The University of the Philippines Board of Regents has officially opened nominations for the next UP President in preparation for when Dr. Emerlinda R. Roman ends her term on February 9, 2011. I hereby nominate MANNY 'PACMAN' PACQUIAO as UP's next president based on the following reasons:

  1.  Pacquiao fits the criteria of being "a national and  international renowned Filipino", ergo...
  2.  He will not have a hard time seeking funding for the UP System from outside sources.
  3. He will prioritize the UP's Sports Agenda so that we may win the championship at the UAAP.
  4. He couldn't care less about "politics" in the academe.
  5. Together with UP Law Dean Marvic Leonen, they could solve the MILF crisis and finally bring peace to Mindanao.
  6.  Jinky Pacquiao could take courses at UP upon the UP President's discretion. She doesn't need to fear the UPCAT.
  7. He has better abs than the oblation.
  8. If number two above fails, Pacman can donate some of his earnings to UP programs that need funding.
  9. Let him inspire the youth by serving in the country's foremost State University. He should forget congress and the crocodiles inhabiting its chambers.
  10. If he can get away with his outfit pictured above... he'll look dashing donning the 'sablay' during commencement exercises.

(two poems i dug up from the past dedicated to Sarah Palin and her clueless sense of humor)

UNTITLED (ca. 1992)

Trying to conquer the kitchen I suddenly thought of you.   Of us.
Skimming off the fat made me cringe at the thought of beads
dribbling onto the already sopping bed sheet. Cutting up the meat
reminded me of our coarse gentleness.

I tied up your ginger toes along with slivers of your leek-green eyes
for the bouquet garni. You nibbled on my earlobes like they were
button mushrooms as I stirred and stirred to thicken the fury.

We simmered an hour too long. We had become rancid.
The room fetid. At breakfast you were honey to my friend's bed of pancakes.

I was told.

UNTITLED (circa 2002)
