Interesting Bits : Pregnant Women and Maas Clemmy

Pregnant Women
On September 27, 1957, two pregnant women who enter the University College Hospital of the West Indies in Jamaica are admitted to the same ward and deliver their boy babies simultaneously. To their amazement and amusement, the hospital authorities discover that the mothers live at the same address and believe it or not the babies have the same father. (Taken from 'This day in our past' published in the Jamaica Gleaner.)

Woman is my downfall!' ... Meet Maas Clemmy

"Yes, woman is my downfall!" he shouted. "Is woman mek mi come from high up and fall to nothing. Dem is pure crosses." Maas Clemmy from Crawl Pen in St. Catherine, Jamaica pours out his soul and tells how he copes these days.
