WILL ROSE FOSTANES BE THE LAST FILIPINA STANDING?

imageTel Aviv, Israel – Tuesday is the finals for the first-ever X Factor Israel, and the winner could possibly be someone but Israeli.  Filipina caregiver Rose Fostanes is among the four finalists vying for the title.

Whether or not Fostanes wins  isn’t the big issue.  As reported earlier by The Adobo Chronicles, Filipinos will soon be banned from participating in all international reality TV singing competitions — from X Factor to American Idol to The Voice. The reason? Because Filipinos are such good musicians they have an “unfair advantage” over competitors of other nationalities, according to TV producers. Read the full story HERE.

MCDONALD’S IS THE CULPRIT IN CHEESE SHORTAGE

imageNorthfield, Illinois – Just a day after it announced a shortage of its cheese products, Kraft Foods accused fastfood giant McDonald’s of hoarding tons and tons of the popular cheese brand Velveeta.

In its earlier announcement, Kraft said it did not know what was causing the Velveeta shortage, only going as far as to say that a noticeable decline in its product supply happens every now and then. Analysts surmised that the shortage may have something to do with the NFL season where football fans consume an unusual amount of cheese and cheese products.

However, a Kraft external investigation confirmed that McDonald’s has been stocking crates and crates of Velveeta cheese in just the last several weeks.

In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, a top executive of the hamburger chain admitted that indeed, McDonald’s has been holding on to a huge inventory of Velveeta cheese.  The reason? “We are about to launch a new McDonald’s menu item — Mc N Cheese,” the spokesperson said.

SARAH PALIN THINKS ‘POLAR VORTEX’ IS AN ARCTIC ANIMAL

imageAnchorage, Alaska – Everybody is talking about “polar vortex,’ the weather phonomenon that has brought extreme frigid temperatures in the mid and eastern sections of the United States. So is Sarah Palin.

In a townhall meeting aimed at debunking claims of global warming, the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate said that the record winter weather currently being experienced by many Americans is proof that  “the globe is not getting warmer as claimed by leftist environmentalists.” “As a matter of fact, the globe is becoming colder,” she added.

When asked by an audience member what she thinks of the polar vortex, Palin said that environmentalists and citizens alike should do all they can to protect this endangered arctic animal.

Apparently, Palin thought that polar vortex is one of the  animals found in Alaska, Canada and other places in the arctic region like the polar bear, muskox, caribou and arctic fox.
