He? Isn't that a little before your time too? Quiz: I remember talk about this guy although he died long before I was born. Mama used to talk about how the Kingfish saw to it that the children of Louisiana had textbooks. Name?
Did you ever consider that I might have Acadien ties too? Or that I know as much as you do about Louisiana? Not all Acadiens agree, Martin.

Query 1. Who shot Huey P. Long?
2. What saint did he thank for his Election in the Times-Picayune?
3. where is the bridge that bears his name? Parish Please.
4. Where did Evangeline end up and who inspired the story?
5. Name Louisiana's most southern Post Office?
6. Who is my sunshine?
7. Can a French Language Document be filed in the Courthouse?
8. What is a Police Jury?
9. Who is Dudley LeBlanc and what did he sell?
10. Where is the Shrimp and Petroleum Festival Held at?
No fair looking it up in GOOGLE, these are honest to god Louisiana boy-girl questions any Acadien knows.
Anyone with any sense knows that the Rice Festival is the one that matters. Maine has a shrimp festival in Rockport in August.
The Petroleum Club is in Houston. There is one in Tulsa. Any good coon *** knows the difference between the heel and the toe. Moderator - do not censor coon *** - it has a special meaning in Louisiana.
Speaking to heels seems to be your style but I digress. Rice Festival is in Crowley! Frog Festival is in Rayne and Shrimp and Petroleum festival is in Morgan City.
1. Who shot Heuy Long-Carl Weiss is credited with the deed but he was not the Gov any more, just elected US Senator!
2. What saint did he thank for his election success-Why ST. BERNARD for favors rendered! (St. Bernard Parish Political Machine delivered the Parish, hard to get the poor folks to vote against ole huey, he was loved.)
3.Jefferson Parish, The Huey Long Bridge was built in 1935 as a railroad bridge and car lanes attached to the side, they are just getting a widening job this year, STRONG OLD BRIDGE!
4. Evangeline was inspirted by the story of Emma LeBouef who came from the Bay de Minas (Modern Truro, NS) and searched for her fiance, Gerald LeBlanc whom she met under the Evangeline Oak in St. Martinville, LA after her and Gerald had met and married others! A memorial park surrounds the Oak called Vermillionville and pays tribute to the Acadiens.
5. Pilottown, LA at the mouth of the Mississippi River.
6. Why Gov. Jimmie Davis, a country singer who sang, You are my Sunshine, My Only Sunshine. 1959 to 1963. Died in 2003 at 103 yrs.
7. French is a legal language in Louisiana, we are more like New Brunswick!
8. People elected from districts to head up Parish Government, each being in charge of the local government in their area, that is, they literally fill the potholes! Replace in most Parishes by councimatice type government with Public works under one person.
9. Why Dudley's HADOCOL SYRUP (ERABLE DE HADOCOL) was touted all over Louisiana by Caravan's of trucks who claimed it could cure anything. 70% percent alcohol made it popular! US Govt put an end to it, but it was c'est bon!
10. Probably couldn't find a festival much less a dance partner!
So you think you know as much about Louisiana as I do, well, Couyon, I live in an area where politics is a sport, English is only spoken to appease l'americains and Canadian TV is played on the Cable System to give us French Programming. My kids learned French at home (PA-PA et MAW-MAW, qui immersion en francais!)
Are we ready to hoist the Maple Leaf, well one daughter is dating a boy from Dieppe, NB and the other wants to live in Quebec! Why, to preserve what is left of our culture!
Don't diss the Canadians or Louisiana, both will probably survive.
I am giving tours of the local Aligator Farm, care to join me!
The word Coon *** comes from the word conase which means a dull or simple person. Came back to Louisiana during the Second WW, in some quarters not to be used unless you are on FRIENDLY terms. I prefer Acadian, Acadien or Cajun, not the rude Cou Rouge "Coon ***" which usually used by the Anglais.
