EDSA ?! Ano yan?!

I just remembered this on a certain television show last year wherein it conducted a survey regarding on Filipino's basic knowledge on to the history of EDSA. Of course, they frequently asked on to the teenagers of the new generation (those who were born in the 90's and above). Some of the answers might be funny to you but it's a shame that not ALL FILIPINOS know what EDSA is.

Question: "Excuse me, alam mo ba ang kasaysayan EDSA?"

These answers came from various people in the busy streets of Manila - rich or poor, kulot or straight ang buhok, bata't matanda, mayaman or feeling mayaman, students or out-of-school youths, gay/lesbo, bi or straight:


A 16 yr. old girl answered:

"Diba yan ang lugar kung saan pinatalsik si MARCOS, pati si ERAP?"

► **Ding! Korek! Your history teacher will give you a grade of flat one. Congrats!
A young saleslady replied: "Uhhhm. EDSA? Ewan. (Hahahaha). Basta EDSA, Holiday, diba?"

► Oh my GOD.

A teenage boy replied this: "Hmmm. (Thinks deeply). Aba. Ang maalala ko lang ay ito: Diyan nag concert ang sambayanang Pilipino ng BAYAN KO. (Then he sang: ♫IBON MAN MAY LAYANG LUMIPAD..♫)"

► Errr, You almost got the point.

A group of fifteen year old high school students of a certain public school replied in unison: "Hehehehe. Shy kami."
► HAHAHA. Shy? Or di niyo lang talaga alam? OOOPS.

But the next answer that I'm going to share was the funniest of ALL. LOL to the max. =))

Tanong: Alam mo ba ang kasaysayan ng EDSA? Sagot (from a 19 year old rugby boy): "PARE, ano ang tingin mo sa 'kin? BALIW? BOBO?! Takte! Siyempre! Diyan pinatay si NINOY AQUINO!"
► BWAHAAHAHA. Ayan. That's a clear evidence that RUGBY surely affects one's mental ability. =))


Still can't get over with it, but it's a FACT. No wonder why Filipinos lived on this principle: "FORGIVE and FORGET". Nyay!

    ohhh, my YM stat message inspired U! haha. i'm not that passionate about politics, but it's just that WE are FILIPINOS. WE should KNOW our OWN history. Funny why they don't even bother...

    LOL take this,

    I was watching the news, and the reporter asked a person at the rally why he/she was there, guess what she said " e sabi nila may mga pagkain daw dito".
