Big Bwoy is humorous lead character of the Jamaican big bwoy (boy) stories. Most of the stories are naughty and adult in nature. Some are about trickery and deceit. Here are two clean big bwoy jokes.

When Big Bwoy Grow Up
Teacher went around class, asking students what they want to be when they grow up. Iceylyn: I want to be a shapkeepah (teacher nods), Aloysius: I want to be a fahmah (teacher nods), Hepsi: I want to be a maddah, ‘ousewife, wid 5 children (teacher stops nodding, and turns to Big Boy) — Big an’ dumb, wid a horny grin on him face: “An’ I, I want to be di faddah ah Hepsi pickni dem!”
