Here Are the Best
By Tynne De Leon
We’re still in the first quarter of the year but a lot of memes have already made their mark on our social media feeds. Considering how the internet can become intolerable, we consider these as blessings. We can’t wait to see what’s next.
For now, here are the ones that made us laugh harder than we should, and we might or might not have reposted some of these:
8. Sinigang: The Pambansang Ulam
Origin: Bagani, the latest Filipino historical teleserye of ABS-CBN, received a lot of backlash due its casting of “half-Pinoys”, and misappropriation of an ICC/IP term. Lead star Liza Soberano, who is half-American, replied to one tweet with this quote:
Thus, the sinigang meme was born.
7. Selfie Muna
Origin: This meme began with this one post:
Selfie muna bago manghabol ng kapitbahay hehe
/Oski David David David
Everyone found it hilarious, so it was followed by other entertaining versions, which included other animals and people:

6. Aling Vicky
Origin: CinemaBravo, a Facebook page dedicated to movies, posted this clip of 2001’s movie Baliktaran: Si Ace at Si Daisy.
“Aling Vicky! Aling Vicky! Anak niyo, nahulog sa imburnal!”

This ultimate question: ‘who/where is the real Aling Vicky’ went viral on both Facebook and Twitter, with people considering Aling Vicky as their spirit animal.

People even found (not) Aling Vicky!
The Emperor with the current viral sensation. Lol
5. Evil Patrick
Origin: Spongebob Squarepants characters naturally lend themselves to memes, and this one is the latest in the bunch.

We’re all Patrick.
4. Grade school
Origin: We have no idea how this one started, but it’s undoubtedly one of the funniest memes so far, plus it triggers happy nostalgia. I mean, just look at these memes:
Di maalala ni Dao Ming Si si Shan Cai sa Meteor Garden 2

Raise your hand if you remember doing them!
3. This “world-class vape” talent
Origin: Who wouldn’t know about Joven Olvido, the “vape guy” from Pilipinas Got Talent? If you’re one of the (unfortunate) people who didn’t get to watch it, here it is:
Thus, the memes:
Yung napadaan ka sa barbeque-han. pic.twitter.com/87Alp3Lzrc

Yup, he did that.
2. Cat meme
Origin: We don’t know how this one broke out either, but even non-cat owners laughed at this one:

1. Mayon Volcano
Origin: Mayon Volcano’s eruption weeks ago was understandably a huge concern for many Filipinos—including Mocha Uson. She’s probably so concerned that she moved the location of the volcano:
Kaya pala tinatawag na “Active Volcano” ang Mayon. Kasi kahit saan siya gumagala.
According to ASec. MOCHA USON BLOG, Mayon Volcano is currently in Naga City.

Netizens are quick to create a meme out of it, of course.
