Next To Ugliness
“Yabang! 'Kala mo kung sino kang gwapo!” (Prick! It's not like you're handsome!)
A commonly used phrase in the Philippines. And a very stupid one.
Although being mayabang is not too much of a good thing, I don't think being guwapo would ever excuse someone from being such an arrogant arse. Que ikaw pa ang pinakamagandang lalaki sa balat ng lupa, ang mayabang ay mayabang, at ang mayabang ay pangit. (Whether you're the most handsome man on earth, an arrogant prick is an arrogant prick, and arrogant pricks are ugly.)
