No number 'second' roun 'ere

We administrators of the blog circle (as shown by the links on the right) have had numerous discussions on this "Number dos" syndrome. Why does no one say this number? Why do Jamaican men take offence to being labelled as number what-comes-after-1, regardless of the context? Whats the difference between the numeral 1+1 and any other number?

One day in 1994 Terror Fabulous released a song, the first few lines of which went like so:

"Some man a play number 2
nuff man a oil and vaseline up fi tru
but i and i nuh inna none a dat , it wont do
cause anytime mi si di likkle bad pinky loo,mi haffi sing seh"

So there you have it. According to the song, playing number 3-1 means doing some activity that homosexual males do. Hence the reaction from our males in society. Mystery solved!

Thanx for clearing that up, I had always wondered how it began.
