  9. @Fulltext – talked to John. He was right.

    1. bomboclat:
    A Jamaican expression meant to convey shock or surprise
    “I won $50,000 in the lotto!”

    2. bumbaclot
    A cloth or rag used to wipe ones anal region. However, most Jamaicans
    use it as a substitute for the word f*ck to express anger or surprise.
