Vote for me in 2010

On Monday, billboard operators dismantled outdoor advertisements deemed "indecent" by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH). Piolo Pascual's shirtless -- just no shirt, but with pants -- ad was one of the first to go.

In a report by Marlon Ramos for the Inquirer:

(DPWH Assistant Director Armando) Estrella said in a statement that the operators of outdoor signages volunteered to take down the huge ads after “they realized that many people were against indecent and immoral billboards.”

“They were conscience-stricken,” he said, adding, “They fear the backlash in public opinion will affect the products they are endorsing.”

Okay. Please help me understand. A country that finds a shirtless dude in jeans "indecent" and "immoral" but has a population of 96 million, 40 percent of which are below the poverty line; has a Senate that conducts hearings on sex scandals between starlets; and a Congress made up of a-holes.

Vote for me in 2010. I will make Piolo the centerpiece of my cultural renaissance program. Heck, I'll put him in our P20, P50, P100, P500, P1,000 bills. I'll engrave his abs on all our coins.
