“Stupid is Forever” published by ABS-CBN Publishing, Inc., has become a phenomenal hit, scoring rave reviews and strings of positive posts all over social media from readers.
“I came up with this collection of jokes because sometimes we are being too serious about the issues facing our country today. I think if we laughed more, and took ourselves less seriously, the public debate would be much better,” said Sen. Santiago during the book launch last December 3.
