Dat Boudreaux Ain't Me, It's Ma Cousin by Larry Boudreaux

Boudreaux is not considered very bright in Cajun humor circles. Larry Boudreaux, the author, wanted to write this book with Boudreaux and Thibodeaux jokes but did not want folks to think that Boudreaux was him. It is his cousin. The book contains 150 "clean" jokes and can be shared by mixed company of all ages. A Cajun dictionary is included for folks who need to know the definitions of some of the words used in the book. Larry Boudreaux has included a couple of good Cajun recipes too.

About the Author

Larry Boudreaux, whose roots are in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is a direct tenth generation descendant of Michel Boudrot and Michelle Aucoin, who were born in France and settled in Acadia, (originally Nova Scotia where all Cajuns (Acadians) originated). Later, his ancestors settled in and around the Bayou LaFouche area located in what is today Assumption Parish, Louisiana. His grandfather, a blacksmith on a sugar plantation in Iberville Parish, moved his large family to Baton Rouge to avail himself of its opportunities. Larry was born in New Orleans, LA during WWII, where his dad served in the US Merchant Marines. Raised in Baton Rouge, Larry, a Vietnam veteran, graduated from Baton Rouge High and served in the US Navy for four years. After attending two years at LSU, he moved to Houston, TX to join the working world as a sales trainee for a major office machine manufacturer. He was transferred to Tennessee as sales manager, where he also finished his BS in Business at the University of Tennessee. He then transferred back to Houston where he became a partner in a successful business. Throughout his moves and travels, Larry always missed his Louisiana roots, so he returned home in 1990. “There is no place like home, especially if it is in Louisiana,” explains Larry, who is very proud of his heritage and In fact, wants to do what he can to make others understand the logic of this unique place. He knows that a lot of people who don’t live in Louisiana feel that Cajuns are just a bunch of backward people. Consequently, Larry asks, “What standard determines backward? Could it be enjoying life with God, your family, and your friends’? Thus; he reminds all who listen; Louisiana is a full functioning state, which doesn’t have to import its doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc. Louisiana grows it’s own. In fact we do it with a sense of humor.
