God bless his All-Holiness.  I guess it's time to start the logical campaign:

Time to move the EP to the USA so we don't have to keep sending money to Turkey.

BAD BOY, BAD ARIMETHEA, YOU GO STRAIGHT TO THE NAUGHTY CHAIR!  I just read the caption and about choked on Veniamin's Lenten Southwest Bean Soup (very good soup recipe BTW, Veniamin.  You need to try it with a couple of slices of my homemade bread).  Now, back to Arimethea - very very naughty.    Wink

When I created this post I did it so that it would be obvious that this is an April Fools joke, guess I failed. So that no one else thinks that this is real...

THIS IS AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE!!!!!

For those of you who think this was a lame April Fools joke, you are right. My other joke I did ended up getting me a phone call from our beloved Site Dhespota, Anastasios, and congratulations from a Bishop. I decided to change my Facebook status from single to engaged. By far one of the most successful April Fools jokes ever.

Its all cool S_O! Sarcasm is literally one of the hardest things to understand when coming to a new language! especially through such an impersonal means at the internet. Also I'm not quite sure they have April Fools day in Philippine's. Its a day when people play pranks on each other and this article happened to be one of them.

Hahahahahaha!!! laugh

This makes me come to a funny realization, that if you did that to an elderly Filipino, they'll knock you out of your socks!! Of course the younger generations don't do that anymore, although we are still taught never to play jokes with our parents and elders..
Its  cultural..
I guess its kinda obvious with what I said, that we don't celebrate it here.  Grin
