While driving to work yesterday morning, I saw the message on the mudguard of the truck in front of me: Walang matinong kumpare sa alembong na kumare. On my way to rehearsals later in the afternoon, I spotted this new photocopying shop in UP Village: Pakopya Ni Edgar.

Ah, the Pinoy humor! I remember back when I was still working in an advertising agency, two of our female officemates decided to put up a tailoring business, and they asked us copywriters to come up with name studies for their shop. My favorite was I Sew Design because it came with a built-in jingle, thanks to Ace Of Base.

Times like these we need all the laughter and joy we can get.

Hahaha. I miss those funny signs. True-blue Pinoy-isms. Been trying to think of specific examples that I remember, pero wala akong maalala kundi itong sign sa mga jeep: "God knows Judas not pay".
