How could I forget, first class pepper sauce. Plenty around the world eat hot and spicy, but best pepper sauce is from Caribbean. Even Bajan pepper sauce, made with mustard, goes down nice.

Definitely falsename is a regular thing, especially the ones that other people give you.

E.g.: Parrot BT, Bruk-up, Fine Boy, Fat Boy,Red Man, Pope

Also very common these days is a genuine disgust of WI cricket performance and outcomes.

Does cricket even count? Even taking away the Spanish, French and Dutch countries out of the equation, do people in Belize, Bahamas, Cayman talk much about cricket, much less WI cricket? Curious.

An interesting question to pose. I have some friends who moved to Belize some time ago I'd have to try and reach them. Belize and Bahamas both played in the recent T20 Americas qualifier but don't know if the population in general cares much for either their national team or for WI (or both) the way Bermuda tends to.

Oddly enough, Cayman had a team play in 2019 but not this year (maybe because of Covid restrictions)

Common also is our colonial history, indigenous Folks exterminated or displaced, ancestors brought in as free or cheap labor.
