Help me out, amigos -- I'm trying to come up with a short, humorous, fun Creole dictionary. What are your favorite words/phrases/proverbs?

I'm no expert, but it might be spelled Kriol and it's different from Creole. At least thats what I have read. I am sure some experts will join in soon!

As for spelling, Creole / Kriol is primarily a verbal, unwritten language. There is a movement to create a standard method of spelling and writing but at this time written representations are phonetic and pretty much inconsistent.

I took a van from BZE to Belmopan 2 summers ago. The driver tried to teach me Kriol while racing up the highway swerving around all manner of vehicle(anyone else know "G"). Anyway, maybe it's the lyrical combo accent, but I couldn't understand much.
