Comedy Relief: New threat to kiddies, 16 December 2009

I had a great big laugh yesterday late afternoon as I was at a department store shopping for Christmas presents…

A six year old boy was having a tantrum because his mother refused to buy him the toy he wanted.  Some new thing that cost Php thousands.  He was making a mess of himself right there, embarrassing his young and pretty mother no end…

“Tama na iyan!  Pag hindi ka tumigil, pupugutan ka ng ulo ni AM*ATUAN!!!  Papatayin ka ni AM*ATUAN!!!”  snapped the mother.

The little boy immediately stood up and behaved.

I’ve heard of various threats to kiddies.  But I’ve never heard of AM*ATUAN to be one of them!!!

How’s that for the Grinch who stole Christmas???

Harharhar!!!   😛   😛   😛

    reading this, re: new threat to Kids, reminded me of a story told by a good friend/politician of mine. She was having her hair done in a salon in the South, then suddenly a group of women entered the Salon…The attendant asked candidly, “Good morning, madam, mag-pa-ano po kayo?” One of the women answered quite rudely, “Mga Amp***an kami!” ha,ha, Ang layo ng sagot sa tanong…..

    some relatives in Davao live in the same subdivision where this family built their house in this city. After having built their humongous digs, their alalays proceeded to place No Parking signs right in front of their property and along the road!

    I agree with Anthony, as said on Oprah our kids do not need FRIENDS in their parents. They need PARENTS. One day we’ll wake up and we’ll have Children of the Corn or the Village of the Damned ruling the world!

    Of course it’s different if you become friends with your parents when you get older. While children are growing up, they need adults. They’ll have a lot of friends at school.

    I’ve heard of another child – parent incident while strolling in the mall.
    The child pointed to the parent a merchandise…
    the immediate response of the parent was…
    “It is expensive… we can not afford it.”…
    and then an astonishing remark of the young child was…
    “I am just showing it to you… because it is nice.”

    He must be the new bogeyman. When I was very small, it was the Bumbay!

    Philippine Judiciary is forgiving
    lest forgetting:

    Dacer-Corbito Double Murder Case
    [The now naturalised American] Suzette N. v. Lance Corporal Daniel S.
    the Case of Chong sisters of Cebu
    and a lot of other Filipino Foreign Correspondents who were murdered…

    She should have told him that the backhoe was waiting right outside the store!

    Seriously, I agree with Presy, the Maguindanao massacre is total shame for our country. A friend who works out at a gym has a gym mate surnamed AM*ATUAN, a second cousin of the controversial family. Now everyone is shying away from the guy all because he has that dreaded family name.

    My mom would simply glare at me as a child. The “makuha-ka-sa-isang-tingin” was all mom had to do keep us nine kids in tow.

    Failure to respond immediately meant a most harrowing albeit corporal punishment when you got home. Dad and mom were strict to a point which as I see my nieces and nephews turn out so mature and successful that it has past to my elder brother and 7 sisters.

    Two things were embedded to us, first was to be extremely prompt for appointments and never to lie, cheat or steal.

    This became the DNA standard operational procedure that built our backbones on integrity, morality and good conduct.

    Saludo to my still healthy parents who have become my BEST friends.

    This is just my opinion, but I think we tend overdo things. Like the child abuse law. Now, it’s the children that are doing the abuse. hahaha.

    Children of today have better exposure to reality, credits to the television and their bold producers and directors. When I was growing up, my parents protected me from horrible sights such as the dead lying in state during wakes until I was seven years old. Still, imposing fear of the supernatural such as aswangs, kapre, tianak, mananagal, etc was a means employed by parents to keep the children obedient and and well-behaved. How many of us feared the Bombay, keeping us from straying about in the streets. Such technique is preferred over corporal punishment. Besides, children of today even as young as age three know how to dial the authorities to report parental abuse. No wonder parents are more careful not to be seen in public castigating or physically punishing their children. Times have changed -greatly.

    The Maguindanao Massacre is a national tragedy that brings total shame and trepidation. There is more to what we gather from reports on news media. Let us all hope that Good really comes out of the exposure. Perhaps it can affect the 2010 Elections.
