Episode 24: Scumbag Binay (and BONUS: Episode 25 preview!)

It’s one thing for a local official to be epal. It’s another thing for a national official to be epal. Still another thing for party list organizations to be epal.

But when Vice President Jejomar Binay goes epal, he goes the extra mile. In this case, an extra 536.35 miles, from Manila all the way down to Zamboanga, where Nur Misuari’s MNLF faction has occupied portions of Zamboanga City, engaging the AFP in firefights while using hostages as human shields and burning houses and buildings alike.

No amount of words can fully express how disgusted I feel over the acts of our heroic *coughsarcasmcough* VP.  Enter Cocoy Dayao , ever to the rescue, pretty much summing up everything I wanted to say – complete with a quote from me at the very end. Thanks, Cocoy!

That written, I still need an outlet to express this disgust. So what better way than to give Binay the Tatad treatment?

Without further ado, I present: the Scumbag Binay Memes.

True story.

Because it's PNoys fault. Regardless of the situation. Universal truth. *coughyearightcough*

But hey, why let VP Binay have all the glory? There’s plenty of dripping sarcasm to go around.

That had better not have been on public money.

To be fair, Makati Mayor Junjun Binay likely did have a role to play when he got to Zamboanga. After all, why have one Binay distribute relief goods, when you can have two Binays doing the same thing for double the air fare?

Because it's never too early for early campaigning.

In the end, it seems that Binay had gifts for everyone – especially for his newfound supporters in the allegedly “official” MNLF Twitter account:

The gratitude of kings.

Now, netizens evidently didn’t appreciate any of these gestures.  Here’s what Binay had to say:

Because sending people stuff that makes them irritated at you to begin with is an efficient, optimal way to win them over.

Oddly, haven’t we heard that line before?

To be fair, Nancy may have learned it from him first, so... yeah.

Now, get creative, let loose your inner, er, whoever it is you hold as an idol for snark, and feel free to use this Scumbag Binay template. Enjoy!

That hat looks pretty good on him. He should make that his signature accessory. Like Kuya Kim, only Kuya Kim isn't a scumbag.

Now, why let dear old Scumbag Binay have all the meme glory? Here’s a few other memes to round out the sentiments:

Tell'em, Boromir.

Legit question. How *is* that working out for you, Binay?

Looks like A, feels like B.

So, VP, I guess we can tag your trip "Mission Accomplished?"

No, Robin, it's not okay.

From Manila to Zamboanga. Sayang talaga yung panahon.

And as a nod to Cocoy’s “Binaying” article (which you really should read, right now), we go to the classic Y U NO Guy:

Bakit nga ba? Four numbers: 2-0-1-6.

Yeah, that was therapeutic. =)

Because I’m a nice guy, and because I promised law school buddy Jay Garcia that I’d make a Napoles meme, here’s a sneak preview of Episode 25: Photo-Ops:

Napoles with Voldemort

Yup, I’m gonna go there. =)
