Friday Foibles ~~ Bad Ol' Boudreaux

Happy Friday mes amis! Hope your weekend is brimming with good, relaxing (or exciting, if that's what you're after) good times with friends and family.

Enjoy the latest installment of our adventures with those crazy Cajuns, Boudreaux [Boo-droe] and Thibodaux [Tib-uh-doe], or as they're known around these parts, Boo & Thib.


Boudreaux owned a large farm down in the St. Martinville, Louisiana swamplands, and had enjoyed playing at being a farmer for many years. He especially loved his large pond nearby. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he'd fixed it up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees so his buddies (including his best friend Thibodaux) could enjoy the surroundings when they came over to crack open a few cold ones together.

One evening, ol' farmer Boo decided to go down to his pond, as he hadn't been there for a while to look it over. He grabbed a five-gallon bucket to bring back some fruit for his wife Clotilde.

As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. Getting closer, Boudreaux saw a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond.
 He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to him, "Hey! We're not coming out until you leave!"

Boo frowned and said, "Mais, dis mah pond, but I didn't come down to watch you ladies swim nekkid, no, or to make you get out my pond nekkid! Mais non, dat not da kinda ting a Cajun gentleman do." (Hey, no, that's not the kind of thing a Cajun gentleman does.)

The trespassing lady skinnydippers shuffle around nervously in the water not knowing what to do.

Holding the bucket up high for them all to see, wiley ol' Boudreaux says, "Mais, I'm juss (just) here to feed mah alligators!"
