happened last time!”
Above: Former Philippine President Joseph Estrada eats with his hands after a political rally in Maricaban, Pasay city, metro Manila, December 3, 2009. Estrada has said he was unconstitutionally removed from office in 2001 and is seeking a second chance to become president and complete unfinished business of helping the poor.
