Jumbie's Laws


For quick reference, the following are Jumbie's Laws, in order, from one to five. . 

  1. "When you think dotishness cannot get worse, someone will come along to prove it can."
  2. "Trinbagonians are consistently the best at picking the worst."
  3. "Dotishness has no social barrier."
  4. "Dotishness has no shame."
  5. Jumbie's Fifth Law: "Stupidity (dotishness) manifests in infinite ways."

For foreign readers, the word 'dotishness' is a local Trinidad word for 'doltishness' but has a deeper meaning... it refers to a stupidity that defies description
