Taal Volcano - Just Another DPWH Photoshop Meme

Hollywood Like Sign on Taal Volcano
Do you think it's finished after the great DPWH Photoshop meme in damaged Manila Bay seawall after typhoon Pedring and extending it's way to Washington Post and Wallstreet Journal? It's not, because another Photoshop meme in one of the 12 most beautiful lake in the world  is now rapidly spreading on Twitter and Facebook with BATANGAS sign in Taal Volcano.

It gone viral on the net in a matter of hours and many netizens express criticisms, opposition and beliefs.

"The proposal to have a Batangas sign where Taal volcano is simply stupid. It's the penchant of politicians to put their names everywhere" One of netizens tweets.

Taal lake which  home the world's smallest active Taal volcano is one of 12 most beautiful lake in the world, the deepest lake with a depth of 564 feet and the third largest lake in our country. The only sardine living in freshwater can only be found here which is known as "tawilis". I don't think building a look a like Hollywood sign will increase tourism business and it will just ruined the natural beauty of the spot.

What is Meme?

Meme is an idea that is passed from one generation to generation through speech, writing, gestures and other imitable media.. It is from a Greek word "mimeme" which means something imitated. It is first coined in the book " The Selfish Gene" by Richard Dawkins in 1976. The idea of meme was like a gene of biological inheritance that can pass to generations. Meme's are typically short lived ideas.
