File this under "Reasons Why The Internet Never Ceases To Amaze Us."
A screenshot of a 2016 GMA News TV Quick Response Team report about a man who threatened his best friend with a bolo is spreading like wildfire on social media, not because anyone was hurt, but for something rather amusing.
Apparently, the two fought over some unsettled business but reconciled the feud in the end. The target of the attack explained how he survived: "Malakas po yung guardian angel ko sa likod." If that sound bite wasn't meme-worthy enough, his kumpare had a much better quip on why his blow was non-fatal: "Ginaya ko lang si Battousai, binaliktad yung talim."
This comes on the heels of another news-item-turned-online-laughing-stock, the "Advance ako mag-isip" meme, where a drug dealing suspect rationalized his actions using the now infamous phrase. Local netizens, with their love for anything crime-related, anime-themed, and just plain funny, had a field day with the latest entry in the PH's growing list of crazy interviews.
Can't go wrong with the remix
When your 'last hit' goes wrong
In time for circum-season
This edit is oddly satisfying
10/10 would follow this series
More like Bato-sai

Partida baliktad pa
The best adaptation, so far
