boudreaux and thibodeaux
The Code Word
Old Father Hebert, the local parish priest, got tired of hearing people in the confessional always confessing to having commited adultery. One Sunday, during his sermon, he announced, "If I hear one more person confess dat dey done committed adultery, I'm gonna quit !" Well, all of the parishioners really liked the old priest and didn't want to be the cause of him quitting, so they all got together and came up with the code word, "fallen", to be used by anyone neediing to confess to adultery. This seemed to satisfy old Father Hebert, and he continued being their pastor for a couple more years, until he passed away. The new priest that replaced him, Father Boudreaux, was a little puzzled, after his first couple of weeks, with all the people coming into the confesional saying that they had "fallen", so he went to see Mayor Thibodeaux. He told the mayor, "You really got to do something about the sidewalks in this town. People are always coming into the confessional telling me that they have 'fallen'. " Mayor Thibodeaux, popped out laughing, realizing that no one had told the new priest about the code word. Before the mayor had a chance to explain it to him, Father Boudreaux, shaking his finger at him, tells him, "Mais, I don't know why you laughing, your wife told me she done fell three times last week !"
Boudreaux Finds Marie Crying
Boudreaux walks into the house the other day to find Marie crying her eyes out. He asks, "Mais, Cher, what's wrong ?" Marie, through her tears, tells him, "I was takin' some ice cubes from de freezer, an' dropped dem on de floor. So I rinsed dem off in some hot water, an' now I can't finds' em !"
Boudreaux And The Devil
One bright sunshiney Sunday morning, Boudreaux was sitting in church, when all of a sudden, in a great flash of fire and smoke, who appeared, but old Satan himself. All of the congregation jumped up and stampeded out the front door, except old Boudreaux, who just sat in his place, apparently unimpressed. Satan goes over to Boudreaux, the only person left in the church, scowled at him and asked, "Hey, don't you know who I am ?" Boudreaux calmly replies, "Mais, yeh, I sure do." Satan asked, "Well, aren't you scared of me ?" Boudreaux, again calmly tells him, "Nope, ain't afraid of you." The devil, slightly confused, asks him, "Everybody is afraid of me, why aren't you ?" Boudreaux yawns, looks at the devil and tells him, "No reason to be. After all, I been married to your sister for forty years !"
Boudreaux's New Cellular Phone
Boudreaux was at the world-famous City Bar last night, showing off his brand new cellphone to all of his buddies. While he was telling them about it, it rang, so he pushed the button and said, "Mais, hello, dis is Boudreaux." He talked for a couple of minutes, disconnected, and with a surprised look, he told his buddies, "Dat was Marie. How you tink she knew I was here ?"
Thibodeaux's X-ray Glasses
Thibodeaux happened to walk by the novelty shop the other day, and decided to go inside to see what they had. After looking around, he found some X-ray glasses. The clerk told him that with these, he would be able to see through anything, including people's clothes. This sounded too good to Thibodeaux, and he bought a pair. He left the store with his new glasses, and as he walked down the street, he put them on, and sure enough, everybody he passed looked like they were naked. He took them off, and they were dressed. He put them on, and they looked naked again. He rushed home to show the glasses to Clotile, and as he walked into the house, he heard some strange noises coming from the bedroom. As he walked into the bedroom (wearing the glasses) he saw Clotile and Boudreaux lying on the bed naked. He took the glasses off, and even without the glasses, they still were naked. He told Clotile, "Cher, I'm goin' back to de novelty shop and get my money back. I done spent fifty bucks on dese glasses, and dey's broke already !"
Boudreaux and Marie were at the City Bar last Saturday night, when Marie spotted her Ex sitting at the other end of the bar, obviously well inebriated. Marie tells Boudreaux, "Boudreaux, you know dat man's been drinkin' like dat ever since I left him ten years ago." Boudreaux takes a sip of his beer, and tells her, "Don't flatter youself, Cher. Nobody celebrates dat much !"
The morning after their wedding night, Clotile tells Thibodeaux, "You know, Thib, you're not a very good lover!" Thibodeaux replies, "Yeh, like you can tell after jus' a minute and a half !"
One day Boudreaux asked Marie, "Cher, would you still have married me if my daddy hadn't left me all dat money ?" Marie tells him, "Boudreaux, I would have married you no matter who left you all dat money !"
