A construction site boss was interviewing men
for a job, when along came Boudreaux. The
boss thought I'm not hiring that lazy Cajun, so
he decided to set a test for Boudreaux, hoping
he wouldn't be able to answer the questions,
and he'd be able to refuse him the job without getting into an argument.
The first question was, without using numbers, represent the number 9.
Boudreaux says, "Dat's easy" and proceeds to draw three tree's.
The boss says, "What the hells that?"
Boudreaux says "Tree 'n tree n' tree makes nine".
Fair enough, says the boss. Second question, same rules, but represent 99.
Boudreaux stares into space for a while, then makes a smudge on each tree. "Der ya go sir" he says.
The boss scratches his head and says, " How on earth do you get that to represent 99?
Boudreaux says "each tree's dirty now! so it's dirty tree, n' dirty tree n' dirty tree, dats 99.
The boss is getting worried he's going to have to hire him, so he says, "All right, question three. Same rules again, but represent the number 100".
Boudreaux stares into space again, then he shouts, "I got it!" he makes a little mark at the base of each tree, and says "There ya go sir. 100."
The boss looks at Boudreaux's attempt and thinks, Ha! got him this time. "Go on Boudreaux, you must be crazy if you think that represents a hundred."
Boudreaux leans forward and points to the marks at the tree bases, and says, "A little dog comes along and craps by each tree, so now ya got, dirty tree an' a turd, dirty tree an' a turd, and dirty tree an' a turd, which makes a hundred, when do I start my job?"
Two Cajun commercial fishermen, Boudreaux & Thibodeaux, went out in the Gulf fishing. They were gone a couple of months. On their return, they noticed a Taco Bell had been built while they were away.
Boudreaux turns to Thibodeaux and says "Look at dat, we not gone no time and dem damn Mexicans done come over here and built a telephone company!"
A young blonde was on vacation in the depths of Louisiana. She wanted a pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way, but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking.
After becoming very frustrated with the "no haggle" attitude of one of the shopkeepers, the blonde shouted, "Maybe I'll just go out and catch my own alligator so I can get a pair of shoes at a reasonable price!"
The shopkeeper said, "By all means, be my guest. Maybe you'll luck out and catch yourself a big one!"
Determined, the blonde turned and headed for the swamps, set on catching herself an alligator.
Later in the day, the shopkeeper is driving home when he spots the young woman standing waist deep in the water, shotgun in hand.
Just then, he sees a huge 9 foot alligator swimming quickly toward her. She takes aim, kills the creature and with a great deal of effort hauls it on to the swamp bank. Laying nearby were several more of the dead creatures.
The shopkeeper watches in amazement. Just then the blonde flips the alligator on it's back, and frustrated, shouts out, "Damn it, this one isn't wearing any shoes either!"
