DUNCE. DUNCE. DUNCE.
Hope Kartel is wearing his dunce cap, dressed up like BIG Boy and sucking his thumb, wherever he is, because there is no word other than DUNCE to describe his absence from the Teacha’s Pet launch on Tuesday.
We really felt sorry for the sponsors and producers as they tried to make excuses for the absent Teacha: “He’s at the doctor,” they offered. Yeah. Right.
But that’s where he should be. It has become so much a part of him to tek promoter deposit and then don’t turn up for the show, that he just did what is normal for him. Inexcusable.
Anyway, the show got on the road without the bleached out face Teacha. LIME’s Tara Playfair-Scott, producer Carleene Samuels and Jay Will all said their piece, pointing out that this will be the best thing to happen to local television in a long time. Can you believe that Canada had the most entries overall, while Trinidad had the most from the Caribbean. (Jamaican culture really a tek over Trinidad.)
Of course, everybody was looking forward to the clips to see exactly who these “pets” were. What was shown was the carefully edited, made-for-television version, but it was quite comical nontheless.
The real raw footage will be available online for adult audiences only. We don’t even want to begin to imaine what that is all about. Rampin’ Shop and then some.
Kayshoya, we see you and you represent fi di US big time. A mus you come out pon top. As dem say, You maggah! (New talk.)
