    I remember my mother use to tell me "Yuh to outavadda".....I never use to know what it meant but as time went on i realized it was OUT OF ORDER.

    I also love the many different parables they use to say. My favorite was

    "Wha sweet nanny goat run dem belly"
    Bend Ova and Don't look Back, 6:30 and Tek dis Jook!!!!!
