n.— «The very term “trapo” must have been invented because of Jose de Venecia. A trapo through and through even before trapo entered the lexicon, he was already a trapo in Ferdinand Marcos’s Batasang Pambansa, the martial law era “parliament.” » —“Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil” by Dean Jorge Bocobo Philippine Commentary (Philippines) May 31, 2004.
