In preperation for the next Saints game... a little bit of Boudreaux.
One day Boudreaux was driving the car with Clotile in the passenger seat.
A policeman pulled Boudreaux's car over to the side of the road and the policeman came to the window of the car next to Boudreaux.
The policeman told Boudreaux that he was speeding and that he would have to give Boudreaux a speeding ticket.
Boudreaux tells the policeman that he was not speeding. Boudreaux then turns to Clotile and says, "Mais, Clotile you was watchin me. Tell de officer if dats true dat I was speedin!"
Clotile turns to the officer and says, "Mais officer, I can't tell you whether my husband was speedin because I don't pay attention to him when he's drunk!".
Boudreaux once had a job as a taxicab driver in Baton Rouge.
One day, he picked up a Texan on his way to the airport. When they passed by the LSU football stadium, the Texan said "What's that?"
Boudreaux said, "Dat's Tiger Stadium."
The Texan said, "How long did it take y'all to build it?"
Boudreaux said, "Mais, about five years."
The Texan said, "Oh, we've got a bigger one in Austin that only took one year."
As they passed the state capitol, the Texan asked again, "What's that building?"
Boudreaux said, "Dat's the state capitol".
"And how long did it take y'all to build that?"
Boudreaux said, "About three years."
The Texan said, "We've got one in Austin that only took six months."
Boudreaux had just about enough of this, you know. Then they drove past the Mississippi River Bridge.
The Texan said, "How long did it take y'all to build that bridge?"
Boudreaux said, "I don't know. It wasn't there this morning."
This Louisiana game warden had been keeping an eye on the fishing docks, when after about a week he noticed that Boudreaux had been coming back every day with a boat full of fish. One day he starts to talk to Boudreaux as he's pulling his boat in. The warden says,'Boudreaux, I been watchin you. I notice every day dat you been comin' in wid a full load of fish. You must be havin some good luck? Eh?" Boudreaux answers, "May yah, dem fish is easy to catch." The game warden replies, "Well listen. I got me a day off comin next Saturday. I was wondring, maybe I could go an fish wid you?" Boudreaux replies, "May dat be no problem. Jus make shore you be here at dat 6 a.m. sharp. Cause I gonna leave dis dock wid or widout you." "May I'll be here, don't chu worry none about dat" answers the warden.
Saturday comes and the game warden is waiting at the dock when Boudreaux pulls up and puts his boat in the water. The game warden gets in and Boudreaux proceeds to drive the boat out to the middle of the lake. At this point, Boudreaux shuts off the engine and lets the boat glide to a stop. The game warden, who'd been curious anyway, says to Boudreaux, "May Boudreaux, I been lookin aroun dis boat, and I notice dat all you don brought was dis here ice-chest and dat little brown paper bag under your seat. May, you don't even got no fishin pole." Boudreaux answers, "May, dat be because dats all I need" And he proceeds to pull a stick of dynamite out of the brown paper bag, lights it, thows it in the water and watches it go boooom! All the fish in the area, being stunned, float to the top of the water.
The warden, by this time, can't believe his eyes. Half yelling, he says to Boudreaux, "May Boudreaux, I know we been knowin each udder for a long time, but man, you can't be doing dat, especially wid me being a game warden n all. May, dat's agin de law in a big way dat is." Boudreaux, without say a word, calmly reaches down into the bag (with the warden still rattling off), pulls out a stick, lights it, hands it to the warden and says, "You gonna talk, or you gonna fish?"
