This is a conversation inside my head. Half fiction and half true.
Me: Jejemon ka ba?
(inside my head: my god shayne you can’t just ask people if they’re jejemon! hahaha)
Lawrence: Hindi ah. hahaha
Jejemons are the ones who doesn’t respect the words and don’t share the same passion with people who love and respect words, grammar, syntax and punctuations with all their hearts. The Jejemons are the ones who loves to add inappropriate letters to short words to make them appear longer and harder to read. The Jejemons, some of them might be sadistic in nature because they give agony to the readers who can’t seem to understand what they are saying.
The etymology of the word jejemon is the words JEJE + MON. Jeje came from the HEHE laugh in social networking sites, chat conversations and text messages. Instead of saying HEHE, they say JEJE, because maybe they feel that it’s funny but it really is not. And the word MON came from the suffix of the very popular animated series POKEMON. Using the Filipino’s creative mind, they mixed these two words and come up with a very “racial” tag amongst the anti-proper grammar and spelling usage, the JEJEMONS.
Bad news, the jejemons are now multiplying so beware. Whenever you see one, please avoid talking to them, or at least be patient enough to tell them that you don’t consider talking to any jejemons out there because you can’t tolerate any hair pulling and headach, do you?
