A Cajun Joke


One day, while fishing under the I-10 bridge in the Atchafalaya Basin,
Boudreaux made a confession.
"We all been friends for thirty year and been tru a lot. I never told
ya'll dis befo 'cause I don't wanna ruin our friendship, but I'm gay."
Fontenot looked over at Thibodeaux and say, "We kinda figured dat out
a while back, but wadn't gonna say nuttin' 'cause we didn't wanna
embarrass you"
Boudreaux thanked them for their understanding and continued, "Da
reason I'm tollin' ya'll dis is 'cause I got AIDS and I got six munt
to liv. Ya'll da only family I got lef and I want ya'll to promise me
dat ya'll won't let dem bary me. I'm scared of dem caskets and I
wanna be cre mate. Den, I want ya'll to throw my ashes from dat
bridge up dair into dis swamp where we've spent so much time
Fontenot and Thibodeaux wiped back a few tears, then agreed to do what
their friend asked.
Shore nough, six munts later Boudreaux died, and they were standing on
the bridge with the ashes. Fontenot was about to throw them out when
Thibodeaux stopped him: Wait, you gotta say sumtin," he say.
"I donno what to say. I never was much about goin' to church,"
Fontenot admitted.
Thibodeaux, he scratch his head, "Just say somtin'.... anyting. Make
it rhyme."
Fontenot, he tought about it a while and started trowin' dem ashes out
over da swamp and say, "Ashes to ashes, Dus to dus, if you'd a liked
women, you'd be here wit us."
