Buzz: Two angry men

-A A +A

Friday, December 20, 2013


YU MIGHT have read about it in the papers but words didn’t quite catch the anger of these two men as graphically as the TV news video did:

DANILO ALMENDRAS, local government Cebu City director, chairman of the board of election supervisors that oversaw the elections of the Association of Barangay Elections (ABC), was quoted in the papers as saying “Don’t try me. Apilon kon ninyo sa inyong binuang, mag-away gyud ta. (If you include me in your foolishness, we’d have a fight).”

That sounded tame on paper but on TV, with the tone and body language, Almendras came out almost fuming in the mouth.

AN UNIDENTIFIED RELATIVE of the victim of a hacking by a beauty shop helper who lived with the family of the owners:

“Giingnan tamo ayaw’g papuyo anang bayot kay traydor na... (I told you not to allow that gay to live with us because they’re treacherous).”

That reproach said on TV exuded the wrath of a man who had been ignored and proven right.
