17 People Crucified in Good Friday Re-enactment in the Philippines

Oh snap!  My parents are in the Philippines right now!

Today, over yonder, 17 people were crucified in a gruesome re-enactment of Good Friday!  It's an annual event that dates back to the fifties and attracts thousands of gawkers...

Many of the people who do it say that it's a "calling" and that they are paying spiritual thanks for something or another - anything from being spared in an earthquake to surviving a fall from a building.

More than 80% of the Philippines is Catholic.

My ma's filipino, yo!  Not to sound too westernized but if she pulls this shit Imma freak!  (WARNING - these pics are gnarly!  I spared ya the video though.)
