New Proverbs out of Montego Bay City

New Proverbs out of Montego Bay City, adding to the rich linguisic and folk culture of Jamaica...

"Idle dog f_ck John Crow"
This I think means the same as "the devil finds work for idle hands"

"Pickney food share a grung"
~Paradise Acres
This I believe means the same as "spare the rod and spoil the child"

"Don't f_ck with the lightning"
~Paradise Acres
This means don't stir up my wrath

"Keep yuh d_ck up"
~Tickle Puss
The philosophical rant of a 90+ alcoholic, who patrol Paradise Acres
