Hunger Games, Philippine Edition

Coming home from watching the Hunger Games (although I haven't read the book yet),  I let my imagination run wild again.

Why don't we create the local version, except this time the contestants are the 188 congressmen who signed the impeachment complaint against Chief Justice Renato Corona?  We gather them all, let them loose in the Philippine forests (or what's left of them).  They need to fight each other, and for their survival, until only one of them remains.  The prize: pork barrel, to handed over by none other than President Benigno Aquino III himself!

Di pala sila nagbasa ng complaint ha.  Let's see how they do when their very survivals as human beings are on the line.  They will face the many dangers of "roughing it" in the wild, and they may end up seeing Red.

Happy Hunger Games congressmen, may the odds be ever in your favor...
