Its first two days saw a handful of trippy nuisance candidates heading to Palacio del Gobernador in Intramuros, Manila just like moviegoers lining up at ticket booths on a weekend. CoC-filing week indeed had a rough start.
While there were still a number of head-scratching applicants, Day 3 wasn't as laughable as Monday and Tuesday, with seasoned politicos and familiar faces being the majority of the hopeful candidates.
We aren't sure if the decrease of loonies will continue tomorrow, but here's hoping that people like that man who claims to have tossed a giant when he was still a kid will not even try...
Meanwhile, here is a quick roundup of the busy third day extravaganza:
SEN. ANTONIO TRILLANES - FOR VICE PRESIDENT
A throng of recognizable senatorial wannabes filled the halls of Palacio:
