Cajun Joke | Boudreaux & Thibodaux Train to Be Detectives


A policeman was interrogating Boudreaux, Thibodaux and Melancon who were training to become detectives.  To test their skills in recognizing a suspect, the policeman showed Thibodaux a picture for 5 seconds and then hid it.  “This is your suspect. How would you recognize him?” asked the policeman.

“Mais, das so easy,” answered Thibodaux.  “We gon ketch him fas, fas, cuz he got one eye, him.”

“Well, that’s because the picture shows his profile!” said the policeman.  Flustered by this ridiculous response, he flashed the picture for 5 seconds at Melancon and asked, “This is your suspect.  How would you recognize him?”

“Chooooo, dat’d be as easy as eatin’ a piece o’ boudin cuz him dere, he only got one ear,” responded Melancon.

“What’s the matter with you two?” asked the policeman angrily.  ” Of course only one eye and one ear are showing because it’s a picture of his profile! Is that the best you can come up with?”  Extremely frustrated at this point, he showed the picture to Boudreaux and in a very testy voice asked, “This is your suspect.  How would you recognize him?”  He quickly added “And think hard before giving me a stupid answer!”

Boudreaux looked at the picture intently for a moment and said, “Ahd reganize him cuz he got on some contract lanses, him.”

The policeman is surprised because he really doesn’t know himself if the suspect wears contact lenses. “Well, that’s an interesting answer,” commented the policeman.  “Wait here for a few minutes while I check his file and I’ll get back to you on that.”  He left the room and went to his office, checked the suspect’s file in the computer, and returned with a beaming smile on his face.

“Wow, I can’t believe it!” exclaimed the policeman.  “It’s true!  The suspect does in fact wear contact lenses.  Good work!  But how were you able to make such an astute observation?”

“Maaaaais, dat ain’t no rocket science, non,” explained Boudreaux.  “He sho can’t ware no regla glasses, him, cuz he only got one eye and one ear!”
