A local recently edumacated me about Boudreaux & Thibodeau jokes. I grew up in MA where every joke started with a Rabbi & a Priest…what do I know? I went on to Lousiana 101 to learn a little more. Now I get it…sort of. Example…

After he was dead, a Cajun discovered himself in Hell. He looked around awhile, then went right to work shoveling brimstone. The devil came up to him and said, “How you like it here, my friend? It’s hard work and it’s hot, yeah?”

The Cajun just smiled and answered, “It not so bad. The work is steady. I got no problem with steady work. And it ain’t so hot. You think this is hot? Man, I’m from south Lousiana — It hot there, my fren! This ain’t nothing.” He just laughed and went back to work singing and having a high old time.

Satan, being a former Texan, did not like Cajuns. He said to himself, “I’ll get him. So he don’t mind the hot, huh?” Satan waved a hand and the whole place was suddenly ice and snow, solid. And he said, “That’ll fix dat fool!”

When he went back to check on the Cajun, he found him jumping up and yelling and laughing and clapping and dancing. So Satan said, “Man, what’s wrong with you?!”

The Cajun smiled big and replied, “The Saints done won the Super Bowl!

  1. Ha!

    Have told you that I’m a lifelong Saints fan? Yep, even through the “dark years”, which actually is about 95% of their existence. Oh Golf Guy said to tell you that I’m a RABID Saints fan. He says that’s more accurate and will give you a better idea of my mental state during games. I don’t think I’m THAT bad!