Not long after Boudreaux and Marie got married, Marie and Clotile were visiting, and Clotile asked how the marriage was going. Marie tells her, "Let me told you, not so pretty good. Boudreaux eats like a real pig, don't ever takes a bath, an' leaves his dirty smelly clothes all over de house. He makes me so sick, I hardly eats anymore." Clotile asks her, "Mais, why for you don't leave him ?" Marie replys, "Oh, I'm planning to do dat, but only after I loses anudder twelve pounds !"
Boudreaux & Marie's Anniversary
Boudreaux and Marie were celebrating their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. Boudreaux took her out to eat at the nicest restaurant in town, took her to a movie, bought her flowers, and generally made it an evening to remember. Marie told him, "Boudreaux, dis is de nicest anniversary I done ever had." Boudreaux says, "Oh, Cher, de night's not over yet." When they got home, he gives her a a small box wrapped up real pretty. Marie opened the box to find two small pills in it. She asked, "Mais, Boudreaux, what's dem little pills ?" Boudreaux tells her they are aspirins. Marie says, "But, Boudreaux, I don't have a headache." Boudreaux replies, "Cher, dat's good to know. Like I told you, de night ain't over yet !"
"Tee" Boudreaux At The Pool
"Tee" Boudreaux was at the local public swimming pool yesterday, when one of the lifeguards approached him, "Hey, you can't pee in the pool. I'm gonna have to ask you to leave." "Tee" Boudreaux tells him, "But everybody pees in de pool." The lifeguard replies, "Yeh, but not from the diving board !"
Boudreaux & Thibodeaux's Reunion
Boudreaux & Thibodeaux were going their seperate ways, both having new jobs, but across the country from each other. They decided to spend their last night in town drinking together. (What else?) As they were preparing to call it a night, they agreed to meet back at the same bar in ten years for a reunion. Ten years to the day, Boudreaux walked in and spotted his old buddy sitting at the bar. Walking up to him, he exclaimed, "Thibodeaux, my old friend, I'm really surprised to see you here. When we left here ten years ago, I figured I'd never see you again." To which Thibodeaux replies, "Who left ?"
Boudreaux Is Missing
Boudreaux had been missing for a couple of days, and Clotile suggested to Marie that they should go to the Sheriff's Office to file a missing person report. When they got there, Deputy Guidry at the desk asked her for a description of Boudreaux for the report. Marie tells him, "Well, he's 25 years old, 6 foot 3, weighs 190 pounds, is very well-built and very handsome, soft-spoken, and treats me like a queen." Clotile, with a surprised look on her face says, "Marie, Boudreaux is 50 years old, 5 foot 4, weighs 260 pounds, fat like a pig and ugly as sin, loud and obnoxious, and treats you like trash !" Marie, smiling, says, "Yeh, but if dey can find dis one for me, Boudreaux can stay lost !"
Boudreaux Went To College
Boudreaux and Thibodeaux ran into each other the other day, and Thibodeaux remarked, "Boudreaux, where you been ? I ain't seen you in months." Boudreaux told him, "Mais, I been at college gettin' me some educate." Thib says, "Aw, dat's nice. What you learned in college ?" Boudreaux tells him, "I been studying sumting called 'Logic'." Naturally, Thibodeaux asks, "Mais, what dat is, dat 'Logic' ?" So Boudreaux says, "Well, it's easier for me to gives you an example, den to try to explain it. Do you have a dog ?" Thib tells him, "Mais, yeh, you knows I got old Blue." Boud goes on, "And if you gots a dog, dat means you mus' have a yard to keep dat dog in." Thib says, "Yeh." Boud says, "And if you gots a yard, you mus' have a fence around dat yard to keep old Blue in." Thib says, "Yeh." Boud says, "And if you gots a yard and a fence, den you mus' have a house, too." Thib says, "Yeh." "And if you gots a yard and a house, you mus' be married." Thib tells him, "Mais Boudreaux, you knows dat me and Clotile been married for thirty years." Boudreaux says, "Mais dat's 'Logic'." Thibodeaux is all excited, now that he understands what "Logic' is, and the next day he runs into Hebert at the feed store. They get to talking and Hebert asks him about Boudreaux. Thib tells him, "You knows, I saw him yesterday, an' he told me he been at college studying "Logic'." Hebert asks, "What dat is, dat "Logic' ?" Thibodeaux says, "Well, let me gives you an example. Do you got a dog ?" Hebert says, "No, I don't gots no dog." Thibodeaux tells him, "Mais, den you mus' be gay !"
