MANILA, Jan. 17 -– The recently-launched book "Stupid is Forever" by Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago set a record as the fastest-selling and best-selling book of 2014, according to National Book Store.

Launched only last December 3, Santiago’s book was sold-out and the hashtag #StupidisForever trended worldwide during its first day in the market.

Netizens have expressed on Facebook and Twitter that it was in demand, making them reserve for it until it becomes available again in National Book Store.

As of last January 11, “Stupid is Forever” had sold 110,000 copies since its launch. National Book Store also put it in the Number 1 spot in their list of booksellers this month.

“Stupid is Forever” is a collection of jokes, one-liners, pick-up lines, comebacks, and speeches delivered and/or curated by Santiago.

The joke book also features illustrations by talented artists such as Cj de Silva-Ong also known as the “Promil Kid”, Manix Abrera of “Kiko Machine”, Elbert Or, Rob Cham and more of the Philippines' best young illustrators.

Santiago is well-known for her catchy pick-up lines before she starts her speeches and for her feisty and funny one-liners.

Due to popular demand, Santiago will hold a Meet and Greet again for “Stupid is Forever” on January 22 from 2 p.m.-4 p.m. at National Book Store Glorietta.

The registration will start at 11 a.m. and 500 signed copies will be sold and buyers, as well as previous buyers, can have the chance to have a picture taken with Santiago. (PNA)
