A Philippine History
and Pop Culture (Re)Mix
By Kyzia Maramara
June 12 this year doesn’t only mean commemorating the 120th Independence Day of our beloved Philippines, it also means we can once again fuse history and pop culture and create gags and unique humor only Pinoys will understand.
The viral trend #RP612fic, a recurring hashtag every 12th of June, once again made us laugh this year in spite of the gloomy weather. Filipinos wittily participated resulting in tweets that will go down in history, much like Rizal calling Josephine ‘baby girl.’ Check out this year’s funniest!
