jejemons versus the DepEd. maganda 'toh.

I made a promise to myself in the premise of being good that I will not say anything against Jejemons (again), but opportunities and issues around me prompted me to say something about them. Har. I overheard from Ms. Anna about the Jejemon vs. DepEd thingy and, I'm sorry guys, I promised myself I won't sleep 'til I blurted out something regarding this touchy subject. Wahaha...Click HERE.

Well, if you do not come across with Jejemons, it's either you're on the other side of the world, a foreigner, an alien, or just plainly an ignoramus walking on limbo or covered by the darkness of your own cave. Hello, wake up, read the papers, glue your eyes on TV, or just plainly Google the word for a help. To be left behind these days is the last shameful thing that could happen to you. Read blogs. They flood their roster of posts. But for the sake of informing you, Jejemon is a cognomen for those godforsaken people (previously emos before, I think, gosh, they evolve so fast) who are fond of shorcutting texts or words or the exact opposite, exaggeratedly elongating the words by adding the letters in h,w,z. It's tedious to dissect their anatomy, so please spare me from the effort, it's your homework. Google Jejemon. Now na!

Bloggers were obviously against these misspelling perpetrators, and have seriously wage wars against them. Raising my hand. Lol. Now, they increasingly alarmed everyone, even our pedagogic vanguard, the Department of Education. It's like a courtroom drama now, Jejemons versus the Republic of the Philippines, er, the Department of Education. What can I say, this subculture's ravaging the current spelling and reading populace to the point they become imbecile and phobic to words with mediocre spelling. They meet a new word, and it becomes a "Night in the Elm Street" scenario already. Jejemons are ruining what our forefathers or ancestors tried to collate and piled in what we call now dictionaries. Shame on them. Pokemons are cute but Jejemons are not, and should be happy to stay in their own "Malice in Wanderland" world.

Anyway, we can always loathe them, but at the end of the day, we can just close our eyes and hope they will change. Before they infiltrate the system of the Pentagon. Char.

not myself tonight

How about the jejehybrids? half jejemon, half jejebuster combined. I evoke we should admonish those suckers, too! They are arduously hard to detect. They always change style contingent on who they blab to. i think they are the R3aL EnEmIes! ^_^y h3yo, sowee pF0h.

Wala pa naman akong nakitang sobrang seryosong ginawa ng mga jejemon, di ba sila-sila rin lang naman ang magkatext?

I saw this teacher being interviewed regarding the topic, she said nagdeteriorate yung spelling ability ng mga bata kaya dapat tapusin na ang jejemon stuff na ito. Pero she did not say kung ang cause ba ng misspelling ay dahil ginawang jejemon yung spelling? Or talagang mali ang spelling? Kasalanan ng jejemons, or ng education system?

The first time I heard DepEd being on an all-out war against jejemons I was like, PINATULAN? Same scenario with ME vs Idiot#4. Bwahaha...

Yan ang aking opinyon at inadd na kita sa blogroll!

I am an ANTI-JEJEMON too.

Let's kill them all XD

Sa opinyon ko huwag na lang natin sanayin sarili natin sa pag tatype ng ma ala jejemon style kasi pag nasanay tayo baka kahit sa work o sa pag aaral ganon pa rin gawin natin, sarili din natin ang mapapahiya.diba? Sarili din natin ang mag aangat sa sarili natin. Isa pa talagang may jejebuster pa noh? Well, kanya kanyang trip yan. kumbaga respetuhan na lang. yun lang masasabi ko.

napanood ko ung news na yan kagabi at natawa na lang ako, wth! pinatulan na ng DepEd?! ahahay, sabi pa ng DepEd, mas dadagdagan ang school projects or school works lalo na sa mga pampublikong paaralan na may kinalaman sa tamang spelling at grammar para mahasa ang mga estudyante at para nga daw mapuksa ang mga jejemon, so ibang level na ito. naawa ako bgla sa ibang mga estudyanteng nadamay, pinahirapan pa lalo.

jejemon busting is a form of fascism which is why all the powers that be have aligned against the jejemon... the true revolutionary spirit is alive in the lone jejemon who disregards all rules in favor of expression.
