Was Christmas in Trinidad Always This Crazy?

December 15, 2008 at 3:10 am (Uncategorized) (, )

Pork/Ham/Food :

A national tradition to consume vast amounts of red meat at Christmas. Hell we sing about it.

Alcohol :

In 2006, moreĀ  than 500,000 cases of rum, 250,000 cases of whiskey and 70,000 cases of wine were imported into Trinidad.

500,000 X 24 = 12 million bottles
250,000 X 24 = 6,000,000
70,000 X 24 = 1,680,000

If taken further as total number of ounces or ml, i’m sure it would surpass the annual rainfall figures of some countries.

General Insanity :

Buying new furniture, cleaning out your house, shopping like mad people.

Is this supposed to be fun? Why don’t I feel it anymore? The words “pagan” and “mass hysteria” always come to mind when I assess the behaviour of everyone for theĀ  season.

The general idea is to clean your house so you won’t feel embarassed when friends come over on Boxing Day. If they were real friends would they judge you by whether your door is freshly painted? If they do, then why invite them?

Are we really going to drink all that alcohol imported?

Why is pork ham so popular? Doesn’t everyone know it causes cancer and heart disease?

Maybe I feel this way now after my encounters today and yesterday at a supermarket with hundreds of people wildly buying all those aforementioned, with one lady pushing in front of me after I looked back for a second.

Its crazy. I can understand the shopping part, but I really wish Trinidadians would educate themselves about the health risks of this “tradition” to mass consume fatty meat and alcohol…….and learn some frigging manners when in line.

PM Manning REALLY has Kidney Cancer

December 12, 2008 at 6:51 am (news, Politics, Trinidad) (, , , )

Isn’t it funny that I have to retract commentary on something I thought should be retracted? Turns out I mixed up the word benign with malignant, therefore Manning really does have Kidney Cancer. I realized this when I woke up this morning, but was too lazy to come back to change it.

So the following front page cover is in fact true :

Is the editor a fan of oxymoron? Or is just a plain moron?

In that case, wow, its still sad. All I really want is to see him lose the next election by the biggest landslide in modern history, not suffer from cancer, but that’s life I guess.

Trinidad Tops the WORLD in Porn Searches

December 2, 2008 at 8:54 pm (Funny, Holy Shit, Trinidad) (, , )

NO, NOT THE REGION, NOT THE HEMISPHERE, NOT THE “ENGLISH-SPEAKING CARIBBEAN” THE FRICKIN WORLD.

I SHIT YOU NOT

I SHIT YOU NOT

In terms of the volume of searches through Google for porn in relation to population, TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO HAS THE HIGHEST IN THE WORLD. Way ahead of the top producer of porn, the U.S, Trinidad leads Bangladesh, the UK, South Africa, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand….all countries who have atleast FOUR TIMES the population of Trinidad. I can’t get over this, can you believe this?

See this stunning discovery here on Google

ARE WE REALLY THAT FRIGGING PERVERTED?

The little 1.5 million of us are more interested in porn per capita than countries with 100 times our population. Hell, we’re more interested in porn than the land of the porn stars : the US.

SO NOW we know what those seemingly busy but inefficient public servants with internet access do all day. WOW.

If you’re a parent and you’re concerned about this, I strongly suggest you visit this site and download the software there………..for the sake of the country!! lol
