The Ruben Balane Show. Episode 2

Thu, 17 Jun 2010.

More words of wisdom from the great Ruben Balane:

While discussing the case of Bonilla v. Barcena:

Here the heirs of Barcena said, "Your Honor, our mother is dead, and we will be substituting her because we are her heirs." Sabi naman n'ung judge, "No, you cannot, because your mother is dead." Sabi naman n'ung heirs, "E kaya nga we will be substituting her e, kasi nga she is dead, and we are her heirs! Sa'n ka ba nag-aral, sa Ateneo?"

Boom. Haha.

*Prof. Balane is also a member of the (thee) Ateneo Law School Faculty. Which I guess gives him the right to do this.

The Ruben Balane Show

Thu, 10 Jun 2010.

Professor Ruben Balane, referring to the word "decedent":

It's pronounced "di-see-dent". You don't say "di-si-dent". A dissident is one who takes up arms against the government. Well, unless you're an Abu Sayyaf, and you get killed by government troops, then you become a dissident decedent.
