Cajun's Be Declarin' War

The Cajuns heard that Saddam Hussein was going to help Osama bin Laden and they decided

This is WAR!!

Saddam Hussein was sitting in his bunker when his telephone rang.

"Hallo! Mr. Hussein," a heavily accented voice said. "This is Boudreaux down at the Fred's Lounge in Mamou, Looziannah. I'm callin' to told you we be officially declarin' war on you!"

"Well, Boudreaux, Saddam replied, "This is indeed important news! How big is your army?"

"Rat now," said Boudreaux, (hesitating) "there is me, my cousin Thibedeaux, my nex door neighbor Justain, and the whole bunch from the bar. That makes us eight!"

Saddam paused. "I must tell you, Boudreaux, that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my command."

"Woo-eee!" said Boudreaux. "I gots to call you back later!"

Sure enough, the next day, Boudreaux called again. "Mr. Hussein, the war is still on! We got us some heavy-duty war equipment!"

"And what equipment would that be, Boudreaux?" Saddam asked.

"Well, we got us two Massey Fergusen combines, a ditch witch, and a International Harvester farm tractor."

Saddam sighed. "I must tell you, Boudreaux, that I have 16,000 tanks and 14,000 armoured personnel carriers. Also, I' ve increased my army to 1-1/2 million since we last spoke."

"Gots Almighty Damn!" said Boudreaux. "I gots to git back to you later."

Sure enough, Boudreaux rang again the next day. "Mr. Hussein, da war still be on! We got ourselves some airborne! We've took Marcell's utra-light glider an we put us a shotgun in the cockpit, and Hebert gots out of jail today and he is gonna join our army too!"

Saddam was silent for a minute and then cleared his throat. "I must tell you, Boudreaux, that I have 10,000 bombers and 20,000 fighter planes. My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to TWO MILLION!"

"Ah-yie-yie!", screams Boudreaux, "I gots ta call you back later."

Sure enough, Boudreaux calls again the next day.

"Bon jour, Sad-damn! I so sorry I gots to toll you we is callin' off dis war."

"I'm sorry to hear that," said Saddam. "Why the sudden change of heart?"

"Well," said Boudreaux, "We all had a long talk at the bar and Sheriff Broussard he say no way he's gonna feed no two million prisoners."
