This is a little late, I wasn’t paying attention. It turns out that the explosion that hit Glorietta 2 mall last Friday may not have been a bomb blast, but a combination of diesel gas fumes and methane from sewage ignited by electrical switches. Read The Washington Post, then Carlos Celdran’s tirade on the shit that urban developers pass off as progress.
Shit literally blew up. It wasn’t terrorists, it was crap. The mall was full of shit. GMA-7′s “Glorietta Ground Zero” was a pile of caca. All those paeans to urban development: they were talking shit.
So shit is a metaphor for shit. Horrendous enough that 11 people are dead and over 100 injured, but the absurdity.
The mall may have committed a suicide bombing.
Ricky, there’s your South Park episode.
