Boudreaux Does Bank Bidness

Boudreaux walks into a big fancy bank in New York City and asks to see a loan officer. He tells him, "Mais, it time for me to get back home to da Louisiana swamps for some bidness. I'll be gone two weeks, yeah. Now, to do dat, I need you to borrow me $5,000 dollars."

The bank employee is surprised when he finds out Boudreaux doesn't have an account at his bank. Not wanting to appear rude, he tells him, "Mr. Boudreaux, I'll be glad to help you, but I'll need something as security for the loan."

"Mais, Mr. Banker Man, dat's no problem, no. Here's da keys to my new Ferrari!" Boo points to the shiny red car sitting at the curb in front of the bank.

The loan officer agrees to hold the car for collateral. He says, "I'm just sorry to have to charge you 12% interest."

"Oh, dat's no problem. I understand bidness is bidness."

After Boudreaux leaves, the bank employers laugh and laugh at the stupid Cajun for using a $250,000 car as collateral for a $5,000 loan. One of the underlings moves the car to safety in the bank's underground garage.

As good as his word, in two weeks Bourdreaux returns to the bank and repays the $5,000 plus the $23.07 in interest. The loan officer says, "Sir, we're so happy to have done business with you and hope we have the opportunity again. We just have one question. While you were away, we did some checking and found out you're a multimillionaire in the seafood industry. Why would you bother borrowing $5,000?"

Boudreaux grins and says, "Mais, where else in New York City could I park my new Ferrari for two weeks for under $25.00 and know it'd be there when I came back?"

Love it! Reminds me to share my abbrev. joke about Mahatma Ghandi.

He never wore shoes so his feet got tough. He ate rice and beans so he was a dainty sort. He was a seer of the divine. His diet and lack of dental attention left him with chronic bad breath.

He was a super-calloused, fragile mystic, hexed by halitosis.

I've wondered about that Bing thing - what do you think? still liking it? I'll have to try it out.

Miss you friend ... *sob*

PS: The Chinese symbols '下位总统?' translate as 'the next president?' so I'd suggest opting for a better phrase than that to get tatooed. :)
