    Young Boudreaux applied for an engineering job way, way up north in Shreveport. A local man applied for the same job and both applicants, having the same qualifications, were asked to take a test by the department manager.

    Upon completion of the test, both men missed only one question. The manager went up to Boudreaux and said "Thank you for your interest, but we've decided to give the local man the job." Boudreaux said "Why you gonna be doin dat sir, we both got 9 questions right?"

    The manager said, "We made our decision not on the correct answers, but on the one you missed."

    Boudreaux asked "An jus how da heck would one incorrect answer be mo betta dan da otter?"

    The manager replied, "Simple, the local man put down on question #5, 'I don't know,' you put down, 'neither do I.'
