A Cajun named Thibideaux went to his doctor to determine the source of his
malady. The doctor, after a lengthy examination, sighed and looked
Thibideaux in the eye and said, "I've some bad news for you.

"You have cancer, and it's very bad. You'd best put your affairs in

Thibideaux was shocked and saddened. But, being of solid character, he
managed to compose himself and walk from the doctor's office into the
waiting room.

To his son Boudreaux who had been waiting, Thibideaux said, "Well son, us
Cajuns celebrate when t'angs is good, and we celebrate when dey don't be so
good. In Cajun Logicdis case, dey ain't so good.

"I got cancer.

"Let's head to da honky tonk and have us a few dranks."

After 3 or 4 beers, the two were feeling a little less sad. There were
some laughs and more whiskey. They were eventually approached by some of
Thibideaux's old friends who asked what the two were celebrating.

Thibideaux told them that Cajuns celebrate the good and the bad. He went on
to tell them that they were drinking to his impending end.

Then he told his friends, "Da doctor dun tol' me I'm dyin' from AIDS."

His son's eyebrows raised and he opened his mouth, but Thibideaux raised
his finger and the frown on his face told his son to hold his tongue.

The friends gave Thibideaux their condolences, and they had a couple
more beers. After his friends left, Boudreaux's son leaned over and
whispered, "Papa, I t'ought you said dat you was dyin' from cancer! You
jus' tol' your friends dat you dyin' from AIDS!!!!"

Thibideaux looked at him wisely and said, "I don' want none o' dem
sleepin' wit' yo mama after I'm gone."
