Clancy Eccles

Today Jamaica layed to rest one of its 'ordinary, great' men. How can he be ordinary and great at the same time, you ask? Well for those of us who knew Clancy, I'm sure you understand exactly what I mean.
Clancy was an entertainer, who gave us such hits as 'Freedom' and 'Hit them with Jamal'. He was very passionate about his music however he also had a great passion to help young people. He didn't have much but he was not afraid to get involved and stand up for what he believed in. He helped to organize the youths in his area in sports and music.
Some people might also label Clancy as an activist, and I say that in a good way. He had the ear of politicians and was not afraid to point out the good and the bad that they did. Jamaica was the land he loved and although he was not in the spotlight he didn't mind working behind the scenes for its good.
Clancy was a family man, however his family extended beyond his children. His home was a gathering place for the young and the young at heart.
So yes Clancy was and ordinary Jamaican man but in his own way he was a great Jamaican man.
Nuff Love

Bruk Pocket Jamaican

"Recently, this Jamaican won the 10 million special lottery for a dollar. As soon as the office of the Lottery Corporation was open on the following day, he was there to collect his winnings.

Graciously, he presented his winning ticket to the clerk and in his best English uttered his request "Me cum fi collect the 10 millian dallars, si me ticket ya".

After reviewing and checking the ticket with his manager, the clerk returned and requested on how he would like his payments. The Jamaican replied "Mi wan all a de moni now". "Unfortunately, Sir" the nervous clerk responded, "The procedures are that we can only give you one million now and the balance equally over the next 20 years".

Furious and agitated, the Jamaican asked for the manager, who re-iterated "Sir, my assistant is correct, it is the regulation of the corporation that we initially pay you one million dollars now with the balance paid to you equally over the next 20 years".

Outraged, the Jamaican slammed his hand on the desk and shouted in anger, "Oonu tek me fi idiat, me wan all a de moni now or oonu gi me bak me rass dallar!!"
