Search for the word ‘dung‘ using Google. Or a dictionary. Or an old person. Google displays two definitions: The excrement of animals (noun) and to drop or spread dung on (verb).
The web version of the Oxford Dictionary offers a similar view, as does Merriam-Webster, but in a more evocative and visual sense. We are grateful that technology has not yet progressed to the point where we can smell what we are searching for.
And the old person? Well the nearest one we could find had this to say: “Wuh you mean wuh is dung? Like cow dung? Dung is shite man!” He then let out a loud stupes (i.e., sucked his teeth), turned and walked away muttering.
Based on the above, it’s obvious that dung is something unpleasant. And smelly. Not something that we would ingest or spend plenty of time being associated with. Dung is animal excrement (shit).
Yet the organizers of the BGI Riddim Project would have us think otherwise – see page 10 04/01/16 edition of Barbados Today – by having us listen to their recently released “Loc Dung Riddim,” part of their six albums in six months project.
