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.

Ako budoy

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!

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:

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:


Sinong nakakita?

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:

According to Mocha, Mayon is in Naga.

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.
