Boudreaux & Thibodaux on Scuba Diving



In honor of the last days of summer vacation and the sports that fill these months, today we join "da boys" as they contemplate the prospect and science of scuba diving.

Thanks for sending me this one, Daddy!

~~~~

On a hot summer day, Boudreaux and Thibodaux, otherwise known as doze bess friends Boo & Thib (Tib), is down on da bayou fishin' in Thib's ol beat up pirough (aluminum boat) and drinkin' a few cold ones. After a few hours in da hot sun, dey ain't havin' no luck, dem, so Boo starts tinkin' 'bout something else dey might do for fun.

Boo, he ax (asks) Thib, " Mais, Tib, what you tink about us goin' to dem Florida Keys down dere and tryin' us some scuba divin' for a change? We can git down under dat cool water instead'a fryin' out in da sun!"

"Hmmm, I don't know, me. What you know 'bout scuba divin'? I ain't never been," Thib say.

Boudreaux, him tink for a minute or two, den he says, "Me? I don't know nuttin' 'bout it, but how hard can it be? You got your mask on to breath trew, and dem big flipper tings on ya feets, and a air tank for dat oxygen, right?"

Thib tinks on dat for a while, den says, "I guess you right. But I got one question. How come dem scuba divers, dey always fall off dere boats backwards, Boo?"

Boudreaux baits his hook, trows his line back in da water and answers Thibodaux, "Thib, you dumb a$$, you! What you tink'? If dey fell forwards, dem scuba divers would still be in da boat!"

When you fall forward, the nasty knot on the head is tough to get the mask over too.
