Incurable (Silly Sunday)

Silly Sunday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs.  The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process.

Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

The more often i drive from our area to NOLA to visit Grandma and Grandpa, the more i realize that ignorance can be educated, crazy can be medicated, but stupid is forever and the only thing the medical community can do about it is sedate it.  Some of the driving moves i see on our highways would turn my hair gray if my children hadn't already done that.

Boudreaux be done foun' by de side de road hurt, an' dey call de am'blance to come take him to de emergency room.

When he get dere, Officer Thibodeaux want to talk to him, an' ax, "How you get hurt, Boudreaux?"

An' Boudreaux say, "Well, I done park my truck by de side de road an' was gettin' out to go huntin' possum fo' dinner, an' dese two men done jump me an' beat me up an' stole de truck!"

An' Officer Thibodeaux ax, "Did you gets a good look at dem to tell me what dey look like?"

An' Boudreaux say, "Mais, no, dey jump me from behin', but I done got de license number o' de truck dey is in!"
