Mayor Vico Sotto Wants You to Stop Sending Him Butt Pics
"Wag niyo na po idagdag yung puwet ninyo sa iniisip ko," he said
(SPOT.ph) Like most local government units in Metro Manila, Pasig City is currently rolling out COVID-19 vaccines to their residents and workers under the top three categories in the priority list: healthcare workers, seniors, and people with comorbidities. But in the middle of it all, Mayor Vico Sotto didn't fail to elicit some LOLs among his constituents. In a Facebook Live on Monday, April 12 during his lunch break, the young mayor warned: "Ang dami ko na pong iniisip, wag niyo na po idagdag yung puwet ninyo sa iniisip ko."
It's funny when taken out of context, but the quip is not without basis. As it turns out, some newly vaccinated Pasigueños are sending him photographs of their injection site as proof of their vaccination. Most people are being inoculated on the arm, but some—like those with tattoos, as explained by Sotto—are injected on the butt cheeks. While the mayor is happy that people in his city are getting vaccinated, he can't say the same about the butt pics.
"Minsan may nagpapadala sa akin, dalawa na ata, picture nila, binabakunahan sa puwet. Normal yan, medikal naman ang usapan pero pakiusap huwag niyo na po i-send sa akin," he said in the video.
Sotto's "Monday Lunch Break Updates" also include other announcements on the local vaccination program and distributtion...er, distribution of cash assistance to his constituents. But if you're looking to have some laughs on this busy Monday, you can hit the 11:40 mark on his Facebook Live video.
