Senator Miriam Santiago should have a comedy concert! (Seriously!)

One of her latest jokes involves cup noodles, but not in the literal sense.

Miriam in action.


Unlike most politicians who are tapped to be speakers at commencement exercises, Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago is actually very entertaining. This is why we think she should start charging for her stand-up comedy act. As the Joker said in The Dark Knight, "If you’re good at something, never do it for free."


But, alas, Santiago is cracking jokes and firing off one-liners for free at all these speaking engagements she gets invited to.


On Thursday, May 8, Santiago had a crowd of 2,000 in an ROTFL mood when she spoke at the commencement exercises of Baliwag Polytechnic College in Bulacan.


Santiago had asked, "Cup noodles ka ba? Bakit? Kasi gusto kitang buhusan ng kumukulong tubig (Are you cup nooted? Why? Because I want to pour boiling water over you)."


ABS-CBN News correspondent Jorge Carino reported that Santiago had also flattered the audience by saying that they were smarter than her fellow senators. (Really? Even Senator "Happy"?)


The woman should at least be vice president. At least.
