Jamaican Taffies?
« on: February 14, 2015, 01:59:05 pm »
No, this isnt racist I just find it weird.

Last night I popped down the Local Kebab for one of there finest "Sliced Dead mans legs". Outside the shop were a gang of local kids all very loud and excited and speaking in a very strange accent.  Having been brought up and gone to School in Brixton, South London,  I suddenly realised they were all talking in Jamaican slang, Whappening Bro, Whagwan etc etc but with a weird Jamaican/Carribean/Max Boyce sort of ring. Ok, I dont get out much but is this repeated in other parts of the Country, Geordie Jamaicans, Wye Eye Blood?

Yes I'm afraid it is Tim, being from the East End of London and now living in West Yorkshire I hear the same strange accent here.

Are you wearing dreadlocks in your avatar Tim?  :-\
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.
