THE MORE THE MANYER! Pinoy Cliches and Other Words of Wisdumb
Illustrated by: Elbert Or
Well, well, well, look do we have here…a book to tickle everybody’s funnybone–natives, balikbayans, and foreigners alike. This light-hearted collection of hilarious Pinoy malapropisms features such doozies as “Keep that bear in mind,” “You’re barking at the wrong dog,” and “What the fuss??!!” Elbert Or’s sidesplitting cartoons will have readers eating their hat out. The book also offers an instructive index of correct English idioms for the benefit of our anguished, language-challenged readers.
Readers, eat your hat out! Here’s a book “true good” to be true, sure to delight natives, balikbayans, and foreigners alike. Armed with “dartboard English” tactics, trust the ingenious Pinoy to transform time-honored cliches into discombobulating idioms that make even the die-hard stoics among us sit up and laugh. So come let’s join us! Turn the pages and lap up the lopsided logic and phonetic calisthenics of the pun-intending Pinoy!
