The Philippine Onion

Lies and half-truths shall set you free

Vic Mangosteen is ripe again; we’re going public

Posted by commiedyan on November 19, 2007

Vic Mangosteen, the ex-PDI columnist who was the victim of our calumny recently, is right again. The Philippine Onion will be offering shares to the public, hopefully before the end of the year. By that time, everything old would be new again.
Management has authorized us to release the following information:

  • TPO has hired IPO consultant the zoftig Rhona Tan Nathan, estranged wife of Ron Nathan, that joke/r of a stock analyst for PDI, and cousin of Dante Tan, otherwise referred to by investors who lost their Victoria’s and Vittorio’s secret underwear in the BW scam as Kawa Tan.
  • Management considered a backdoor listing but balked because the basura (garbage) stocks among Ricky Carandangs favorites have been hyped up beyond our means. These are supposed to be, or soon to be engaged in mining, including the first gentleman’s nose, said to be full of stalactites and stalagmites, not to mention anthracite and lignite, major fuels warming the globe. The rumor that’s been going around the local bourse on Matias Defensor‘s prodigal son and Geograce Resources has just been confirmed. The price of GEO has more than tripled in the past 52 weeks.
  • We’ve also been asked to apologize in advance to the lovely but sad Cilette Liboro and the bubbly Martha Vinzons, who might twist their tongues pronouncing the names of the aforementioned in one sentence in their market updates on ANC.
  • Management also hereby apologizes to John Mangun, who was considered for advisorship. But a recent Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey indicated that only exactly 4.01% of investors consider bald or balding analysts credible. So sorry John.

We’ll be releasing a bulletin on the IPO before the end of November. Meanwhile, you can visit the SEC and PSE sites for rumors and gossip.

    Your timing is just right. When the price of oil hits 120$/barrel, and more scandals rock the government, the market prices of tomatoes – as well as onions – should shoot up.

    We’ll advise management of your new crop John. But don’t over do it, otherwise you’ll end up like this guy. By the way, we noted your sober take on Glorietta 2. Good.
