Dutty Wine is a Killa

Dutty Wine Kills

Fathead pointed me to this article in the Jamaican Gleaner. Some poor child in St. Catherines died recently and the cause of death ~The Dutty Wine. Dang. That's quite a bad way to die.

I do feel for her mum, however, it is sort of an interesting cause of death.

The one quote made me crack up:

"It is a warning to young people that dem mus stop du de Dutty Wine," said one
woman who called the incident a curse on the land. "Is like a demon sen' from de
pit a hell dat is taking the lives of the youth even before dem have time to

Three things to tell your teenagers before they leave home:
Don't Drink n Drive
Don't Do Drugs
Don't Dutty Wine

I don't understand
was the child asthmatic?

I don't think she was asthmatic, perhaps she was exhausted, didn't want to splurge the $4 on water. Or more likely, someone was holding on to her neck the wrong way. Can you imagine what the fella she was dancing with is thinking? Either he is dying of shame, or he is walking around feeling like the pimp of the world, I Dutty Wine so hard the Biiatchhh drop down n die. -ok that was a pretty horrible thing to think..ek.
