Hilarious jeepney sign board catches netizens’ attention
CEBU CITY, Philippines— Taking public transportation can be exhausting and hilarious at the same time.
Kyle Dave Cortes, 19, found himself laughing after he thought of something while looking at the sign board of the Public Utility Jeepney which he boarded on his way to his school in Cebu City at around 6 a.m. on September 12, Thursday.
The sign board read, “Ayala-SM.” After reading it, something popped up his mind, which he thought was funny.
“I thought it was “AYALAISM” and I thought it was really a religion. That is why Hinduism, Buddhism and Judaism came up to my mind. So I looked back, It (to find out that what was written on the sign board) was AYALA●SM,” Cortes told CDN Digital.
Cortes, a Mandaue City resident, recalled that he was taking a PUJ with route number 04L from Barangay Mabolo in Cebu City on his way to the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) located along Salinas Drive in Cebu City when he took a picture of the PUJ sign board. He is enrolled as a first year social work student at USPF.
He was seated behind the driver and fell asleep since he was travelling early for his 7 a.m. class. When he opened his eyes shortly before he reached his destination, the sign board were the first things that he saw.
Cortes said that he took a photo of the sign board for fun and added some religion to the sign board the posted this on his social media page for his friends to also see.
His September 12 post has generated 30,000 shares; 12, 000 reactions and 43 comments as of noontime today, September 14.
Cortes said that he did not expect his post to go viral.| dcb
