That must be one frazzled copy editor

This is exactly why I never learned Tagalog when I lived there. Too many "Congs" "Dongs" and "Jhongs" were running around. In fact the only things I can say are, "Magandang hapon po" and "Maligayang pasko". That means "Good afternoon" and "Merry Christmas". You can't go far with those phrases so I just smiled and nodded a lot.

Must cost the family a fortune to have their Christmas cards engraved every year.

Publicly posting some of those names could be a hanging offense in Texas.

One of the Mangudadatu cousins is probably nicknamed Rama-Lama-Ding-Dong.

Keeping the campaign out of da doilet will never happen.

These guys could be from the southern region of the country and be similarly faced with keeping their campaign out of the sheeter.

Please accept my sincerest apology for paging Lou Diamond Phillips.

How could a campaign manager go wrong with, "VOTE DONG!"?

Or, "You Can't Go Wrong With Dong!"?

(Get your mind out of the gutter - "Dong" means "Boy" in the Phillipines!)

♫ BE BOP BIPPY SABBA SO SIPPY
NUBBY NA NA
BONG A DONG FRAP A THONG
THIS IS MY EARLY MORNING SINGING SONG!
GOOD MORNING STARSHINE...♫

[If we all put more music in elections, and dongs and bongs, it would be a happier world!]

Only Cong and Dong made it? What were Bong and Shlong's excuses? Family, sheesh.

That microphone is scaring me... 'nuff said

I saw Cong Dong open for The Sex Pistols.
