Grabbing everything fantastic

Re: Forms of history
Yesss … Silvestre … there’s history in ’em thar filthy shorelines and river banks of Pangasinan!
It’s questionable/debatable, the “written” history of Pangasinan, at times, on the grounds the penchant of the – Pangalatok(t) – to grab on everything fantastic, and to shoved-up everybody’s ass to make it believable.
This character of the Pangalatok, to glorify things, that goes against all norms of proper human conduct, is – history – in itself.
Oral history …
Tong-tong Basilio, it is! It’s all in the horse’s mouth.
