Sadly, I didn’t get to whine pon a Caribbean woman with an arse too big for her own good (and mine). Until next time though….

by Myles Cupid ‘What is the best league in world?’, that is one of the most poignant questions of our generation, along side ‘Ah weh yuh get da new Clarks deh DAADI??’ and ‘How can she slap??’.