Boudreaux At The Doctor's Office
Boudreaux walked into the doctor's office, and the receptionist asked what he had. Boudreaux tells her, "Shingles !" She wrote down his name, address, and medical insurance number, and told him to have a seat. A few minutes later a nurse's aid came out and asked him what he had. Boudreaux tells her, "Shingles !" The aid wrote down his height, weight, complete medical history, then told him to wait in the examination room. Another few minutes goes by and the head nurse comes in and asked him what he had. Boudreaux tells her, "Shingles !" She took his blood pressure, did a blood test, and an electrocardiogram, told him to take all his clothes off, and wait for the doctor. An hour later, the doctor comes into the room and asked what he had. Boudreaux tells him, "Shingles. Dey's outside in my truck. Where you wants me to stack 'em ?"
Boudreaux/Marie See A Marriage Counselor
Boudreaux and Marie had been married for several years, and, like alot of couples, had some rough times. They decided to go to a marriage counselor to try and work things out. When they arrived, the counselor jumped right in. "What seems to be the problem ?" he asked. Immediately, Marie started to relate all the bad habits Boudreaux has, what a bum he is, and everything else that was wrong with him. Poor Boudreaux couldn't get a word in. After a few minutes of listening to Marie's ranting, the counselor stood up, walked over to Marie, picked her up and kissed her passionately, then sat her back down. Marie just sat there, speechless, with a satisfied look on her face. Boudreaux just looked at her with disbelief on his face. The counselor tells Boudreaux, "That's the problem. Your wife NEEDS to have that at least twice a week. Boudreaux tells him, "Mais, OK, whatever you tink. I'll have her here every Tuesday and Thursday !"
Thibodeaux's Not Feeling Too Pretty Good
Thibodeaux wasn't feeling particularly well, so he paid a visit to Doctor Boudreaux. After the examination, Doc Boudreaux gives Thibodeaux three bottles of pills with the following instructions. "Thib, take a blue pill wid a big glass of water when you gets up in de morning. Take a red pill wid a big glass of water at lunch time, and den take a green pill wid a big glass of water just before you go to bed at night." Thibodeaux exclaims, "Good grief, Doc, can you tell me what's wrong wid me ?" Old Doc Boudreaux tells him, "Mais, yeh. You're not drinking enough water."
Boudreaux and Thibodeaux were again deep into their favorite pastime, drinking beer, when they suddenly both got the "Call of nature". They went into the men's room for the "pause that refreshes", and as Thibodeaux walked up to the urinal, he took his hand out of his pocket, accidently dropping a quarter into the urinal. He looks at it, Boudreaux looks at it, then Thibodeaux reaches back into his pocket, withdraws a dollar, and throws it into the urinal. Boudreaux asks him, "Mais, Thib, why for you throwed dat dollar in der ?" Thibodeaux tells him, "Mais, Boudreaux, you don't tink I'm gonna put my hand in der for jus' a quarter, do you ?"
"Tee" Boudreaux's Chores
Tee Boudreaux (Boudreaux Jr.) came downstairs for breakfast this morning, and when he sat at the table, his Momma, Marie, asked him if he had done his chores yet. Tee Boudreaux told her, "Mais, not yet, Momma." So Marie told him he had to do them before he got breakfast. Tee Boudreaux, not real happy now, proceeded to go out to the barnyard to feed the chickens. After he fed them, he kicked one of the chickens. Next he fed the pigs, and then kicked one of them. Then he milked the cow, and sure enough, kicked the cow, too. Walking back in the house, he found that his Momma had put a bowl of dry cereal on the table for him. So he says, "Momma, where's my bacon and eggs ?" Marie tells him, "Tee Boudreaux, I was watchin' you through de window, an' I saw you kick dat chicken. So you don't get no eggs. Den I saw you kick de pig, so you don't get no bacon. And den you kicked de cow, so dat's why you don't get no milk for your cereal." About that time, big Boudreaux comes walking down the stairs, and almost tripped over the family cat, and proceeds to kick the cat across the room. Tee Boudreaux looks at his Momma and asks her, "You wants to tell him, or should I ?"
Boudreaux & "Tee" Boudreaux
"Tee" Boudreaux wasn't doing too well in school, and Boudreaux was trying to shame him into studying more. He tells Tee Boudreaux, "You know, when Abraham Lincoln was your age, he would spend most of de night studying his books by candlelight." Tee Boudreaux replies, "Yeh, and by de time he was your age, he was President of de United States !"
