Janet Lim Napoles
MANILA - President Aquino ditched his prepared speech during the visit at the Palace of tourists and balikbayans from Canada saying it did not convey what he wanted to tell the audience.
He began by saying that despite the problems that beset the country last year, Filipinos still managed to smile.
He pointed out that jokes are still being shared around through text messaging and shared one about Janet Lim Napoles, the alleged mastermind of the pork barrel scam.
The joke poked fun at Napoles’ inability to recall details during a Senate hearing.
"Ngayon ho, ang pinadala sa aking text ay ganito ang nakalagay:
'Yong Maalaala Mo Kaya na programa ay gagawin raw hong isang episode buhay ni Mrs. Napoles.
'So natural ho, dumating ‘yong mga scriptwriter, in-interview si Mrs. Napoles at itinanong ng iba-ibang detalye.
Sa bawat tanong po ng mga scriptwriter ang sinasabi raw ho ni Mrs. Napoles ay ‘Hindi ko maalala ‘yan.’
May tinanong na ibang bagay, ‘Wala akong maalalang ganyan’
Pagkatapox po ng 5 o 6 na oras sa kaka-interview, wala pa hong nasusulat ang scripwriter. Hindi na po matutuloy raw ‘yong episode ng Maalaala Mo Kaya."
