would like to observe a moment of silence to lament a new world record for the Philippines:
The Philippines has the fastest growing HIV epidemic in the world, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Say what you will about him, but President NoyNoy Aquino has achieved more world records for the Philippines than any of his predecessors.
Today, the Philippine Navy unveiled its new submarine, the first ever built by a Third World country.
The Philippines now joins First World countries like the U.S., Japan, Russia, China, the U.K. and others in having a locally-built submarine in its fleet of sea vessels. The Philippine submarine is being acclaimed as the best-looking of all submarines in the world. It is green in color, unlike all other submarines that are colored a boring gray, black or brown; and it is fully airconditioned with wi-fi on board. It operates in water and on land, especially during times of severe floods in Metro Manila and other urban centers in the country.
“We couldn’t have achieved this new milestone had it not been for my policy of pursuing a straight path (Daang Matuwid),” Aquino said. “We were able to minimize government corruption and waste which enabled us to use our resources to beef up our defense system, including building our own, indigenous yet world-class submarine.”
