The state-run Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation in Barbados made a huge mistake last night when someone was either (i) watching porn or (ii) fucking, in its newsroom studio. The audio was simulcast with the weather report of the 7:00pm PrimeTime News.
In a statement on its Facebook page some minutes later, the Corporation issued an apology going something like:
The CBC extends deepest apologies to its viewers for the unfortunate happenings in the presentation of the weather news tonight. Be assured that this matter will be dealt with and we commit to doing all possible to ensure there is not a repeat of this action. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
How embarrassing. And hilarious.
I’ve been informed that American “chef”, Christina Curry, has totally wiped the internet of her embarrassing cooking video which fucked up Barbados’ national dish - Cou Cou.
You’ll remember that I told her to jump off a bridge here, but only after droves of Bajans told her to do the same all over the internet.
Just in case you lost count:
BARBADOS - 1 : CLUELESS FOREIGNERS - 0
In what appears to be the biggest threat to the sovereignty of post-independent Barbados, American chef Christina Curry recently debuted some fucked up alteration of the island’s national dish Cou Cou, and Bajans all over the world are livid! So livid, in fact, that they’ve taken to every conceivable social network to complain, including Curry’s own YouTube channel.
Some of the comments are so horrible that they’re being deleted as soon as they’re posted, but the general gist is:
IF YOU’RE CALLING IT A VARIATION DONT REFER TO IT AS COU COU, CALL IT FRIED CORN MEAL SQUARES. YOU JUST FUCKED UP MY COUNTRY’S NATIONAL DISH, THANKS ALOT
Further shitting on Barbados, Curry replaced Flying Fish - national fish, requisite complement to Cou Cou, and preeminent national symbol of Barbados which is revered in song, depicted on coins, passports, government logos, license cards and just about everything else Bajan - with beef stew.
While an incoherent string of text in the midst of an otherwise-intelligible paragraph may be weird for normal people, some Christians seem to believe that it’s incontrovertible proof that you’re full of the Holy Ghost.
For reference, please see this exceptionally odd Facebook update from popular evangelist Juanita Bynum, and her fan responses here. You may also find it interesting to read up on how the Bible views the practice of ‘speaking in tongues.’
As Tropical Storm Harvey approaches Belize, the folks in the newsroom at CBC TV8 in Barbados found themselves in a curious position: not only was their star reporter stranded in Harvey’s direct path, but their only Caribbean map ended at Cuba.
Not to be outdone by the sudden realisation that Belize is also a member of the Caribbean Community along with Barbados, CBC offered this: a 20th Century map of the Caribbean Basin, and a big ass arrow pointing in the general direction of Belize, or Costa Rica.
Here’s hoping that Belize, wherever it is, comes out unscathed.
