And the JOKE OF THE YEAR Award goes to…

the Armed Forces of the Philippines! A human rights summit is to be hosted by AFP  “in a bid to shed its image of being the number one rights violator in the country“, Inquirer said.

This is so funny I am willing to take charge of  finding a venue for this summit. I guess a comedy bar is way, way appropriate for this event. Actually, I will give (as a gift, of course) the place afterwards. Then, they can always hold all their press cons, meetings, and sing and dance there.

This comedy bar for the AFP will make Klownz run for its money. (
