And what an "evolution" HG's PUTO has been thru, from nekkid "baby"-Puto with pee-pee sticking forth [tagged on TRE] to the current demonized creature with grown out-stretched wings! And what a body count he's scored too! FYI: In conjunction with the launch is the Launch Party @ CIRCA, Eastwood at 10pm (with DJs Regiel, BOGBOY and Master Jon + MC Bounce, MC TIU and MC Predator).
I had first asked Huck Gee why the name "Puto" (back in '08) - to which his answer was: "t's a play on words, a mix up of Spanish slang, old Italian and Philippino. In Italian "Putto" is the name of the cute little babies with wings that showed up in renaissance period paintings. "Puto" is Spanish for male prostitute/bitch. And in the Philippines PUTO is a cute white dessert, a tasty filipino steamed rice cake and is very, very popular. Yum."
