Boudreaux and Thibodeaux are walking down a street while in Jackson, Mississippi, and they see a sign on a store that reads, 'Suits $5.00 each, shirts $2.00 each, trousers $2.50 per pair.'
Boudreaux says to his pal, Thibodeaux," Look here! We could buy a whole gob of these, take 'em back to Lafayette , sell 'em to our friends, and make a fortune. Now when we go in there you be quiet okay?
Just let me do the talkin' 'cause if they hear your accent, they might think we're ignorant, and not wanna sell that stuff to us. Now, I'll talk in a slow Mississippi drawl so's they don't know.'
They go in and Boudreaux says with his best fake Mississippi drawl, 'I'll take 50 of them suits at $5.00 each, 100 of them there shirts at $2.00 each, and 50 pairs of them there trousers at $2.50 each.
I'll back up my pickup and ....'
The owner of the shop interrupts, 'Ya'll are from Louisiana, ain't you?'
'Well...yeah,' says a surprised Boudreaux....'How come you know dat?! '
'Because this is a dry-cleaners.'
