Thibodeaux saw his old friend Boudreaux, an eighty-year old Cajun farmer, in town. Boudreaux had lost his wife a year or so before and rumour had it that he was marrying a 'mail order' bride.
Being a good friend, Thibodeaux asked Boudreaux if the rumor was true. Boudreaux assured him that it was. When Thibodeaux asked Boudreaux the age of his new bride to be. Boudreaux proudly said, 'She'll be twenty-one in November.'
Now Thibodeaux being a wise man, was sure the sexual appetite of a young woman could not be satisfied by an eighty-year- old man. Wanting his old friend's remaining years to be happy Thibodeaux tactfully suggested that Boudreaux should consider getting a hired hand to help him out on the ranch, knowing nature would take its own course.
Boudreaux thought this was a good idea and said he would look for one that afternoon.
About four months later, Thibodeaux ran into Boudreaux in town again. 'How's the new wife?', asked Thibodeaux Boudreaux proudly said, 'Good - she's pregnant.' Thibodeaux, happy that his sage advice had worked out, continued, 'And how's the hired hand?'
Without hesitating, Boudreaux said, ' Good - she's pregnant too.'
Don't ever underestimate old Cajuns!
