Boo & Thib Go Fishin'





**For you non-Cajuns, it's Boo-droe & Tib-uh-doe.

Boudreaux goes an picks up his bon ami Thibodaux to go fishin' wit him down in da bayou. Dey fish all day an finally run outta dem night crawlers.

Boo, him's 'bout ready to leave when he spots a snake wit a big frog in his mout. Boudreaux, bein' one smart Cajun, knows dat dem big bass fish likes frogs, so he decides to steal dat froggie right out of dat snake's mout.

Thib looks over at his frien' an says, "Mais Boo, dat's a cotton mout water moccasin, yeah! You better be real careful or you gonna git bit!"

"Mais, you tink I'm some kinda cooyon {crazy/stupid person}, Thib? I know what I'm doin', but tanks."

So Boudreaux sneaks up behine dat snake and grabs him roun' da head. Dat ol snake, him don't like dat one bit. He squirm and wrap hisself all up around Boo's arm tryin' to git free. But Boudreaux, him has a tight grip on da snake's head, yeah, and pries dat snake's mout open to git da little frog for his bait can.

Now, Boudreaux know he cain't let go da snake or he's gonna git bit good, so he tinks up a plan. Boo reaches into da back pocket of his bib overhauls and pulls out a pint of his Uncle Fouchon's moonshine likker, and he pours a few drops into da snake's wide open mout.

Well, dat snake's eyeballs roll way back in his head and his body go limp all of a sudden. And wit dat, Boo trows it back in da bayou *splash* and goes back to fishin' wit Thib.

Juss a little while later, Boo feels sumptin tappin' on his barefoot big toe. He look down and dere's da cotton mout water moccasin again...wit two more frogs in his mout.

Dat life shore be good on da bayou, yeah!

I absolutely love this post.... and I am trying very hard to stop larfin'..... it's that crazy cajun accent that's running though my brain after reading that!

A real rib ticker! I should've done the same thing when a snake came slithering to our backyard last month. Though my brain got a little twisted here and there coz of the cajun accent, it did well to keep the unique atmosphere unique to the people who live down there in the bayou region.
