In Honor of Today's Oblation Run

Every year, UP's initiation involves lots of naked men (with probably paper bags covering their faces) running around the university.

In light of one of the presidential candidates for next year, I'd just like to mention that the model for UP's oblation (the statue of a naked man with arms open wide) is none other than Fernando Po Sr.

And while I'm at it, in an ironic twist of fate (Filipino style), Fernando Po Jr. isn't really Fernando Po Jr.; it's really his brother's name. Of course the real Jr. eventually had to change his name for obvious reasons.
