House Of Bong
WHAT’S in a nickname? Quite a lot in the Philippines, where two candidates standing for parliament have fought a bitter legal battle over the right to be called “Bong”.
Voters can choose their favoured candidate by nickname alone, and bowling champion Olivia “Bong” Coo feared losing vital votes to movie star Ramon “Bong” Revilla in the race for a Senate seat in upcoming polls.
Bongs in the senate. I bet Gough Whitlam wishes he thought of that.
