Last Aug. 18 at De La Salle University, I delivered (in Filipino) the inaugural lecture of the Br. Andrew Gonzalez Lecture Series. I entitled my lecture “Ang Kabobohan ni Bob Ong, o Dapat Bang Hiranging Pambansang Alagad ng Sining si Bob Ong” (“The Idiocy of Bob Ong, or Should Bob Ong be Declared a National Artist”). Of course, kabobohan is a play on the penname Bob Ong, which is in turn a play on the words Bobong Pinoy, the title of the website that started the anonymous author on the road to what has become the bestselling publishing phenomenon of our time.
