Spongebob is the go to character for underwater inspired memes
Another one from Finding Nemo
There were also memes that showed Pinoy fishermen throwing back fish that they caught after the fish presented their Chinese passports.
There were also some fish sporting Chinese characters to prove their nationality. It’s always more fun in the Philippines and we believe it. (ANGEL ONG)
