“Coke in Poke” was the headline in Kaieteur News (KN – November 20, 2015) referencing an article about two St Lucian women attempting to smuggle cocaine out of Guyana.

Was this junk reporting masquerading as journalism intended to be funny, a joke about women’s private parts. Did you find this funny when you allowed it to be published?
