Part of being Filipino is having that unique sense of humor even in the bleakest of times and the situation we’re in right now is certainly one. Maybe it’s just us Pinoys channeling our frustration into jokes to make other people laugh and forget for a while, maybe it’s us brushing the hardships away for a moment with a few humorous posts because we’re all clowns with this government anyway, or maybe it’s because we’re all fun-loving individuals who will suffer if we can’t laugh. Whichever the reason, it’s a relief to know that even if bad news pop up like popcorn everywhere on an hourly basis, some Pinoys out there are ready to put a humorous twist so we can all chuckle as we scroll through timelines.
Behold, the Filipino wit and humor during the lockdown:
Pinoys singing heartwarming songs while they’re quarantined in their houses
You’ve seen videos of Italians singing from their windows and this pianist in Barcelona jamming with a saxophonist neighbor but have you heard Pinoys singing acapella from their homes? These Filipinos in Quezon City found a way to uplift their neighborhood’s otherwise glum spirits. Those lyrics hit home.

No pasok? No problem!
Your sibling/child still has online classes, right? Then they still deserve their baon! It’s a relief we can do everything online these days.
You can visit continents inside your house if you look for them hard enough
Yung mga teacher mag-a-adjust
It’s graduation season soon and if this coronavirus won’t let up, universities and graduates are faced with a dilemma: what about graduation? It’s a good thing this video provided the solution. Don’t forget social distancing though!
It gets worse…
What’s worse than a door-to-door graduation? A Messenger graduation, that’s what. You won’t even get to see your classmates or throw your graduation cap. No matter, there are a lot of GIFs for that and besides, look at the bright side, you won’t have to pay for new clothes and hair and makeup!
Be proud of your online classes!
