Vice presidential candidate Sara Duterte-Carpio's statements urging her supporters to throw burgers to critics got the Internet guessing  for days about what she meant.

"Pag kayo po ay binastos, kinancel, batuhin niyo po sila ng burger," Duterte-Carpio had said in some of her campaign rallies.

The remark is also reminiscent of the famous Filipino saying: "Kapag binato ka ng bato, batuhin mo ng tinapay" which discourages people from seeking revenge against their enemies.

During campaign rallies and motorcades, Marcos Jr. said he and the rest of the UniTeam continue  to woo voters even those who are critical of them.

"Kampanya ito eh 'di ikakampanya namin baka makumbinse namin na sumama na sa amin. Eh kung minsan pinapatawa ko na lang sila, makikipag-kamayan ako sa kanila," he said.

The tandem also shared their favorite placards from their supporters --- ranging from those that express love towards them to the witty ones.

"Napaka-warm ang pagtanggap sa amin kapag nakikita mo yung 'Mahal ka namin,' 'Tutulungan kayo namin,' 'Keep going.' Alam mo naman, it comes from a very, very good place," Marcos said.

"Pero ang dumadaming placard na nakikita ko ay yung hinahanap yung anak ko. Kung hindi si Sandro, si Simon o si Vincent. Kaya medyo na nagseselos na ako sa mga anak ko," he added.

Marcos and Duterte-Carpio continues to lead pre-election surveys with their campaign message centered on unity.
