Walmart Fires Its Chief Merchandiser!

DALLAS, Texas (The Adobo Chronicles, Dallas Bureau) – Walmart, America’s largest employer outside of the government, has just fired its chief merchandiser for an incorrect entry in its most recent flyer promoting the sale price for Old Dutch Chips.

The flyer incorrectly stated the sale price for the chips at 4 bags for $10. Walmart said the correct price was 2 bags for $5.

The flyer didn’t state what the cost of just 1 or 3 bags would be.


QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo’s Covid-19 relief operations continue unabated with OVP’s latest food distribution happening in Baclaran, Metro Manila.

This time, instead of handing out bowls of cooked spaghetti, Leni’s team distributed coffee, mayonnaise, sliced black olives and packs of pancit bihon. Recipients were also provided with a copy of Robredo’s gourmet recipe for pancit.

The Adobo Chronicles obtained a copy of the recipe and we are reprinting it in full, as a public service to our readers.

Malacañang annual pig pardon proposed by Senator Franklin Drilon

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Each year in the United States, The White House “pardons” a couple of turkeys, saving the lucky birds from ending up on the Thanksgiving dinner table of Americans.

Turkeys are not a big thing in the Philippines, but pigs are. Think lechon which is a must in family dinners and get togethers during the holidays and special occasions.

Enter Senator Franklin Drilon.

He is proposing that the Presidential Palace (Malacañang) does a similar pardon for pigs during all major Philippine holidays — from Christmas to New Year to Easter, down to town fiestas.

Drilon’s proposal comes right on the heels of a pork crisis being experienced by Filipinos due to short supply, and the African Swine Fever (ASF). President Duterte recently ordered the implementation of a price ceiling for pork and chicken.

Drilon told The Adobo Chronicles that a Malacañang pig pardon will be a symbolic gesture to show our appreciation and recognition of the all-important sacrificial role pigs play in the daily lives of Filipinos.
