An elderly Jamaican man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite Jamaican pastry, ‘Gizzada‘ wafting up the stairs. He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself from the bed.
Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs. With labored breath, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen. Were it not for death’s agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were literally dozens of ‘Gizzadas’.
Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man? Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a rumpled posture. His parched lips parted, the wondrous taste of the ‘Gizzada’ was already in his mouth, seemingly bringing him back to life.
The aged and withered hand trembled on its way to a ‘Gizzada’ at the edge of the table, when it was suddenly smacked with a ‘dutch-pot’ by his wife…… “Move yu back-side!” she said, “Dem ya a fe you funeral.”

Once upon a time in the kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael the archangel found him, resting on the seventh day. He inquired of God. “Where have you been?” God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, “Look, Michael. Look what I’ve made!”
Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, “What is it?”
“It’s a planet,” replied God, “and I’ve put Life on it. I’m going to call Earth and it’s going to be a great place of balance.”
“Balance?” inquired Michael, still confused.
God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. “For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over there I’ve placed a continent of white people and over there is a continent of black people,” God continued pointing to different countries. “This one will be extremely hot and while this one will be very cold and
covered in ice.”
The Archangel, impressed by God’s work, then pointed to a land mass in the Caribbean and said, “What’s that one?”
“Ah,” said God. “That’s Jamaica the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful beaches, blue mountains, streams, hills, and waterfalls. The people from Jamaica are going to be very handsome, modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be found traveling the world holding good jobs. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking and high-achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace, play football and go to the Winter Olympics.”
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, “What about balance, God? You said there would be balance!!!”
God replied wisely, “Wait until you see the idiots that run their government.”

Two years ago I visited Jamaica. I went to the hospital to visit a
friend. I overheard the nurses giggling about something one of the dying patients said.
Curious to hear the joke I asked them what it was: A nurse went up the dying
councilor and asked him if he was feeling pain. The dying man turned to the nurse and
The nurse asked “tell me about PPPPPPPPP NNNNNNNNNNNNNN PPPPPPPPPPPPP”
OF COURSE, THIS MAN WAS A 36 YEARS VETERAN IN THE PNP PARTY.
