jejemon craze

Dahil naglipana ang mga jejemons sa mga social networking site at pati na yata office namin ay nainvade na din, ito ang mga nakakatuwang marereseach mo sa internet kaka-google ng "what are jejemons".

1. Usually seen around social networking sites such as Friendster and Multiply, jejemons are individuals with low IQs who spread around their idiocy on the web by tYpFing LyK diZS jejejeje, making all people viewing their profile raise their eyebrows out of annoyance. Normal people like you and me must take a Bachelor of Arts in Jejetyping in order to understand said individuals, as deciphering their text would cause a lot of frustration and hair pulling.

2. Jejemons are not just confined to trying-hard Filipino gangsters and emos. A Jejemon can also include a variety of Latino-Hispanic fags who enjoy typing "jejejejeje" in a wider context, much to the disdain of their opponents in an internet MMORPG game such as Ragnarok andn DOTA.

3. Basically anyone with a low tolerance in correct punctuation, syntax and grammar. Jejemons are usually hated or hunted down by Jejebusters or the Grammar Nazis to eradicate their grammatical ways.

Jejemon - is basically a variation of homo sapiens sub-species Jeje that originates in the Asia-Pacific island nation the Philippines.
Jejes - are the pure and original form and is claimed to have originated in what we know today as Latin America.
Jejemonus Filiponensis - Jejemons' scientific name
Jejebet - is a combination of the English alphabet and counting numbers which, in a strange mix of character substitution, surprisingly makes words that are understandable only to the Jejes and Jejeologists
Jejeologists - normal people that study Jejemons
Jejeientists - normal people that study Jeje sciences
Jejebusters - normal people that act to eradicate the Jejemon population, also known as Grammar Nazis
Jejenism - the Jejemon religion; not to be confused with Jejemonism
Jejemonism - the belief that Jejemons are superior than normal people
Jejenese language - speaking language of Jejemons together with the Jejebet

HAVE YOU RECEIVED A text message like this: “Eow PowZ, mUsZtAh nHa?” If so, most likely you’ve had a “Jejemon” experience. It isn’t a new breed of Pokemon that Ash and Misty have found. This terminology has been popping up everywhere even in Facebook.

The Jejenese is not just confined to Pinoy Jejemons. Just before I wrote this, I played “Warcraft” and found a European opponent who enjoys typing “jejejeje” in a very wide context, much to my disdain as he sabotages my online quests. Another group of foreign Jejemons, although their Jejemonism seems so trivial to actually classify them as Jejemons, are the Thais who type “hahaha” this way: “5555.”

You will see a lot of these in your Thai friend’s Facebook status messages. Since, the number 5 translates to “ha” in Thai, as explained by my friend Pakorn Dokmai. I’m sure many of you have personal encounters with other foreign Jejemons, be in Manila or abroad. So we can assume that Jejemon is a worldwide phenomenon.
