A social worker from New Orleans was doing a survey of conditions among the Cajuns of the Bayou country. She arrived at one shack where she saw a woman feeding a baby. The meal consisted of rabbit meat drippings and homemade hard bread.The social worker said, "That's not proper food for a baby! Breast feeding is the best way to feed your child!" The mother pointed to a huge burly, bearded man cleaning fish at a table under the trees. The muscles in his arms strained the shirt he was wearing, and his shoulders were at least a yard wide. "That there's m'oldest boy," she said. "He never had a tit in his mouth 'til he got hitched!"
