Traditional Mas concludes

" Love Chinaman will be putting milk in your coffee.. sooner rather than later Chinee children will be calling you daddy ..."

This video clip gives a summary of the Traditional Mas held in St. James, Trinidad, West Indies. It begins with
the Pierrot Grenade who test the audience with a mix of polysyllables to form words. Then to the Black Indians with their antics and untranslatable rant. A Carnival performer who has been portraying the Bookman devil for over sixty years, and two Midnight Robbers churning out their speech.

Where I sat on the pavement, there was a annoying woman who shouting at the Pierrot. When the performer asked how to spell Chicago, she blurted it out in letters C. H. I. C. A. G. O. rather than the man next to me who was eventually asked the question. - " She in the car and the car can't go".
