A mayor recently found himself in hot water when a photo of a casket bearing his name surfaced on social media.

Netizens immediately deemed it as another—if not an extreme—case of an epal politician.

The man in question, Capas, Tarlac Mayor Antonio "TJ" Rodriguez, for his part, has already aired his side, explaining to Inquirer.net that he and his staff did this "to prevent double collection of companies that provide the funeral services."

He added that "the coffins painted with my name indicated that the coffins were already paid for by the local government and that the relatives of the dead need not pay anymore."

Whether he's telling the truth or a big, fat steaming pile of crap, the issue of turning just about anything into propaganda material, intentional or not, by putting one's name on it has never escaped public scrutiny. In the end, it isn't the intent that matters but really the manner or way it was done.

That said, if we really can't stop these epalitikos, then we say "help" them! Below are a dozen ad placement ideas where these exposure-hungry officials can freely put their names or even their faces on.

We're quite sure the COMELEC or social media won't have any problem with...
