Philippines Cuts Diplomatic Ties With Colombia Over Miss Universe Fiasco (Video)

imageMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Since July  5, 1946, the Philippines has had a great diplomatic relationship with Colombia, with foreign embassies established by both countries locally. But it took one despicable act on the part of some Colombians for the Philippines to immediately sever its ties with the South American country.

On New Year’s eve, while most people around the world were lighting up fireworks to welcome 2016, some Colombian sore losers chose to light up the Philippines’ Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Miss Universe, and pageant host Steve Harvey.  Well, not them in person, but their effigies.

The group of Colombians can’t seem to get over the fact that their representative to the recent Miss Universe Pageant, despite being temporarily crowned Miss Universe, was, in reality, the first runner-up.  Harvey misread the cue card and announced that Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez had won the crown only to correct himself minutes later to say that Wurtzbach was the actual winner.

Filipinos are a loving, hospitable and laid-back people, but when it comes to their beauty queens, it’s a different story. Anyone or any country that humiliates or offends their Filipina pageant title holders will certainly suffer severe consequences. Yes, even the cutting of diplomatic ties.

As of press time, the Colombian embassy in Quezon City was still occupied by their diplomats. They are still processing the shocking news they received from the Philippine Foreign Affairs Department.

 

COLOMBIA RENAMES ITSELF TO COLUMBIA

imageBOGOTÁ, Colombia (The Adobo Chronicles) – The Republic of Colombia, one of the Latin countries comprising South America, has gained overnight popularity, thanks to that eventful night in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Miss Universe host Steve Harvey misread his cue card and announced that Miss Colombia had won the 2015 crown, only to reverse himself moments later to say that it was actually Miss Philippines who won the pageant.

That awkward moment of de-crowning the Latin Beauty and (re)crowning the Filipina was the most reported and talked about event in the last 24 hours.  News reports and social media posts all but put Colombia in the spotlight, making it the most searched country on the Internet.

Alas, people around the world kept misspelling Colombia, thinking that the country’s name was no different from the famous university in New York or the U.S. capital situated in the District of Columbia.

In order to sustain the popularity and unparalleled momentum, the Colombian government decided to rename the country Columbia, hoping that this would significantly increase tourism to the South American country while making sure that people will not forget the 2015 Colombian beauty queen who was  crowned and de-crowned in Las Vegas.

Bienvenidos a todos. Nuestra pais se llama Columbia!
