24 election-related memes and posts that’s not #HardToGets if you’re Pinoy

Smart-Strip-Ad (1)

The 2016 Philippine elections will forever be known as the “social media elections,” not only because our candidates and their PR people utilized the power of online networks to the fullest, but also because photo editing apps and hashtags made it easy for anyone’s meme to spread like butter on toast and find its way into our personal news feeds. The same can also be said of our status messages and tweets. After all, we’re not called the world’s social media capital for nothing!

Here are 24 election-related memes and posts we saw in our timelines that’s proof that Pinoys can make even the most serious of things light and funny. Other countries might find this #HardToGets, but we certainly don’t!

Let’s start with the most well-rounded candidate of them all. An all-around handyman. How can you not love this guy?

Remember that time when Sandro Marcos was called out on his subject-verb agreement?

Then came the younger Marcos’s response. Turned out it wasn’t really him but a parody account.
