My baby returns

In 2001 or 2002, I forget when, in the Tsinoy.com forum, a thread on the silly place names acronyms was started -- ITALY, I trust and love you, JAPAN, Just always pray at night etc.. Eventually we ran out of the existing ones and started making acronyms up for place names that didnt have any, and I took on the task of coming up with one for the motherland, and wrote this
PHILIPPINES: Pumping hot, I love it. Please, please, I need erotic stimulation.
as my contribution. And thus I set this rather silly acronym free in cyberspace for everyone's edification. Imagine my joy when just last night, in a plurk by Marocharim, he posted for all and sundry the same acronym. It has come back to me, it's father, after all these years.
(No I have no documented proof that I am the acronym's dad. I went by the handle OrangeEgg at the time. I tried looking for it in the Tsinoy.com archives but I dont think they archive posts that old. You have to take it on faith since we're pals and all.)

since no one else in this blog has a Plurk, we would need to ask if he credited you, or didn't lay sole claim on the term at least. or else there would be hell to pay (spam email!!!!)

Nothing like that. It's in the public domain. I googled the phrase and it's everywhere. I have only dkny.ca as my witness and the other Tsinoy.com pioneers. :-D
