MANILA -- Comedian Vice Ganda went on a tirade at netizens going gaga over “selfies,” or self-portraits taken through their smartphones and other gadgets.

In his show “Gandang Gabi Vice” on Sunday, the outspoken comedian particularly mocked those who would take and share selfies way "too often," even at the "most awkward situations."

“Nabubwisit ako sa ganyan. May kaibigan kasi ako, ang hilig sa selfie, konting utot, selfie. Masandal lang sa pader kahit sumasayaw, selfie,” he said.

“Bagong gising, 'di ba, selfie, tapos po-post sa Instagram 'just woke up.' Just woke up? Bago ka magmumog, picture inatupag! Tapos meron pa akong nabubwisit, nakita ko talaga nag-selfie sa Instagram, nakaganyan o (tulog) tapos nakalagay 'now sleeping.' Aminin niyo, may nag-i-Instagram na ganyan! Now sleeping? Matutulog ka na lang, nakapikit ka na, nanananaginip ka na, picture ka pa (bleep)! Niloloko niyo kami! Now sleeping, nakuha mo pang magganun-ganun?

"At saka nakakatawa 'yung selfie pero dalawa sila. Di ba selfie, isa nga lang ‘yun? Pansarili mo, selfie.

“‘Yung iba nga hanggang sa pagkain 'di ba, ito ‘yung plato, nakaganun sa plato. Tapos lalagay pa 'Lunch time.' Malamang, alas dose pa lang no! Ano, dinner na 'yun? Kakabwiset,” he said.

Vice Ganda's rant made waves online and made it to the top local trends on Twitter. -- ANC Alerts, July 8, 2013
