Boudreaux & Thibodaux Use a Measurin' Stick




Boudreaux, him walkin' down da road one day when his friend Thibodaux approaches from da udder direction carryin' him a long long bamboo fishin' pole and a yardstick.

Da two friends, dey stop and talk awhile. Thib, he stands dat pole straight up in da air, and den he tries to reach up to da very tippy top wit da yardstick. Seeing it just ain't gonna work, ol' Boo yanks da pole from Thib's hands, lays it down on da sidewalk and measures it.

"Dere you go! It's 12 foots long," says Boudreaux. Thib, him upset and irritated, yeah. He grabs dat yardstick and yells at Boo, "You fool! I don't wanna know how long dat pole is! I wanna know how high it is!"
