“WHOGOAT” has been trending in the internet lately. It was originated from the Filipino word “hugot” which means pull out. It is usually associated with bitter emotions. It is also used to express feelings towards the people you loved and mostly, to the people who caused you pain. “Whogoat” lines can also be generated from social issues or can just come from typical conversations.
Some of the “hugot” lines of the Filipinos that I translated into English are the following:
- It’s just because someone is poisoned by milk tea, you concluded that all milk tea have poison.
- In the name of love, when one man hurts you, you already think that all man will hurt you.
- Nothing is forever! (one of the favorite lines of those who have failed relationships) J
- Do not be too confident that he loves you. As forces of wine, he could speak to you, he may also vomit.
Usually, the best “whogoat” line comes from people who fell in love but failed. Even the local artist have their own lines which they publicized on television.
Here in our country, one of the best purveyors of “whogoat” lines is Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago. Her “whogoat” lines were compiled in her book, “STUPID IS FOREVER”. It is a book that tackles political, social and emotional issues using lines that are appealing to the public.
The “whogoat” lines that she had written in her book include the following.
- Why are some people in a hurry to fall in love? We can never tell.
- Meeting the right person at the wrong place and at the wrong time is wrong.
- Experiencing love in the most unexpected way is exciting. So why don’t we just wait?
- Love never runs out.
- As they say, love moves in mysterious ways and you can’t hurry love. You just have to wait.
Whatever “whogoats/hugot” you have right now, everything will turn out fine so just live, love, and laugh. There are lots of reasons to smile and be inspire.
Never lose sight of love. Always in love with love. It is a beautiful thing to have.
