Do you like this story?
Pinoy pop culture has given birth to a new word: Jejemon. It is the newest subspecie in the Filipino society. To virgin ears and eyes, Jejemon might seem to be like Pokemon, although quite different. Jejemons crowd the Filipino society. They belong to a certain age bracket (heaven forbid, all of them should be less than 25, haha!), social stratum, and I'll help you how to spot the Jejemon. I think I'm an expert at this. Haha!
* Jejemons text and chat like this: e0w p0h. mZtAH nA U? The key to text like a Jejemon is to be random at your capitalization, replace letters that look like it(replace S with $), and shorten words as comprehensible as possible.
* They gazillion facebook and friendster albums. And mind you, all albums contain solo pics in different times and places! One album is for camwhoring in the beach, the other at school, one during birthday, and another one during just yet another random camwhoring session. The key to the ultimate Jejemon picture is the signature *Japan, Japan peace sign* and the emo-ish black colored fingernails covering the mouth in a shocked-like solo picture.
* They text like crazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy! They are always registered on unlimited texting, they use two phones (one Globe, the other Smart), and both phones are on unlimited texting.
If you find anyone who texts or chats with "e0w p0h," that's it, we got a Jejemon! Bye!
