I don't quite know what the Philippine Daily Inquirer editors were thinking when they published this for the front page. This is quite possibly Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's most unflattering picture in existence.

It just screams: "Ee-heee-heee-heee-heee!"


Witch Hazel - Traditional hag of a witch with green skin, warted nosed and a shrill, explosive laugh (EE-HEE-HEE- HEE-HEE-HEE!!!!!!!) featured in a number of Warner Brothers cartoons. Witch Hazel first appeared in the cartoon short Bewitched Bunny released July 24, 1954.


  1. precisely why they would run it, i think. ;)

  2. Reminds me of Eng-Eng, the bruha from the radio series Zimatar that was later made into a movie starring JC Bonnin.

    That's precisely how she laughs. And not because I now really feel old.:)

  3. I think it's a subtle type of satire. Not that satires are ever not subtle.

  4. Heh, you could make a post like this every single day talking about the subtle and not-so-subtle ways the Inquirer spins the news against the administration.
