The Philippines is known for being the top Christian nation in Asia, with around 90% of its population being adherents. The Roman Catholic religion remains the most dominant in the nation and so Filipinos hold many traditions and practices rooted in their faith.
For example, the country celebrates Christmas unlike any other. Just imagine – they start playing carols in malls and radio stations as early as September! The festivities go on until the first Sunday of January, otherwise known as the Feast of The Three Kings.
Pretty hardcore, you say? Well, wait until you hear about how they observe Holy Week!
Some Filipino devotees, especially in the province of Pampanga, commemorate the sacrifice and sufferings of Jesus Christ by inflicting pains unto themselves. Some even go as far as getting crucified as an expression of repentance for their sins.
Seeing devotees on the streets, dressed in robes and crown of thorns is a common sight during Holy Week. Most of the time, they either hit their backs with whips or they have someone else to do it for them.
The viral video below shows us a Filipino ‘Jesus Christ’ being kicked by four men.
Shared on Facebook by the Filipino page, the short footage shows us four men taking turns kicking a devotee’s back. As you can imagine, the clip looked pretty brutal until things took an unexpected – and hilarious – turn.
Watch the video here and see what happens:
Since it was first uploaded, the funny footage has attracted thousands of views, shares, and comments on social media. The exact location and the identities of the people involve, however, were left unrevealed.
I don’t know about you but if you ask me, this one is a proof that it’s definitely a wrong idea to mess with Jesus!

25 of the Funniest Ironies That Ever Occurred
So much irony, it hurts!
The world is filled with ironies. Sometimes, it even causes us extreme sorrow, such as when a couple who loves kids so much gets married but never has children of their own or those people who are not in any sort of relationship but keep seeing happy couples and saccharine moments around them.
But, irony need not always be sad and disappointing. There are times when it can bring us a few laughs, too. From broken door bell in a repair shop to 50 Cent's 50-cent worth album, the irony just feels so strong.
So, if you're having a bit of a rough day and are in need of a few giggles and laughs, we sure got you covered. Check out this compilation of photos that show how hilarious (and a bit disappointing!) irony can be:
25 of the Most Hilarious and Most Embarrassing Grammar Fails Ever
Seriously, we hope they don’t breed.
Grammar and spelling can make or break us - it can make us appear smarter and more credible but it can also reveal to the whole world just how much of a blockhead we are. We're not exaggerating here. Some people really just don't understand how punctuation or spelling errors alter the meaning of what we want to say.
Thankfully, there are grammar nazis out there who are extremely keen on correcting grammatical errors. The thing is, those who are on the erring side do not always "get it." While some may immediately realize that they made a mistake, others had to be savagely corrected for them to figure out that they made a blunder.
Check out this compilation of photos and be amused at how the grammar police ripped these people to shreds:
