Mocha Uson remained a trending topic even after she returned her Thomasian Alumni Award in government service to the University of Santo Tomas Alumni Association on Wednesday, January 24,
The assistant secretary of PCOO (Presidential Communications Operations Office) mistakenly said in one of her Facebook videos that Mayon Volcano was located in Naga, Camarines Sur instead of Legazpi, Albay.
Leave it to netizens to come up with some of the most hilarious responses to Mocha Uson’s Mayon Volcano boo-boo.

"Bayanihan" is often represented visually as a group or community of people moving the house of one of its members from one place to another, but here is a rare photo of a community moving the Mayon Volcano from Albay to Naga in Cam Sur.— Mitochondria ???? (@highreaching) January 24, 2018

Mocha later acknowledged her mistake and corrected herself during a live video on her Facebook page, where she also interviewed Taguig Mayor and Albayanon Lani Cayetano on relief efforts for those affected by Mayon's eruption.
While she mentioned several times in that video that Mayon volcano is indeed in Albay, a separate video clip was posted on Twitter where she said that Mayon is not in Naga, but in Bicol.
It was unclear which video this snippet came from.
