Oh boy…

On Monday, Rodrigo Duterte — the mayor of southern Davao city — is expected to win the Philippines national election.

As indicated by an unofficial vote count, the politician received more than 14.4 million votes. Former Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas comes in second place with 8.6 million votes.

According to William Yu of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting:

"We can call it now because the gap got so big relative to the maximum the No. 2 can get."

While the results are not technically official, the group is accredited by the Commission on Elections to conduct a "quick count." Final results are expected Tuesday.

Duterte — who has been dubbed the "Donald Trump of the East" — has run an extremely controversial campaign. As we reported, the 71-year-old made headlines when he made a rape joke about Australian lay minister Jacqueline Hamill at a rally.

He has also been accused of making homophobic and violent remarks — including the promotion of death squads. He has become so infamous, John Oliver did a piece on him for Last Week Tonight.

This is so shocking.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is dead at 46 years old, apparently succumbing to cancer, according to the Associated Press.

The former politician, married with two young children, has died after a year and a half of treatment for what is being reported as a "rare and aggressive" cancer first diagnosed while he was running for re-election to lead the Canadian city.

Ford's family released a very brief statement about his death on Tuesday, describing him as "a dedicated man of the people," and revealing that they would not be making any statements to the media.

After undergoing surgeries to remove the cancer, only to see it spread, Ford had been in palliative care at the time of his death.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Renata, and his two young children Stephanie and Douglas, as well as other family members who have survived him, including his mother Diane, brothers Doug and Randy, and sister Kathy.

It's Groundhog Day! Even Though He's Wrong More Often Than Not… What Did Punxsutawney Phil Predict??

Filed under: Mama NatureCuteness!Groundhog

Punxsutawney Phil is probably one of the least reliable weathermen in history.

Though we're pretty sure Phil hasn't adjusted for global warming over the past decade… so maybe it's not entirely his fault.

Regardless, people still rely on the little guy to predict just how much winter is left.

So, when the little critter popped out of his home in Gobbler's Knob (heh heh), Pennsylvania, what did he see?
