THREE PRESIDENTS AND A NOT QUITE
One night, President Gloria Arroyo is awakened by President Manuel Quezon's ghost in Malacanang. Gloria asks: "Mishter Preshident, what ish the besht thing I can do to shave the Philippinsh?"
"Don't pursue Charter Change, listen to your countrymen, and always set an honest and honorable example, just as I did," Quezon advises.
The next night, the ghost of President Elpidio Quirino moves through the dark bedroom. "Mishter Preshident," Gloria asks, "What ish the besht thing I can do to shave the Philippinsh?"
"Cut taxes, fight corruption, live a simple life, and settle your legitimacy issue once and for all," Qurino advises.
Gloria isn't sleeping well the next night, while FG Mike is snoring like a warthog, embracing his favorite Winnie the Pooh coloring book. She sees another figure moving in the shadows. It's President Ramon Magsaysay's ghost! "Mishter Preshident," again Gloria asks, "What ish the besht thing I can do to shave the Philippinsh?"
Magsaysay replies: "GO RIDE A PLANE."
