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.

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!!"
