Not a joke, but I didn't know where else to post.
This is a decal from my Cub. A friend from Lou zeanna stuck it on there a few years ago. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v642/Hinkle1/Planes/Untitled-1.jpg

I guess I'm an Honorary Coonass? I was told that the English interpretation of the foreign language is "We do it in style." Is that correct? :D

Are you sure Joe didnt put that on there?

TJ - if you are referring to the French on the sticker - "Les le bon ton roulette" - it means "Let the good times roll".

The "ton" should probably be spelled "temps" means "time" but perhaps "ton" is a colloquial spelling in Lousiana? Cajun Joe - comments?

If a 'buddy' slapped a sticker - no matter how clever - on my planes beooteefull oxidized paint, I'd probably come unglued.

You must be a very tolerant individual.

Do you have to prospect (initiate) to be an honorary coonass? Tj did you have to do wild things for membership? I got a feeling tj would fit right in.The rest of you may plan trips to alaska to see the glaciers,denali,the polar bears.If i ever go,i am going to meet up with all the characters up there.Imagine all the tricks one could learn hanging around with tj for a week or so.

Do you have to prospect for awhile to be a coonass?

Oh, I think there's probably lots of prospects out there...

I'm definately going to get a look at TJ if I get to Alaska, but you are at the top of my Maine list. I am always entertained with both of your posts.

Well zinck, there was an initation of sorts. It had to do with boiled moose tongue and gin mixed with something, I forget what. As I remember there was a minor thing about a moose oosick also, thank God I forget the details.
I passed! :o

Although "Les le bon ton roulette" is an assemblage of french words, i.e. "The (plural form), the (singular form), good, yours - or tone (ton has several meanings), small wheel", it doesn't mean much in French. Maybe in Cajun, wouldn't know...

However, the coon is expressive!

Thanks Cajun!

I can see that, like our English speaking neighbours, we are divided by a common language...

Hey Joe, your dog Phideaux got loose again!

We didn't recognize him at first without his collar.

Later, I sweet talked Phideaux into posing for me while Lee tried to collar him from behind. Our dang cat ruined the attempt by getting too close if you know what I mean.

We got a good shot and didn't like that cat anyway. If Phideaux is a good ratter (can't spell nutria-r), can we keep him?
