It's not really easy to wake up one morning and realize that you're a movie star now. What more, your own story is featured. Since it's the election 'bisperas' today, I'd like to imagine starring in my own doomsdayish-socio-political-satirical comedy film. I'd like to call it "The Outsider."
The story begins with Mr. Peluka, a nuisance presidential candidate for four elections in a row and this year after preparing everything, has now passed to be an official candidate. Because election in the Philippines has become too dirty, every strong candidate for presidency made their own plans to get rid of the other stronger candidates. All of them had each candidate planning for their death on the day of elections. All of them were successful. All of them died. The nation has to have a president.
Because Mr. Peluka wasn't viewed as a threat at all, nobody planned to kill him at all. And because all other strong and worthy candidates died out of their selfish and evil motives, the nation is left with only one official candidate--Mr. Peluka. All of these events and the ones that led to his victory are documented by none other than The Outsider-- the writer who will then write the biggest part of Philippine history ever to date.
The Outsider details how Mr. Peluka became an official candidate from being a nuisance. And expresses how he despises Mr. Peluka's unplanned victory. But at the end of the day, The Outsider shares the biggest lesson of all time in Philippine politics that would then change every voters' values: better a weird man with pure heart than strong, highly experienced, opinionated candidates with evil desires.
Wow! I don't know if that movie plot will ever make sense. But I'm sure it would be one movie I'd go with my Kettle Korn snacks poppin' fun all time. With all the frustrating parts of the story, the best comfort I could get would be a poppin' fun all time Kettle Korn. Thanks to its sweet flavor!
