After our series Oral Origins wherein we researched the roots of the popular curse words in the Philippines, we welcome you to News Hugot, a new segment that will provide a creative outlet for people to forget the news for a while and to focus on their feelings.
Our opening salvo is the series of deaths under investigation in the country. We feel strongly about this topic and we discussed it in detail through these articles: Their Last Moments on Earth and Nanlaban. Our team wishes to make clear that this is not an intent to make fun of all the victims of these gruesome situations. This is a coping strategy to deal with stressful events that are happening around us.
With that said, we take off with some terms that have really saturated our news programs and social media timelines during the last couple of days. Over at Twitter, we encountered the trending hashtag #ExtraJudicialFeelings and found this very engaging infographic created by Juanderboy.
Bam Alegre posted this infographic over at Reddit and upon reaching the front page, the witty wagon was on. Reddit user redkinoko had one of the most upvoted terms in the subreddit — vigilandi!
Here are other noteworthy contributions from witty netizens. See more of the discussion over at Reddit Philippines. Join us if you will.
