Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto has been humoring the public with unusual profile labels on social media.
It was noticed by some online Filipinos as early as last year.
A look at the city chief’s Instagram account yields the label “Grocery Store” below his name.
Some social media users noticed the change as early as May 2022.

The odd profile label on Instagram has been leaving people in wonder as recently as last March.
“HAHAHAHHA GROCERY STORE @VicoSotto, ano tinda mo, sir,” a Pinoy on Twitter quipped.
Sotto’s account in the text-based social media platform is not exempt from the unusual label.
The city chief labels himself as an “event venue” on Twitter.
This was noticed by some social media users as early as September 2022.

Sotto has not yet divulged his reasons for labeling his social media profiles as such, but he is widely known for his humor online.
Last month, the mayor commented that the certificate folder of their city graduates appeared to look like laptops.
His remark earned laughs from some followers, who considered him a “jokerist.”
Last year, Sotto humored a Twitter user requesting a birthday greeting.
“PAKISABI NAMAN KAY @VicoSotto NA BATIIN AKO,” she wrote before.
“@VicoSotto batiin mo daw si @MaritoniViceral,” the millennial mayor responded.
