Cebu-based poet Myke Obenieta writes about what is raising the hackles of the Queen City of the South's City Council.

This tease of a print ad...



Myke writes: "Roll their eyeballs, the councilors do as they raise their hackles against a print advertisement pitching for Penrex herbal capsule. Meant for those suffering erectile dysfunction, the ad offers a picture-perfect example on how to tease the imagination. It shows a bespectacled, naked male bowing his head in discontent while holding and covering his private parts with a cardboard showing a bulldog dozing off. But so extra alert are the councilors -- most of them in their late 40s and obviously downhill from their roll-down-the-hay days -- to fancy foulness, finding the promotional pitch as 'offensive to morals' and 'goes beyond the Filipinos' line of decency.' You bet, they're not joking."

Ehehehe. Makalingaw labaw sa bulan ang mga tigulang, no?
