Ejercito Family Convention

Since Jinggoy has been all the news I was reminded of a story I read 14 years ago. I tried to find it using Google and alas no where to be seen. I was prepared to type it from memory then luckily it was sent to the email that I had back then. Here it is in all it's glory. 


  3,000 Ejercitos meet in Erap's residence in Greenhills for a "Ejercitos Are Not Stupid" Convention. President Erap says, "We are all here today to prove to the world that the clan of Ejercitos are not stupid. Can I have a volunteer?" Jinggoy gingerly works his way through the crowd and steps up to the stage. Erap asks him, "What is 15 plus 15?" After 15 or 20 seconds Jinggoy says, "Eighteen!! Obviously everyone is a little disappointed.Then 3,000 Ejercitos start cheering, 

"Give him another chance! Give him another chance!" 

 Erap says, "Well since we've gone to the trouble of getting 3,000 of you in one place and we have the world-wide press and global broadcast media here, gee, uh, I guess we can give him another chance." So he asks, "What is 5 plus 5?" After nearly 30 seconds Jinggoy eventually says, "Ninety?" Erap is quite perplexed, looks down and just lets out a dejected sigh-everyone is disheartened - Jinggoy starts crying and the 3,000 Ejercitos begin to yell and wave their hands shouting,


 Erap , unsure whether or not he is doing more harm than damage, eventually says, "Ok! Ok! Just one more chance-- What is 2 plus 2?" Jinggoy closes his eyes, and after a whole minute eventually says, "Four?". Throughout the stadium pandemonium breaks out as all 3,000 Ejercitos jump to their feet, wave their arms, stomp their feet and scream...
