The deplorable state of the English language in the Philippines (and other weaboo insanities)


If you've seen the storm brewing in one of the pages I commented on Facebook, then I don't need any superfluous introductions. If you haven't, you're missing half your life. I just find it funny that it's already been 3 days since that post and people haven't moved on. Is the event really that groundbreaking? Will it solve the country's multi-billion dollar financial debt? Will it feed the entire lot of Filipinos? 

I dunno if I'm to be amused or if I need to feel pity towards kids these days who can't write simple English to save their sorry behinds. Frankly speaking, I'm not insulted because I was called a bitch and a whole slew of other names. What's insulting was that these kids couldn't even hurl a single decent and coherent ignominy without making the grammar Nazis writhe in agony. I was cringing half the time I was reading their futile attempts to make me feel peeved. 

I really don't give a flying batshit about their stupid event, nor do I feel a single iota of remorse for calling their event stupid. What bothers me is that these kids waste their time & energy organizing questionable events that aren't even well thought of. Seriously...minors cosplaying in a bar? Paid freebies? 350 bucks worth of tickets? Holy apeshit, Batman!

What's even worse is that they don't even give a crap about grammar & punctuation. I don't even know if I'm going to laugh my ass off or offer a prayer for their lost souls. At this rate, the Philippines is going to the dogs. Believe it.

You want to speak Nihonggo? BE A KATANA!

Thank the gods I've weaned myself of anything remotely weaboo-ish.

  1. That's like telling the English and the Americans and a whole slew of English speaking countries that their language is not real. Yay for smart kids.

    Love your AVPM reference.
