LOOK: Duterte puts to shame glove-wearing generals in ‘boodle fight’

Jun 18, 2017 @ 14:44

Has the military’s top brass gone soft?

A photo of President Rodrigo Duterte heartily joining ‎a “boodle fight” with top officers of the 4th Infantry Division Command Post in Butuan City last June 17, 2017 showed at least two military officers putting on plastic gloves.

A boodle fight is part of a military tradition where soldiers and their officers gather around a pile of food spread out on banana leaves.

The diners are expected to use their hands to grab and stuff themselves up before the food runs out as a show of brotherhood and equality.

While Duterte and Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana didn’t mind using their bare hands in the food splurge, two officers beside them apparently felt squeamish having to touch their food.

They should have probably asked for a spoon and fork if they didn’t want to eat “kamayan” style.
