Social-media posts of the week

Before I show you the posts I first want to give you the definition of a Maori word used in one of the Social media posts.

p?kokohua
1.?(verb)?(-tia) to curse, cuss.
2.?(interjection)?very strong curse, an insulting swear word, an expression of anger or a curse expressing a lack of desire to do something. The strength of emotions usually associated with the use of the M?ori word is not conveyed in a literal translation (i.e. boiled head) in the English. Because the head is tapu in traditional M?ori society, to boil it would have been the ultimate insult. However, the strength of the word depends on the ferocity of the delivery by the speaker.

3.?(noun)?strong term expressing contempt for someone.
