Years ago, when Boudreaux was a college freshman, being fresh off the farm, and a rather healthy young man, he figured he’d try out for the football team.
“Can you tackle?” asked the coach.
“Watch dis,” Boudreaux told him, and proceeded to run smack into a telephone pole, shattering it to splinters.
“Wow,” said the coach. “I’m impressed. Can you run?”
“Mais, sure I can run,” said Boudreaux. He was off like a shot, and, in just over nine seconds, he had run a hundred yard dash.
“Great!” exclamed the excited coach. “But can you pass a football?”
Boudreaux rolled his eyes, hesitated for a few seconds. “Mais, Coach,” he said, “if I can swallow it, I can probably pass it.”
