Laniappe pronounced "Lan-yap" means a little something extra. It's like a token of appreciation, such as a baker's dozen. You buy a dozen rolls and the baker throws in an extra one...a little something extra! So here is some lagniappe for you all.
Boudreaux and Thibodeaux
Who doesn't love a good joke? One factor that almost all Cajun jokes have in common is that one of the characters (usually the one that is wild, or perhaps not as bright) is named Boudreaux or Thibodeaux and they are central characters in South Louisiana humor. If you ever hear a joke being told that deals with a Boudreaux or a Thibodeaux, odds are that you are hearing one of the good Cajun jokes.
Boudreaux was lying on his death bed. The doctor had already told him that he surely wouldn't live for another week. Suddenly, and much to Boudreaux's glee, a wonderful aroma hit Boudreaux like a tidal wave. He knew that the smell meant only one thing- his wife had just made a pot of gumbo. Boudreaux wanted a bowl so badly, but he was no longer able to walk, so he crawled out of his bed and into the kitchen. Just as Boudreaux was reaching for the pot, his wife barked out, "Boudreaux! Shame on you! You know that gumbo is going to be for your funeral."
Boudreaux and Thibodeaux decided to go fishing one morning at the pond in back of Boudreaux's house. It was dark and when they reached the pond they realized they wanted to cross to the other side. But they couldn't walk around and had no boat or pirogue to cross in. Thibodeaux turned to Boudreaux and said, "Mais Boudreaux, how da heck we gonna get crossed." Boudreaux said, "No problem, I'm gonna shine dis here flashlight cross de water an you gonna walk on de beam of light all de way cross." Thibodeaux then says, "Mais, Boudreaux, you must tink I'm stupid or somethin, cause just when I get halfway cross you gonna turn off de light."
