    FUNDED by we know who and what country, ang tawag dito ng mga fraternity ay resbak. Bawal ang magturo at baka tayo’y ma-punso, pero MALAY natin at mayroon silang mga nababayaran sa atin. Sapagka’t mga pondong ginagamit ay galing din sa nakukuhang langis doon sa ating lupain na kanilang ina-angkin. Kaya lahat ay mag-ingat at mga hudas ay isiwalat, kapag nahuli ay ibigay kay Dirty Harry nang sa ganoon ay hindi na sila dumami.
