Independence Day means a lot of things to Filipinos. For some, it's a day to commemorate heroic acts and pay tribute to those who helped us secure our freedom.
But for others, it's a day when creative minds come up with hilarious memes on social media combining history with pop culture references.
A netizen using the Twitter handle @immerielle16 summed it up best by posting:
"I love June 12, not only because it's independence day, but also because Filipinos can channel their creativity and wits, and impeccable humor despite the present problems of our nation through #RP612Fic"
