Boudreaux Joke: Vacation Plans –
By Wayne Halm –
Between the weather, doctor visits, honey-dos and weddings I haven’t played golf this week. So I decided to offer you something from my South Louisiana Heritage instead, a Boudreaux Joke.
For those not familiar with Boudreaux Jokes: Boudreaux and Thibodeaux are two buddies from the bayou country of south Louisiana – they are not the sharpest knives in the drawer. Charmaine is Boudreaux’s wife, she is really pretty. They all speak Cajun which is considered a strong dialect of English by some – but I have softened the dialogue so all can understand it.
Deep in the south of Louisiana mosquitoes and Boudreaux Jokes are ubiquitous; people are constantly slapping one and hearing the other. The mosquitoes we could do without, but the Boudreaux Jokes are a joy. Below is one of them.
One summer afternoon Boudreaux was fishing off the front of his flatboat and Thibodeaux was fishing off the back. The fish weren’t biting so the boys were taking a beer break.
“I tink its ‘bout time I take anutta vacation,” Boudreaux said.
“I know jus da place ya needa go,” Thibodeaux announced.
“No Thibodeaux, I ain’t gonna ax for nuna yo add vice.”
“Well tree years ago you told me ta goda Paris, and Charmaine got pregnant.”
“But you passed a good time, rite?”
“Yeah. Din da nex year you say Hawaii is where I wanna go, and Charmaine got pregnant.”
“But you passed a good time , rite?”
“Yeah. Din las year you told me to goda Rome, and Charmaine got pregnant again.”
“But you passed a good time, rite? So what’s da trouble wit my add vice? What you gonna do Boudreaux?”
“Well, dis year I gonna go someplace cheaper. Dat way I can take her wit me.”
Did you find that funny? I have a whole books of them on Amazon. Click on the picture below and look at the book. (You can cheat just a little by using the “Look Inside” feature.)
Read the book then – Come play golf with me.
