Boudreaux was walking down the street on his way home when he was stopped by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man, who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.
Boudreaux took ten dollars out of his wallet, but before he handed it over he asked, “If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?”
“No, I had to stop drinking years ago,” the homeless man replied.
“Will you spend this on hunting and fishing instead of food?” Boudreaux asked.
“Are you NUTS?” replied the homeless man. “I haven’t fished or hunted in over 20 years!!”
“Well,” said Boudreaux, “I’m not going to give you money. Instead, I’m going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife.”
The homeless man was astounded. “Won’t your wife be furious with you for doing that?”
Boudreaux replied, “That’s okay. It’s important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking, hunting and fishing.”
