Tsong, I Wonder.....

I have always wondered where the term of endearment "Tsong" originated from. Along with "pare", "pards", "dre" and "tol", these words are now mainstays of the spoken Filipino language.

I have a hunch. After watching the 70s hippie flick "Cheech and Chong" once more recently, it dawned on me. Was the term taken from Cheech?

You think? ;-)

Tsong is a kapampangan word that means uncle. Joey Marquez who popularized it in Palibhasa Lalake is kapampangan. So there. The female version is tsang.

That is certainly plausible. But even before Joey Marquez popularized it, it was already in the vernacular. Also, that would mean we would be usually calling each other "uncle". Hmmm. Yes, still logical, though.
