Miss universe philippines: TALE OF THE (packing) TAPE

TAGUIG, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Taguig Bureau) – When one speaks of “Tale of the Tape,” it usually refers to the sport of boxing where the fighters would be measured with a tape measure before a fight.

But in beauty contests, particularly in the recently-concluded 2020 Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) held in Baguio City, this idiom took on an entire new meaning.

MUP Taguig City representative Sandra Lemonon is trending on social media because of her own “Tale of the Tape.” It wasn’t about a measuring tape though. Rather, it was about packing tape.

Without going into details, she revealed that a contestant used some packing tape during the pageant.

Perhaps the subject contestant used packing tape to seal boxes containing her gowns and accessories after the pageant finals on Sunday?


CBS RENAMES ‘60 MINUTES’ TO ‘37 Minutes’

NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Minutes after U,S. President Donald Trump walked out on Lesley Stahl, CBS announced it was renaming its news magazine show “60 MINUTES” to “37 MINUTES”

Trump abruptly ended the interview 37 minutes or so into the taping after he accused Stahl of “asking tough questions.”

CBS producers also considered renaming the show “TIK TOK” to reflect the sound of the ticking of the clock, but decided in favor of “37 MINUTES.”

Tik tok, tik tok, tik tok…
