Why I like Jamaicans...


Mind my hair hat!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say with fair certainty that as far as Caribbean nationals go, only a Jamaican would have the cojones to sport such a stylin' do.The Jamaica Star's Norman Grindley tells how 20 years ago Darain Housen, a barber; at a loss for headgear to go to a fete, and not wanting to be the odd man out; cut his hair in the shape of a hat. Reasonable, that; besides, he got beer out of the deal.
"Mi an dem fi go a di party but di three of them had caps an' mi had none so mi
get two mirror one behind mi and di other in front of mi an' mi trim mi hair
like a cap an' go a di dance," said Housen...

"Dem did love it," he said
smiling. "Mi friends an' some of the girls said I win di hairstyle contest and
buy mi a box a Guinness," he said.
Yup, cojones the size of a calabash.
