For every mishap, there’s a hugot.

Filipinos cannot seem to get enough of those bitter, but witty, heartbreaking lines whenever a misfortune strikes.


The latest of which was the infamous “uncoupling” of the Metro Rail Transit 3 (MRT-3) train on Thursday, which has drawn lots of hugot lines that keep on coming even the incident happened more than a day ago.

The momentum has kept on going on social media as another MRT-3 train broke down again during rush hour Friday morning, prompting the unloading of passengers in Santolan Annapolis southbound station.


As of 4 p.m. on Friday, 2 million users continue to talk about “MRT” on Facebook, many of them poking fun on the latest series of incidents and posting the most brilliant and funniest one-liners for everyone to relish.

Even former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay jumped into the #MRTHugot bandwagon and shared his piece.

Here’s another wave of #MRTHugot tweets you should not miss:
