Beaudreaux's Snake

Boudreaux been fish'n down by de bayou all day and he done run
outa night crawlers. He be bout reddy to leave when he seen a snake wif a
big frog in his mouf. He knowed dat dem big bass fish like dem frogs,
so he decided to steal dat froggie.

Dat snake, he be a cotton mouf water moccasin, so he had to be
Real careful or he'd git bit. He snuk up behin' dat snake and
grabbed him roun de haid. Dat ole snake din't lak dat one bit. He squirmed and Wrap hisself roun' Boudreaux's arm try'n to git hisself free. But
Boudreaux, he had a real good grip on his haid, yeh.

Well, Boudreaux pried his mouf open and got de frog and puts
it in his bait can. Now, Boudreaux knows dat he cain't let go dat snake
or he's gonna bite him good, but he had a plan. He reach into de back
pocket of his bibs and pulls out a pint a moonshine likker. He pour some
drops into de snake's mouf. Well, dat snake's eyeballs kinda roll back in
his haid and his body go limp. Wit dat, Boudreaux toss dat snake into
de bayou. Den he goes back to fishin'.

A while later Boudreaux dun feel sumpin' tappin' on his
Barefoot toe.

He slowly look down and dare wuz dat water moccasin . . . wif
two more frogs........

Thanks Richard & Margaret W.
