  1. Dreads and Jamaican accents don't bother me so much as Rastifarians believing Haile Selassie was God bothers me !

  2. I have met a person who had never been to Jamaica, but talked with an affected Jamaican accent. That sort of stuck with me as being one of the most pathetic things I ever saw.
