Fatty Bom Bom now Fluffy
I was a having a conversation with some relatives visiting from Jamaica about Jamaican culture and our abrasiveness. I was telling them how surprised an American friend was when I told him we have no political correctness when it comes to body size. If someone is fat we will call them “fatty bom bom” in their face. If someone is skinny we call them “mahga” (meager) in their face. Well I was promptly corrected that we Jamaicans who live abroad are not up on the latest terms. Fatty Bom Bom is out and is the old term. Fluffy is the new term.
