Miss Jamaica Keeps ‘Tings Ireal at Miss Universe PageantU
When Miss Zimbabwe is White, Standards of Beauty Need Some Recalibration, But What’d She Say?

The Miss Universe Pageant is like a middle school cheerleader tryout and generally entertains us with a similar level of talent like baton twirling, American Idol audition screeching, and moving, passionate pleas for world peace coached by the off-screen pit crews of bimbo handlers. All the wheels come off when Maxine Livingston, Miss Jamaica, sashays onto the stage:
If you don’t understand patois, you’re missing out. This is from AFTER HOURS, which I produced with the great Kenny Robinson, who also hosted. Our audience always brought a lot of island flavour so the laughs were real and loud with no need to translate. Miss Jamaica is the human dynamo of comedy and smarts that is Trey Anthony. The MC is Second City’s Bruce Hunter, complete with Jersey Shore spray tan, and the “translator” is Jean Paul. I wrote this with the cast and Trey improvised the patois. Hint: ras claat and battybwoy are words you should be careful of using among your more polite Jamaican friends.
