Why Tee Boudreaux Went to Detention

One day, Tee Boudreaux, de smart one in la famille, came home from school totally bent out of shape and late, yes!  Tee Boudreaux was so totally amazed and so nonplussed, that he could not answer his Mama when she axed him how come he late.

So she got Oncle Robichaux to find out.  Oncle Robichaux was all tact and discretion, unlike the other Boudreauxes.

Oncle Robichaux goes, "Eh bien, Tee Boudreaux, how it goin'?"

Tee Boudreaux replies, "I done lost de spelling bee, Oncle Robichaux!"

"Eh bien, mon petit.  But you were always the best speller in Terrebonne Parish.  But you know:  Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.  And Good Time Boudreaux got the blues."

Tee Boudreaux smiled a little, and added, "Actually, I also got sent to detention."

"Eh, podner, I savvy.  No penalty.  What did you do?"

"Ah, Oncle Robichaux, I misspelled a word.  ONE FRIGGIN' WORD!"

"Gosh, dat is trés harsh.  Dat teacher is one mean woman.  And what word was that?"

"De teacher axed me to spell 'auspices, and I musta spelt it wrong.'"

i don't think i get it. :(

(re: your comment on my post today - i wasn't referring to your blog. you are a writing blog - i expect saucy commentary, opinions, etc. here. i was referring to others who have a photography or crafting or rural blog who suddenly start cramming political or religious content onto their blog - it is like an assault on my sensibilities - whether i agree w/ them or not). :)

Oh me! I did the Cajun pronunciation of that equine elimination function poorly.

Thanks for the reassurance about my post!

Had to think about it, but horses can have overactive bladders too.

'equine elimination'

Now I get it.

It took me a bit to get it, but the teacher could have given the boy as pass on this.

I sort of thought that was where you were going with the joke, but it's been a long time since I lived in Louisiana and my memory of Cajun dialect leaves a bit to be desired.
