The Reason

So you're wondering what the hell the why-for was last Thursday? Read on...

(Three military officers being charged for coup d'etat meet in a Makati City court.)

1st military officer: Hey, I need to get out of here. What's the best way to do it?

2nd military officer (higher-ranking): Well, we can create a diversion?

3rd military officer-turned-senator: But what kind of diversion? It has to be good enough that the government won't notice he's gone until hours, maybe even days later.

2nd military officer: Well, we could always walk out of here and lodge at a hotel nearby. I've always been preferential of staying at Manila Pen.

3rd military officer-turned-senator: Yeah, and we could call everyone's attention and nobody will notice that he's gone.

1st military officer: Great! So, shall we go?

And the rest, as they say, is a madcap notch in our crazy political history...
