Re: Boudin balls
It's waaaay off the thread, but did ya'll hear about the Cajun who was in federal court being tried for killing a whooping crane? He was in deep doo-doo. Had been caught way out in the swamp, eating the whooper. Given a chance to speak for himself after the defense rested, he told his story. "I was lost for 4 days in dat swamp and was plenty hongry wen I saw dis big bird. I snuck close enough in de watta to knock him out wit a stick. Den I was eatin 'im an de game warden found me. At firs, I was real glad to see him, but den he tol me I was unda arres' so here I am Judge, an I tell you, wen you bout to starve, you gonna eat sumptin, an dat's wat happen.
The Judge gave him a chewing out for getting lost, a misdemeanor sentence even though it's a federal felony crime, and 6 months probation. After adjourning court, the Judge, a midwesterner, stopped the very relieved Cajun and said; I'm very curious, what does a whooping crane taste like? The Cajun thought for a minute, and replied, well Judge, it tase a lot like Ball Eagle........
I think that it's an old joke, but down in the Chocahoula it could be true .
I used to work on a shrimp boat, and we sold a lot of shrimp in Cameron, Grand Isle, and up the Bayou LaFourche at Golden Meadows. I was 17 yrs old, and decided if I wasn't a Redneck, I would want to be a Coonass. Golden Meadows had a Catholic Church, a shrimp and net house, a Service Station, a small grocery and clothing store, and FIVE hellaciously big dance halls. What a place!!!!!
