Thanksgiving in Jamaica

Well in the spirit of the season I have to wish a happy thanksgiving to all the Americans and all the Jamericans who are currently enjoying their turkey day celebrations and the requisite meal that goes with it. Yes this is the day when Americans give thanks for... well for everything they have, its pretty noble I guess, if you forget the whole killing off of the Indians and taking their lands and then relegating them to the crappiest lands in their own lands and then treating them like they weren't citizens and then eventually after years of protest made them citizens *exhales*. Yea Americans have got alot to be thankful for. But Americans aren't the only people who have something to be thankful for, we here in Jamaica have alot to be thankful for too.

I'm thankful that, despite the mere fact that our economy has been run by a set of incompetents for quite a number of years still remains afloat and looks like it may actually survive a little longer, despite being run by a newer and even more stupid set of idiots.

I'm thankful that Jamaicans, while we currently are in a position which is not envied by any country in the world, still manage to party and enjoy ourselves.

Further to this previous one, I'm thankful that Jamaica produces the best set of rums in the world (Whites!). Not to mention the best beer in the world (Red Stripe).

I'm thankful that through the NEPA our beaches are still some of the most beautiful in the world and I can easily brag about that fact anywhere in the world I travel to as I laugh at their poor quality beaches.

I'm thankful that I dont have to import my dancehall and reggae music - even though it seems we have to import everything else we use/consume.

I'm thankful that Jamaican food is also easily among the best in the world,  (Cant wait for some ackee and saltfish and some roast breadfruit... or some jerk pork or chicken... *sigh)

I'm also thankful that I have a family that loves and cares for me and is willing to stick with me through my law degree.

And finally. I'm thankful that despite all the hardships, struggles, and pains I go through, I was born in, still live in, and am a proud citizen of this the most beautiful Island in the world JAMAICA!

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!!"
