6/25/2003: Mud person festival



Yesterday was June 24 and that means a bunch of Filipinos were celebrating the feast day of John the Baptist like good Catholics everywhere.

But in one Filipino village, there has come about a tradition of covering one's self with mud and branches and stuff. Over time this has been noticed by tourists and so it has come to be the "Taong Putik Festival" -- taong putik meaning "mud person".



Men, women and children all cover themselves in mud, dried banana leaves and vines, and then they go pray, and then they have a parade down the main street.

Good times!

Dirty Catholics.

Great for atoning, refreshing, and minimizing large pores.

Yuck

definitely not my cup of tea. I'd rather a glass of champagne at the beauticians, thank you very much.

If you don't want to get dirty, you're not allowed to have an elephant, Leah.

elephant mud

Hey Bruce, a few years back now, I went to Thailand and spent the day riding, cleaning, playing, kissing etc etc the baby elephants. I had mud from heat to toe, but it was the best time I have ever had. I even went out for a late lunch after that in the same clothes I was in (mud and all) I really didn't want to change. I would have slept out in the dark to be with them all. Spiders and all.

That's fun mud. Can I have my elephant now?

Aren't these the guys from Apocalypse Now? You know, from the end of the movie, with Kurtz?



quzah  Thursday Jun 26 04:53 AM

They look like an elite group of Unarmed Special Forces. Except that guy in the lower picture. He looks too out of shape. Maybe he's a General.

Quzah.

This is why I'm a Pagan...Christian faiths overlook the spiritual aspect of nude mud baptismal celebrations...

Wow! That would make me a real dirty old man.
