Mr. Vegas Donates To Mustard Seed Community

With the recent craziness surrounding the dancehall community, it is good to actually see artistes out there continuing to do positive works in and around the many communities that line the country of Jamaica. So in an effort to assist the children of Martha's House, Reggae/Dancehall artiste, Mr. Vegas recently handed over a cheque for JA$350, 000.

The children who were previously housed at the Mustard Seed Communities home on North Street, Kingston, were displaced after fire engulfed the premises in March of 2009. Since then, they were moved to another Mustard Seed location in Spanish Town, where, with the help of a number of charities, corporate companies and aggrieved persons, new housing has been provided for them.

Mr. Vegas whose correct name is Clifford Smith and is known for numerous hits including the inspirational, I Am Blessed, said, "I went to the first home a few years ago and I was so disheartened and touched by the living situation there and the cheerful spirit of these kids amidst all their trials, that I had to come back and follow up with them and donate money to assist."

"These are kids who are affected by HIV/Aids and though the new home is almost complete, there are other things that they need and supplies always cost money. Sometimes when we go about our daily lives we forget how blessed we are and complain about the smallest of things and there are others out there in more unfortunate circumstances. Let's not continue to turn a blind eye to our neighbor, but help them in any way we can," he said.

The singer was also given US$50 by someone who heard of the children's needs and wished to assist. The money was handed over to those at the home in addition to Mr. Vegas' donation.

The Small Sandal Shop

A married couple was on holiday in Jamaica. They were touring around the marketplace looking at the goods when they passed this small sandal shop.

From inside they heard the shopkeeper with a Jamaican accent say, "You!

Foreigners! Come in, come into my humble shop."

So the married couple walked in.

The Jamaican said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you would be interested in. They make you wild at sex."

Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being the sex god he was.

The husband asked the man, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak?"

The Jamaican replied, "Just try them on."

Well, the husband, after some badgering from his wife, finally gave in, and tried them on. As soon as he slipped them onto his feet, he got this wild look in his eyes, something his wife hadn't seen in many years!

In the blink of an eye, the husband grabbed the Jamaican, bent him

violently over a table, yanked down his pants, ripped down his own pants,and grabbed a firm hold of the Jamaican's hips.

The Jamaican then began screaming; "YOU GOT THEM ON THE WRONG FEET!!!"
