“By the beard of Mars, the top deity of Mount Olympus, the Philippines by this time should be convulsed in revolution or civil war, The dictator Ferdinand Marcos way back in the 60s declared the nation was ‘sitting atop a social volcano’ which could erupt any time.”
Ok, another gem from Teddy Benigno. The actual phrases are “by the beard of the prophet,” and of course, Mars isn’t the top deity of Olympus. It would be Zeus (Jupiter to the Romans). Mars should be Ares (Mars is the Roman version).
A little knowledge….
