Miss Jamaica World 2005 - Terri-Karell Griffith

Over the years the Miss Jamaica World competition has been a source of controversy. One of the greatest contentions is that no matter how beautiful and/or intelligent the black girls are the ‘brownings’ are always chosen.
Well this year 2005, a natural black Jamaican won. Terri-Karell Griffith. I must admit I had not been following the competition before however I was most impressed with Miss Griffith at the coronation show on Saturday, September 10 at the Jamaica Pegasus.
Terri-Karell is beautiful, intelligent, confident, talented and she exudes personality. She was chosen for the Gleaner’s most aware award. During the questions and answer segment of the competition she was confident and fluent. A trained dancer Terri also won the sectional prize for talent. To top it off, she was voted most congenial by 13 of the 15 contestants.
A student of the Central University in Las Villas, Cuba the 23 year old is studying veterinary medicine. She speaks French and Spanish fluently.
It’s a given, you can never please all the people all the time. However, I do believe many Jamaicans who saw the coronation show or who have been following the competition will agree that the right girl won.
Nuff Love.

Three Ministers

Three ministers - a Presbyterian, a Methodist, and a Southern Baptist and their wives were all on a cruise together. A tidal wave came up and swamped the ship, and they all drowned. The next thing you know, they're standing before St.Peter.

As fate would have it, the first in line was the Presbyterian and his wife. St. Peter shook his head sadly and said, "I can't let you in. You were moral and upright, but you loved money too much. You loved it so much, you even married a woman named Penny."

St.Peter waved sadly, and poof! Down the chute to the 'Other Place' they went. Then came the Methodist. "Sorry, can't let you in either," said Saint Peter "You abstained from liquor and dancing and cards, but you loved food too much.

You loved food so much, you even married a woman named Candy!" Sadly, St. Peter waved again, and whang! Down the chute went the Methodists.

The Southern Baptist turned to his wife and whispered nervously, "It ain't looking good, Fanny."
