Procopio Mnemonic

I’m a “Government destabilizer” and all – and this is not a self-appropriated label – but one thing I have to give props to The Government is its propensity towards acronyms and mnemonic devices to remind us about its programs for Governance.  Take Department of Education Sec. Jesli Lapus’ new acronym to remind us all of punctuality:

WATCH: We Are Time Conscious and Honest.

That read WATCAH to me, but let’s just give it to Sec. Lapus to remind us all to wear wristwatches.  Or:

GMA: Ginintuang Masaganang Ani (among other things).

Whatever.

Of course there are those days that I think our Government runs things by way of a slambook…

JAPAN: Just Always Pray At Night… perennial classic.

ITALY: I Trust And Love You… too bad about Jolens.

BALIWAG: Beauty And Love I Will Always Give… the fuck was that?

MALABON: May A Lasting Affair Be Ours Now… I think the motel rows are in nearby Caloocan myself, but there’s no acronym for that.

PARANAQUE: Please Always Remain Adorable, Nice And Quiet Under Ecstasy… there’s something kind of wrong here, since I think the PCP is being sold somewhere else, not here.  Not that I know anything about it.

MARLBORO: Men Always Remember Love Because Of Romance Only… change of cigarette brands in order.

Then there’s my favorite:

    Extasy is MDMA, not PCP. That’s angel dust.
