ON VACATION

On vacation in Missouri! Or should I say Misery! Its like 98% humidity and about 80 degrees today. Oh well I guess I will just have to go golfing! Whoo Hoo! I will leave you with this nice little joke from my uncle!

Boudreaux, the Baptist

Boudreaux, a Cajun highlander from Rapides Parish in central Louisiana, was an older, single gentleman, who was born and raised a Baptist, now living in South Louisiana. Each Friday night after work, he would fire up his outdoor grill and cook a venison steak. Now, all of Boudreaux's neighbors were Catholic... and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on Fridays. The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks was causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest. The priest came to visit Boudreaux, and suggested that Boudreaux convert to Catholicism. After several classes and much study, Boudreaux attended Mass... And, as the priest sprinkled holy water over him, he said, "You were born a Baptist and raised a Baptist, but now you are Catholic."

Boudreaux's neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived, and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighborhood. The neighbors called the priest immediately and, as he rushed into Boudreaux's yard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he stopped in amazement and watched. There stood Boudreaux, clutching a small bottle of water, which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat, and chanted: "You wuz born a deer, and you wuz raised a deer, but now you a catfish."

Somebody needs to talk to the writer of that joke, it's all backwards.

Here's a good Boudreaux and Thibodeaux joke:

Thobodeaux's wife Marie (pronounced Mah-REE) was looking for here husband a Christmas present. She went to the Mall Of Lafayette and walked in one of the stores where she was greeted by a sales clerk who politely asked, "May I help you?"

Marie said, "Mais ouis! I'm lookin' fo' a present fo' my husband."

The clerk asked, "Does he hunt or fish?"

Marie said, "Oh Mais ya! He hunt and fish all de time."

The clerk suggested Marie buy her husband a thermos. Marie being somewhat ignorant when it came to new-fangled technology, she asked the clerk what a thermos was. The clerk explained that thermos kept hot food hot, and cold food cold. So Marie purchased the thermos and anxiously awaited Christmas and her husband's reaction to this impressive gift.

On Christmas morning, Thibodeaux opened his gift from Marie. Like his wife, Thibodeaux was not very technology savvy. He inquired, "Mais Marie, what da heck is dis?"

Marie said, "Tib, you don't know nuttin'! Dat's a Termos."

Thibodeaux, still confused, asked, "What's it do."

"Dang it Tib, I can't believe you don't know what a termos does! It keeps hot tings hot, and cold tings cold."

The next day, Thibodeaux and his friend Boudreaux went down to Montague to go fishing. Later that morning, Thibodeaux got hungry, and pulled out his new Christmas present. Boudreaux was mystified by this odd looking thing, and asked excitedly, "Tib, what da hell is dat ting?"

Thobodeaux said, "Mais Boudreaux, you don't know nuttin'! Dat's a termos. It keeps hot tings hot and cold tings cold."

Boudreaux said, "Tonnerre mon chien, what you got in dat termos?"

Thibodeaux said, "A bowl of gumbo and two popsicles."
