Jamaican Jokes: Jamaican Lottery Winner

Written by Staff Writer

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, see mi 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 money 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 idiot, me want all a de money now or oonu gi me bak me dolla!!”
