It looks like another internet argument has divided us netizens. The height of the wswswswsws vs. mingmingming battle has mostly ended but another has driven a wedge between the north and the south once again. A childhood staple, to be exact, one where you had to “change your shoe/foot if it was dirty.” That’s right: Ice ice water/ice water ice water!
As someone who grew up with the “ice ice water” variant, I’ll do my best not to be biased (even though, clearly, it is the superior version). Here are some thoughts from our friends on Twitter:
"Ice water ice water" taught me to go home and change my shoes if they are dirty. Eh kayo??? Anong natutunan niyo sa "ice ice water change your foot" niyo??? Keep up naman tayo sa paggawa ng chants bye. HAHAHAHAHAHA jk lang aral na ulit

Aral na lang tayo (Let’s just study). :'(
We North kids say "change your foot" instead of "change your shoe" because we acknowledge that we must cleanse our very skin of that which dirties us. Changing one's shoe is a temporary solution that avoids true culpability.
jk u guys take this rly seriously (#TeamIceIceWater)

Getting to the root of the issue! Maybe it is ourselves we must change.

Using another example to get the point across.
With everything that is happening nowadays, we must always do what is right.
It's swswswsws and it's ice ice water.

Doesn’t sound right at all.
Conclusion ni sir:
Ice ice water- technically more aesthetically pleasing
Ice water ice water- more in tune with the way of the universe
Pls don’t ask how he arrived at those conclusions. pic.twitter.com/0L6nQ4Ea05

A scientific approach.
The concept of “ice water” game is similar to “tag you’re it” except the person who’s “it” tags another person & freezes him, other un-frozen person can save them & turn them back to water. You can’t ice someone twice. That’s why it’s “ice water, ice water” not “ice ice water” pic.twitter.com/Hq3IKNrU3J

Dissecting it for its mechanics. Fair enough.
Sobrang na-miss ni Liza Soberano yung point kung bakit siya binabash. It's not about who your parents are or whether or not you like Filipino food. It's about whether you say Ice Ice Water or Ice Water Ice Water.

The real issue here.
It's MANGO FLOAT not MANGO GRAHAM/GRAHAM CAKE
It's ICE ICE WATER not ICE WATER ICE WATER
It's MANGO SAGO not MANGO BANGO
