I dont know if the creator of this was joking but this is so stereotypical...very wrong and just not funny. You are obviously not even from Louisiana.

Did you ever stop to think that there might have been a reason why no one else replied?

...this person did a Cnet search on "really lame Cajun jokes."

The "why" is probably more interesting than the "how."

Among strange google things

I had someone call me yesterday to see if I still had a 1998 Lumina for sale. The page isn't even on a site with any links to the page. I'd used it for a newspaper ad YEARS ago. Soon as I disappointed him with the news it sold several years ago I went and changed the page name so Google link wouldn't work for it anymore. If you put in "1998 Lumina for sale" it comes up as 5th choice down!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
