Boudreaux done had him a dog, Phideaux, dat like to lay 'round, too.  At de shop, Boudreaux had him a sign dat say, "Beware de dog!"

One day a new customer come in de shop an' see de sign, an' he say, "Where be de dog I gots to beware of?"

An' Boudreaux say, "He be over dere."

Seein' Phideaux layin' dere jes' as quiet an' not movin' at all, de new customer say, "Well, it sure seem no one gots to beware him!"

An' Boudreaux say, "Mais, let me done tol' you!  Befo' I had me the sign, you should see how many people hurt deyse'f when dey trip over him!"
