OTTAWA, Canada (The Adobo Chronicles, Toronto Bureau) – Canada’s House of Commons passed Bill C-45 which legalized cannibalism.
It wasn’t meant to be that way. What it hoped to pass was a bill that would legalize recreational marijuana, or cannabis. But thanks to autocorrect, it is still illegal to smoke pot but now legal to eat humans.
Upon noticing the error, the lawmakers rushed to unanimously approve a new law outlawing autocorrect.
Alas, the cannibalism law is still alive and kicking.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – U.S. President Donald Trump reacted with a lot of insecurity to the announcement from the Royal Palace in London that Prince Harry is now engaged to be married to American Actress Meghan Markle.
That makes Markle a potential heir to the throne of the Queen.
Trump said that this possibility negates all that he stands for since becoming President — an independent America as well as his ‘America First’ policy.
”We cannot go back to the days when parts of America were under British colonial rule,” he said.
NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Now it can be told.
TIME magazine’s Person of the Year cover featured women described as the “Silence Breakers,” those who had the courage to come out of anonymity to announce to the world that they were victims of a growing epidemic in America: sexual harassment.
Unknown to many readers, a Filipina was supposed to be part of that powerful cover photo for being forced out of anonymity after it was revealed that she was the person behind the anti-Duterte political blog, Pinoy Ako Blog (PAB).
Jover Laurio had her own moments of fame when the BBC interviewed her about breaking her silence.
However, TIME editors decided at the last minute to crop PAB out if the cover photo after another (pro-Duterte) blogger, Sass Rogando Sasot complained to the magazine.
