Years ago I was up in Canada, drinking with some RMC cadets, and I
heard someone talking a *lot* like someone from home. I asked where
he was from, he was Acadian, I told him I'm from Acadiana, we
declared each other to be long-lost cousins, wallowed in the
thickest accents we could manufacture, and had a grand ole time.
There is some differences, but we quickly tuned into each other's
and had fun annoying the rest of 'em.
The last part I'm sure y'all have a hard time believing.
