Cajun Humor

Here are a few cajun jokes that were emailed to me.
I hope you enjoy them.

Boudreaux and Thibodaux decide dey gonna go ice fishin.

Dey stop at a store on da side of da road and axe the cashier where dey can go ice fishin.
Da man says "there is a frozen lake across the road and I got bait and ice picks to break the ice to fish. "

An hour later Boudreaux goes to da store to buy some more ice picks. He tells the cashier "I want all the ice picks you got."

The guy says are "you catching that much fish?"

Boudreaux says "Catching fish?"
" We never even launch the boat yet"!

One day, a Cajun died and went to hell.
The devil was making his rounds and saw the Cajun over in the corner having a party. "Hey, you! said the devil. "You're not supposed to be having a good time in hell. After all, it's burning hot in here."

"Oh," said the Cajun, "It's not that hot in here. It gets this hot in Louisiana in July."

The devil left but was determined to make it uncomfortable for the Cajun, so he turned up the temperature even more.

Later the devil passed back by the Cajun and saw him boiling crawfish and having an even better time. "Hey!" said the devil. "You stop that! You're not supposed to be enjoying yourself in here. This is hell and it's burning hot in here."

"It's no big deal," said the Cajun. "It gets this hot in Louisiana in August."

The devil left very angry at the Cajun and determined to make him uncomfortable. "Okay," said the devil. "If you like the heat, I'm going to make it cold", and then turned down the thermostat until it was freezing cold.

When he went back to check on the Cajun, he saw from afar that the Cajun was jumping up and down in a frenzy, throwing up his hands, laughing and smiling.
"This is really too much!! Why is he so happy?"
As he got close to the Cajun, he heard him shout "The Saints won the SuperBowl!! The Saints won the SuperBowl!!"

Boudreaux and Thibodaux died and went to Heaven.
When they got to the Gate, they met ol' Saint Peter.
They said, "Saint Peter, beb, how you been?"
Saint Pete said, "Mais ok, sha, but ah got bad news for you Boudreaux. You been so bad on Earth, you got to spend all Eternity with an ugly woman."
Boudreaux was pretty sad but he said, "Well, if ah hafto, ah hafto."
So the next day him and his ugly woman was walking down the golden street when they saw Thibodaux and he was with Carmen Elecktra!
So Boudreaux went talk to Saint Peter. He said, "Saint Peter, sha, come see. Ah think we got a mistake here. How come Thibodaux gets Carmen Elecktra and Ah got stuck with dis ugly woman!"
Saint Pete said, :"Aw, Boudreaux, you dont understand, Carmen Elecktra got stuck with Thibodaux!"
