Dem Cajuns in Noo Yawk



Thanks to my dad for sending me another great Boudreaux & Thibodaux joke for your Sunday viewing pleasure!


Two businessmen in New York are sitting down for a break in their soon-to-be open new store. As yet, the store isn't ready, and only a few shelves are set up.

One says to the other, "I bet any minute now some tourist is going to walk by, put his face to the window and ask what we're selling."

No sooner are the words out of his mouth when, sure enough, Boudreaux, in town for some important "bidness" walks by the window, stops and peeks in. The store owners listen to his Cajun accent, trying to understand what he's saying:

"Mais sha (may shah -- hey, cher/friend), what y'all sellin' in dare (there)?"
The two men laugh, thinking Boudreaux is some dumb hick from the swamps. One elbows the other and replies, "Oh, we're selling a-holes in here!" and they just about kill themselves laughing.

Without skipping a beat, Boudreaux says, "Hoo-boy! Well, I see y'all doin' a durn good job; you only got two leff (left)!"


Moral? Don't mess wit (with) dem Cajuns!

Many Northerners like to make fun of Southern accents, they tend to make the assumption that anyone with a Southern accent is dumb. What's up with that? I like this joke.
