    Talking smooth talking Cajun

    Boudreaux, the smoothest-talking Cajun in the Louisiana National
    Guard, got called up to active duty. Boudreaux's first assignment was
    in a military induction center.

    Because he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising
    new recruits about government benefits, especially the GI insurance to
    which they were entitled.

    The officer in charge soon noticed that Boudreaux was getting a 99%
    sign-up rate for the more expensive supplemental form of GI insurance.

    This was remarkable, because it cost these low-income recruits $30.00
    per month for the higher coverage, compared to what the government was
    already providing at no charge. The officer decided he'd sit in the
    back of the room at the next briefing and observe Boudreaux's sales

    Boudreaux stood up before the latest group of inductees and said, "If
    you has da normal GI insurans an' you goes to Afghanistan an' gets
    youself killed, da governmen' pays you beneficiary $20,000. If you
    takes out da supplemental insurans, which cost you only t'irty dollars
    a mons, den da governmen' gots ta pay you beneficiary $200,000!

    "Now," Boudreaux concluded, "which bunch you tink dey gonna send ta
    Afghanistan first?
