Jimmy Fallon is known for his musical parodies. Whether he’s making fun of Neil Young or Bob Dylan, Barry Gibb or Mick Jagger, Fallon loves a good parody of a music legend. Well, Fallon got a taste of his own medicine last night, as Saturday Night Live veteran and current star of The Last Man On Earth Will Forte stopped by The Tonight Show last night to poke a little fun at Gregg Allman.Portrayed as a special guest of The Roots, Forte fashioned himself as “Gregg Almond” from the “Almond Brothers”. Forte’s character claimed that the Allman Brothers are just a rip-off version of his Almond Brothers band and at one point he performs a joke-song with help from the band. There are a lot of almond/nut jokes and…well, I’ll let Forte and Fallon take it from here.See below for to watch Forte’s appearance as “Gregg Almond” on The Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon.
ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Just under the surface of Antiguan & Barbudan society lies a seedy underside of human trafficking that includes forced prostitution, according to regional experts on the issues of sex trade and the recent United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Caribbean Human Development Report on Citizen Security.The UNDP Report released early February states that criminal networks in the twin-island state were increasingly becoming involved in human trafficking.It was found that “a majority of prostitutes in the country were immigrant women forced into the sex trade.”The women interviewed, who were mainly from Guyana, Jamaica and St Lucia, said they were recruited with the promise of employment opportunities as bartenders, masseuses, hotel workers or dancers. However, upon arrival they were forced into prostitution.Janielle Matthews, writer of the Antigua & Barbuda section of the UNDP report, said, “It is not surprising that places that experience very high influx of people and high immigration also correspondently have high rates of human trafficking.”UNDP investigations found that organised crime groups obtained the co-operation of Antiguan & Barbudan immigration officers and senior officials, who were bribed to allow the women into the country.OBSERVER spoke to Lieutenant Colonel Ivor Walker, chief immigration officer, who admitted that immigration “has its problems,” but he was not aware of the UNDP report.However, Walker agreed to speak to OBSERVER once he reviewed the document.Sheila Roseau, executive director of Gender Affairs Directorate, says that human trafficking is a crime “with many faces” and that its operations are often disguised.Roseau also said the national task force that was formed in accordance with the Trafficking in Persons (Prevention) Act of 2010 has begun the implementation process.Meetings have been held with key agencies including Gender Affairs and immigration and police officers to provide training.Gender Affair urges those affected by trafficking or know of anyone being trafficked to contact their 24-hour crisis hotline at 463-5555.By Alicia SimonAntigua Observer Sharing is caring!