Boudreaux & Thibodeaux Fly North
Boudreaux & Thibodeaux decided to fly their airplane up to Yankee country for a little vacation. As they are coming in for a landing, Boudreaux yells at Thibodeaux, "Pull up, pull up ! We're at de end of de runway." So Thibodeaux pulls up and goes around for another try. As he is attempting another landing, Boudreaux yells at him again, "Pull up, pull up ! We're at de end of de runway already." Thibodeaux pulls back on the stick and goes around again. As he is coming for his third try, he comments to Boudreaux, "Mais, you know, dese Yankees are pretty stupid, yeh. Dey made dis runway too short, but look at how wide dey made it."
The Long Walk
Boudreaux and Thibodeaux were walking down the levee towards Catahoula (not too far from Pont Breaux) one day. They had walked about 15 or 12 miles and hadn't said one word to each other the whole time. They finally get to where they can see Catahoula off in the distance. Boudreaux stops and yells at Thibodeaux, "Dammit, Thibodeaux, the next you tell a woman to 'put out or get out,' you better make sure we're in our truck, NOT IN HERS !"
Marie's Having An Affair
One day Boudreaux comes home from work, and as he drives up to the house, he sees a pick-um-up truck (also known as a country Cadillac) leaving his house, and head up the road. He walks in the house, takes his cap off, and sits in his rocking chair. He asks Marie, "Who dat was dat jus' left ?" Marie answers him, "Mais, dat was Clarence." Boudreaux says, "Oh, O. K." A few days later, Boudreaux gets home from work, and sees the same pick-um-up truck leaving. He walks into the house, takes his cap off, and sitting in his rocking chair, asks Marie, "Who dat was dat jus' left ?" Marie answers, "Mais, dat was Clarence." Boudreaux says, "Oh, O.K." The very next day, same thing. As Boudreaux walks into the house, he takes his cap off, and asks Marie, "Marie, let me guess ! Dat was Clarence dat jus' left again, right ?" Marie says, "Mais, yeah !" Boudreaux says, "Marie, are you and Clarence having an affair ?" Marie answers, "Mais, yeah!" With that, Boudreaux puts his cap back on, walks out the door, and climbs in his truck. Marie says, "Mais, Boudreaux. Where you goin' ?" Boudreaux replies, "I guess I gotta go find dat Clarence fella, and beat him up !" About five minutes later, Boudreaux drives back up to the house, walks in, takes his cap off and sits in his rocking chair. Marie says, "Boudreaux, you weren't gone very long ! What happened ?" Boudreaux tells her, "Marie, I was goin' find dat Clarence to beat him up ! But when I got to the overpass down the road, I saw dis big sign dat said 'Clarence-12'6" '. I figured it might be better for me to jus' came home and forget the whole thing !"
Boudreaux saw Thibodeaux walking into the doctor's office one day. He asked Thibodeaux what he was going to the doctor for. Thibodeaux told him, "I'm goin' to get me one of dem circumcisions !" Boudreaux says, "Whooee, dat's gonna hurt, yeh !" Thibodeaux, asked, "Are you sure dat circumcision hurts bad ?" Boudreaux replies, "Mais, let me put it dis way. I had me one of dem circumcisions when I was a baby, and I couldn't walk for a year."

The Golf Game
Boudreaux and Thibodeaux were playing a round of golf. Boudreaux was about ready to putt when he noticed a funeral procession passing by. Boudreaux stops, takes his cap off, putting it against his chest, until the procession had passed. He then picked up his putter and proceeded to continue the game. Thibodeaux comments, "Boudreaux, that was the nicest thing I ever seen you do, stopping your game like dat to show your respect." Boudreaux says, "Mais, Thib. Dat's the least I could do. After all, I was married to her for thirty years !"
Boudreaux and Thibodeaux got their friend Hebert to fly them to the north woods for a bear hunt. Hebert dropped them off and said that he would be back to pick them up in three days. They had a good hunt and killed six big bears. When Hebert showed up to pick them up, they started loading all their gear into the plane, including, of course, the six bears. Hebert said, "Oh, no, I can't carry all six of dem bears. The plane can't handle all that weight." Boudreaux and Thibodeaux argued with Hebert, reminding him that last year they had gone on a bear hunt, killed six bears, and he had flown them out that time in the same type of airplane he had this time. So Hebert finally agreed, and when they took off, of course the plane couldn't handle all the weight, and they crashed into the woods. As they crawled out of the wreckage, Thibodeaux asked, "Hey Boudreaux. Do you know where we are ?" Boudreaux replies, "Yeh, I tink dis is about de same place we crashed last year !"
