Philippine Leader Compares His Love Life to Coke
The bachelor president of the Philippines is lamenting that his love life is like Coke — it's gone from regular to zero.
Fifty-one-year-old President Benigno Aquino III poked fun at himself while addressing members of the Philippine community in Beijing during his state visit to China. Like a standup comedian, he opened up by broaching one of the most mundane questions people often ask him.
Aquino said Wednesday: "Someone asked me, how is your love life? So I said, it's like Coca-Cola. ... Before, it was regular, then it became light, now it's zero."
The audience then burst into laughter.
Since taking office last year, Aquino has broken up with several women, often blaming journalists' prying eyes for ruining his romances.
