Boudreaux and Thibodaux

Boudreaux and Thibodaux are walking down the street in Beaumont, just over the Louisiana line in Texas , and they see a sign on a store which reads:


Suits $5.00 each! Shirts $2.00 each Pants $2.50 each.


Boudreaux says to Thibodaux, "Look here, we could buy a whole bunch of dem, take 'em back to Lafayette, sell 'em to our friends and dem down da bayou, and make a fortune.  Just let me do the talkin' 'cause if they hear you accent, they might think we're ignorant Cajuns, and won't wanna sell dat stuff to us. Jes watch, I'll talk real sophisticated so's they think we’s from Lufkin or somewheres over here in Texas ."


They go in and Boudreaux says with his best fake sophisticated Texas accent, "I'll take 50 of them suits at $5.00 each, 100 of them there

shirts at $2.00 each, 50 pairs of them there pants at $2.50 each. I'll back up my pickup and..."


The owner of the shop interrupts. "Ya'll are Cajuns are from over by Jeanerette, New Iberia or somewheres, aren't you?"


"Well...yeah," says a surprised Boudreaux. "How’d you knowed dat?"


"Because this is a Dry Cleaners."
