That’s funny, yung “Noynoying” sa amin, verb din na ang ibig sabihin ay “date ng date ng date, pero hindi nagpapakasal.” #VocabHomework via @gangbadoy

Palace definition

The Palace has contributed to the definition (and actually has defined noynoying very well).

According to Spokesman Lacierda: Noynoying creative but has no effect.

(Spot on Mr. Lacierda! Everyone agrees that noynoying is useless and is no good.)

Spokesman Coloma meanwhile saysNoynoying is annoying.

(Uhm.. yeah. We all hate noynoying. Kills productivity. Super annoying or should we say, annoynoying.)

Noynoy Aquino himself has articulated its definition in his interview: How do you show the truth to people who do not want to see? How do you make people listen to you if they do not want to listen?

(Exactly, Mr. President. That’s what people think of noynoying too! You hit that sweet noynoying spot right there.)
