Pinoy Big Brother and the kaboboan of #Taglish speakers


You know what grinds my gears? Hearing kids talk in a mishmash of Taglish.

I once caught a glimpse of an episode of the latest reality TV show fad here in the Philippines (Pinoy Big Brother) and the way these teenaged housemates converse are an example of the most ******* annoying butchering and scrambling of languages I have ever heard.

Why can't they speak either straight Tagalog or straight English? What the hell is wrong with saying either "Gusto ko po matuto…" or "I want to learn…" instead of saying "Gusto ko po i-learn…"?
