Tee Boudreaux and the Outhouse

Early one morning, Tee Boudreaux was walking along the bank of Bayou Que de Tortue behind his house. All of a sudden, he noticed that the family outhouse, located right on the bank, was tilting dangerously toward the bayou; the heavy downpour from the previous night had serious eroded the bank where the outhouse was located.

Being a boy (and a pretty canaille one at that) and reasoning that the outhouse was beyond salvage, Tee Boudreaux picked up a big stick and whacked the outhouse - really peléed it - and watched as the outhouse toppled over, fell into the bayou, and quickly sank under the muddy waters.

A few hours later, Papa Boudreaux came up to him and with anger in his voice asked, "Tee Boudreaux, did you knock that outhouse into the bayou?"

"Papa," the boy answered, "like George Washington, I cannot tell a lie. I did it."

"Mais, Tee Boudreaux, come with me maintenant to the woodshed. You are going to get the whipping of your life!"

Tee Boudreaux was shocked by this turn of events and said, "Papa, when George Washington told his papa that he had chopped down the cherry tree, his papa didn't give him a whipping."

"Mais no, Tee Boudreaux," said his father, "but George Washington's papa wasn't in that cherry tree when he cut it down, either."

My mother grew up in the country and claims her and her friends actually tipped one over with the farmer in it.
