“”Ni-rape nila lahat ng babae…So ang unang casualty, ang isa dun yung lay minister na Australyana.
Tsk, problema ito. Australyana eh!
Pag labas, binalot. Tiningnan ko yung mukha. Putangina, parang artista sa Amerika na maganda.
Putangina, sayang ito!
Ang pumasok sa isip ko…ni rape nila! Pinag pilahan nila! Putanginang yan, nagalit na ako. Kasi ni rape? Ah, oo. Isa na rin yun. NAPAKA GANDA, DAPAT MAYOR MUNA ANG MAUNA.”