Boudreaux & Marie Do The Town
Boudreaux walks into the house after a long day working in his fields, and as he walks in, Marie tells him, "Boudreaux, you looks like you had a rough day. Why don't we go out tonight, and have us a good time ?" Boudreaux says, "Well, OK, Marie, but if you gets back home before I do, leave de light on in de hallway."
Boudreaux Goes To Confession
Boudreaux went to confession last Saturday, and once in the confessional, told the priest that he had sinned. The priest asked him what he had done, and Boudreaux told him, "Mais Father, I done stole some lumber." Father asks, "And how much lumber did you steal ?" Boudreaux tells him, "Well, I built my coon dog a nice doghouse." Father said, "Well, my son, that doesn't sound too bad ...." Boudreaux interrupts saying, "Well, dat's not de whole truth. I done built me a four car garage, too." Father says, "Now that sounds a little more serious." Boudreaux again interrupts, saying, "Father, I can't lie to you, I gots to get it all off my chest. I built de doghouse, de four car garage, and a five bedroom house wid de lumber I stole." The priest, in total shock responded, "Well, now, that is really serious. For your penance, you're going to have to make a novena !" Boudreaux tells him, "Mais, Father, I ain't never made one of dem novenas, but if you got de blueprints, I gots de lumber !"
Boudreaux Is Dying
Boudreaux is lying on his deathbed, about to draw his last breath, and is surrounded by his wife and four sons. Three of the sons are tall, good looking, athletic, and intelligent. The fourth, is a short, ugly, homely as sin, and dumb as a tree. Boudreaux, mustering all the energy he has left, asks Marie, "Cher, before I goes, dere is one ting I wants to know. My fourth son, is he really mine ? If he isn't, I understands, but I gots to know for sure." Marie, interrupts, softly telling him, "Boudreaux, don't you worry 'bout dat. I promise you dat he is your son." Boudreaux then passes away, but he dies happy. Marie turns to the three good looking sons, and says, "I sure is glad he didn't ask me about y'all !"
The Family Reunion
Boudreaux and Marie attended a family reunion last weekend, and Boudreaux, as usual, made a fool out himself at the food table. Marie, after a while jumped Boudreaux's case, asking him, "Ain't you embarrased for youself ? You done been to de food table five times, already !" Boudreaux says, "Mais no, Cher, I jus' tells everybody dat I'm refilling your plate."
The New Bar
It was Friday afternoon, and Boudreaux & Thibodeaux had just gotten paid, and were discussing what they were going to do that night. Thibodeaux says, "I done heard there is a new bar that opened a few weeks ago dat is real nice. You go in, dey gives you a free drink, den you go upstairs and dey fix you up to get a little. Den you go back downstairs, gets anudder free drink, back upstairs and gets laid again, back downstairs, drink for free, back upstairs, gets some more, and when you ready to leave, dey gives you a hundred bucks, and invites you to come back." Boudreaux says, "Mais, Thib, dat sounds like our kind of place. How many times you been der ?" Thib tells him, "Mais, me I ain't been der yet, but Clotile told me about it. She went a few times !"
Clotile Has A Heart Attack
Thibodeaux gets home from work early one day, and when he walks into the bedroom, he finds Clotile puffing, panting and red as a beet. Thibodeaux gets all scared and exclaims, "Oh my God, Clotile you looks like you is having a heart attack ! I'm gonna call de doctor !" As he runs to the phone, he passes his kids in the hallway, crying and screaming. He asks what's wrong, and the kids tell him that there is a naked man in the bedroom closet. So Thibodeaux runs to the closet, jerks the door open, and sure enough, there's his best friend Boudreaux, in his birthday suit. Thibodeaux hollers at him, "Dammit, Boudreaux, Clotile's in here having a heart attack, and you over here, scaring de hell out of de kids !"
Old man Boudreaux, (87 years old) went to his doctor for a checkup before getting re-married to a voluptuous 22 year-old beauty. The doctor tells him, "You know, Boudreaux, you're in pretty good shape for a man of your years, and I know you're getting married to that young lady, but sex could be dangerous at your age. It could even be deadly." Boudreaux shrugs his shoulders and tells the doc, "Oh well, if she dies, she dies !"
