As we all know, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach had a grand homecoming parade today, Monday, January 25, 2016 in various streets in Metro Manila. But because heavy traffic is expected, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) tried its best to entertain netizens by posting funny replies to comments. Below are some of the most funniest ones.
“Kaunting pasensya po muna sa traffic. May dumaraang anghel.” (Please be patient with the traffic. An angel is passing by.) One of the admins of MMDA Facebook page wrote as a caption to a photo of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach riding on a float, and waving to the crowd. Shortly, netizens started to comment, and MMDA entertained them with funny comments.
For our non-Tagalog readers, here are our rough English translation of some of them:
Utaro: I have no problem, but I have a question. Will there be throwing of candies during the parade?
MMDA: None. Pia will only throw beauty.
Isaiah: It’s Ok. Pia brought honor to our country.
MMDA: Once Pia comes down at Ayala. You ride at her float to replace her.
Racson: When Pia threw beauty, were there many women to catch? Was this effective?”
MMDA: Maybe. It’s effective for me.
Marwin: What would (Mayor Rody) Duterte say about the traffic this time?
MMDA: It’s just a parade, no illegal drugs involved.
Joanna: Do we always have to hear, “Be patient”?
MMDA: How about we say “sorry” instead?
Dennis (using Steve Harvey’s photo as profile picture): An angel is passing by, but the traffic is hell
MMDA: Aren’t you the one who made her win?
