Abolish Binibining Pilipinas Beauty Pageant Now

It's final: the world has called for the Philippine organization who is behind the Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant that it should once and for all abolish this non-sense contest as it has brought more shame to the Filipino people than any scandalous event in the known history of the Philippine republic.

To add salt to the injury, the YouTube videos of the Bibibining Pilipinas are posted in millions of blogs and websites and forum sites around the world.

As if the injury is not enough, Google has disclosed in its search trend statistics that the term "Binibining Pilipinas" is now one of the most popular search keywords this month.

Based from blogs, forums and personal comments of both foreign and Filipino-oriented web sites, the consensus is so clear that there is no need to reconsider of the bold recommendation: abolish the Binibining Pilipinas Beauty Pageant once and for all.

One blog comment says that the Binibining Pilipinas Beauty Pageant will bring horrible effect to the multi-billion dollar outsourcing industry in the Philippines.

The Philippines has been recipient of thousands of outsourced jobs from multi-national corporations who believe and trust the English proficiency of the Filipino people.

That kind of reputation of being "excellent in English" is now put in question. The recent Bb Pilipinas has hurt so much the country's economy that its organizers must start packing up their office files and padlock its headquarter for good.

Gone are the days of Charlene Gonzales and Gloria Diaz. Who could follow their illustrious record?

One forum commentator suggests that if the organizers of the Binibining Pilipinas cannot abolish the now shameful stage parade, it should at least provide a basic English grammar tutorial to candidates, or better yet, give the girls a hardbound book entitled: "OMG, How is my English?"
