The Baylor University Men's Choir flying on Emirates Airlines gave an impromptu performance of "Da Coconut Nut" composed by Filipino musician Ryan Cayabyab on their flight home from Kenya.

Singing and dancing, the 75-member of the Baylor University Men's Choir performed Ryan Cayabyab's song "Da Coconut Nut" to the delight of the passengers and crew.

"Da Coconut Nut" was popularized by Ryan Cayabyab's group Smokey Mountain back in the 1990's. The choral arrangement of the song has become popular and performed by choirs around the world. The video posted by Emirates on Facebook has been viewed over 2.5 million times.



It's a really great performance and I checked out their actual performance of "Da Coconut Nut" on Youtube. It's not very clear but it's great nonetheless.






If you're curious, here is the original version of the song "Da Coconut Nut" by Smokey Mountain

BIR's Disgusting Ad Against Doctors

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in its effort to increase tax collection puts out ads and press release identifying sectors of society who they believe are not paying proper taxes. They do this by shaming people and business through these ads.

On their latest ad, they targeted doctors by showing them as burdens to society for not paying their share of taxes. The image is a doctor making over a million Pesos being carried on the shoulder of a lowly teacher making much less but paying full tax.

BIR Ad against Doctors

Based on this ad, the BIR is saying that the doctors and other professionals are the burden to society because they don't pay their taxes.

Apparently, the hundreds and thousands of pesos they spent learning their profession and countless hours of study and upgrading they do every year to save and improve people's lives are worth nothing.

Maybe there is a reason people don't like paying their taxes, because all they see is endless traffic, bad road, bad government and the only people getting rich are the politicians.

Based on this ad, it looks like politicians who sing and dance on stage to cuddle votes and steal the people's money to build their castles are the pious ones. Not even Janet Napoles, the Euro Generals and other people who have been found to have stolen billions of pesos of public money were even considered to be the reason for the lack of funds of the government.

The doctors of course did not take this sitting down, they came out with their own ad which they circulated on social networks.

Ask for Respect BIR

The BIR ad clearly shows how an idiotic government tries to fool the poor by showing that the reason they are still poor and wallowing in misery is because of the middle class who don't pay their taxes.

This ad is dangerous because it creates class warfare pitting the poor against the diminishing middle class. While the upper class, oligarchs and politicians are laughing all the way to their mansions.
