Today marks the first day of the filing of #Eleksyon2016 Certificates of Candidacy (or CoC, although it's entirely unrelated to that other CoC our girlfriends love to hate) for aspiring local and national government posts.

Amid the throng of established candidates, there are a handful of hopefuls who make us scratch our heads when it comes to their motives for running. The sadder thing is that this has become a regular thing (remember Eddie Gil?).

The Commission on Elections usually tag them as nuisance candidates, but we honestly think the label is too tedious for these (sideshow) "candidates."

Below are a few of them!

ASPIRANTS WHO REPRESENT THE FUNNY (AND AT THE SAME TIME TRAGIC) SIDE OF PHILIPPINE ELECTIONS

Seriously?!


THE PINOY MOTORIST COMMUNITY WAS WELL-REPRESENTED

Freddiesher Llamas - tricycle driver

Alejandro Ignacio - taxi driver

Armando Cortez - armored van driver

In fairness, these three somewhat understand the plight of daily motorists and the dread of local traffic.


KRIS AQUINO'S 'HUSBAND'

And then there's this... (We really don't know what to call him.)

Daniel Magtira, after being disqualified a number of times in the past, is once again running for senator, vowing to fight for equality and the Constitution.

So, if ever Magtira wins, does that mean Krissy levels up from Presidential Sister to First Lady?


BIN-GO ISN'T THE PROUDEST TANDEM NAME

And finally, the first President-VP duo to file its CoCs, Vice President Jejomar Binay and Senator Gringo Honasan formalize their 2016 bid.

Oh wait, we think this tandem's dead serious...