Boudreaux & Marie Play Football
Boudreaux and Marie had just gone to bed one night, when Boudreaux rolled over on his side and passed gas rather loudly. He exclaims, "Seven points !" Marie asks him, "What dat was, Boudreaux ?" He tells her that it was a touchdown, and he is ahead seven to nothing. Marie, not to be outdone, lets one of her own go, and tells him, "Touchdown. We're tied." About ten minutes later Boudreaux has the urge again, and lets another one fly. "Touchdown he yells, 14-7 !" It takes Marie about a minute to match him again, and she yells, "Touchdown, me too. We tied again." Naturally, not to be outdone, Boudreaux tries again, but he done ran out of gas. He trys and trys, and finally starts to force one, but tries a little too hard, and unfortunately, has an "accident", and ends up pooping all over the bed instead. Marie asks him, Now what in de world dat was ?" Boudreaux tells her, "Halftime. Switch sides !"
( I know, it was a little crude. But kinda funny, anyway )
Thibodeaux's New Hearing Aid
Thibodeaux stopped by Boudreaux's house last week, and said, "Boudreaux, talk to me. Say anyting you wants to." Boudreaux thought this a little strange, and said so, but Thibodeaux explained, "Boudreaux I just got me a new hearing aid, and I wants to check it out. It's de best dat money can buy, costed me $5000.00." Boudreaux says, "Mais dat's nice, what kind is it ?" Thibodeaux says "Ten-thirty !"
The Sports Fan
Boudreaux was a big football fan. He lived, breathed, talked, and dreamed about football. He was always watching games on TV, reading the football news in the paper, and knew all the stats of evey player in the NFL. Problem was he paid very little attention to Marie, and she was getting very frustrated from the lack of affection. One day she walks in and finds Boudreaux in his usual spot watching a game on TV. She walks over and unplugs the set, much to Boudreaux's dismay. He yells, "Hey, what you tink you doin' ?" Marie tells him, "Boudreaux, You don't never pays no attention to me. I wants to talk about having sex !" Boudreaux says, "Well, OK, we can do dat. How often you tink John Elway gets laid ?"
The Deer Hunt
Boudreaux, Thibodeaux, and a bunch of their buddies were out on a deer hunting trip. Late one afternoon, Boudreaux walks into camp carrying a huge buck on his back. One of the guys asks, "Where Thibodeaux is ?" Boudreaux tells him, "He's back der in de woods a couple of miles. I tink he dun had a heart attack or sumting." The buddy, shocked, asks, "You mean you carried dat buck back, and left poor Thibodeaux laying out der in de woods ?" Boudreaux says, "Mais, yeh, it was a tough choice to make, but I figured nobody's gonna steal Thibodeaux !"
Boudreaux & Marie Go To New York
Boudreaux and Marie are in New York on vacation, and Boudreaux is going ga-ga over all the beautiful secretaries and models walking around in their ultra short skirts and revealing blouses. Marie, getting a little miffed at Boudreaux's looking at all the women, kind of lifts herself up and tells him, "Boudreaux, you act like you never done seen a real women's legs or breasts before." Boudreaux says, "Mais, you know, Marie, I was just tinking de same ting myself !"
Boudreaux gets home from work late one night and hears a voice in his head. The voice tells him, "Boudreaux, quit your job, sell your house, take you money and go to Las Vegas." Boudreaux is very disturbed at what he hears and ignores the voice. The next day when he gets home from work, the same thing happens. The voice tells him, "Quit your job, sell your house, take you money, go to Las Vegas." Again Boudreaux ignores the voice, though he is very troubled by the event. Every day, day after day, for about four or three days, Boudreaux hears the same voice when he gets home from work, "Quit your job, sell your house, take your money, go to Las Vegas." Each time he hears the voice he becomes increasingly upset. Finally, after two weeks, Boudreaux gives in. He quits his job, sells his house, takes his money and heads to Vegas. The moment he gets off the plane in Vegas, the voice tells him, "Go to Harrahs." So, he hops in a cab and rushes over to Harrahs. As soon as he sets foot in the casino, the voice tells him, "Go to the roulette table." Boudreaux does as he is told. When he gets to the roulette table, the voice tells him, "Put all you money on number 17." Nervously, Boudreaux cashes in his money for chips and then puts them all on 17. The dealer wishes Boudreaux good luck and spins the roulette wheel. Around and around the ball goes. Boudreaux anxiously watches the ball as it slowly loses speed until finally it settles into number 21. He hears the voice again, "Damn, Boudreaux. Bad luck. !"
