Here in South Louisiana we have had our share of You Tube favorites. There is Poo Poo Broussard, Cajun OnStar and Cooyon Duhon just to name a few. Now we can add another name to the list. Cajun Smurf, he’s little he’s blue and he sounds like me and you! Here are some of my favorite Cajun Smurf moments.

Finals can be a time of the semester that seems like it will never end! Probably the hardest week of a college student’s semester. It sure is good to have people who understand that stress, and they put on many events to keep college students going!




You don’t have to be a fan of “The X Files” to be fascinated by this story. Anyone who has ever visited or read about Area 51 near Roswell, NM should be interested in this….The Truth Is Out There……

Jude was watching Swamp People on Sunday night and he heard Troy Landry utter the word “boudé” and it made me chuckle.He started thinking about all the Cajun words and phrases that he hears that are funny to hear. We asked you and here are the 5 that he got the most. Hope you enjoy them mes amis!




On a night that his mother described as “dreaming while you’re awake” Acadiana’s own Jacee Badeaux took to the stage at the New Orleans Arena to sing with his personal musical idols Rascal Flatts. We apologize for the video being “a little bright” but the spotlights created quite a glare. Regardless, the audio is wonderful and the moment even more magical.




Beloved entertainer, comedian, and MDA advocate Jerry Lewis has seen his last day as Chairman of the Board for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. He also will not appear at the 2011 Telethon on Sept 4th.




Hank Williams, Jr. no longer has the theme song to Monday Night Football due to some comments regarding Obama. Most people thought this is where the fun would end. Not so much. Hank just released a new song in response to the whole situation. It’s called “Keep the Change”.

In case you missed it on the 2011 CMA Awards broadcast, and by popular demand, here’s the commercial that has everyone talking. It was so nice of Ms. Reba to take some time out of her busy schedule to do this for us!
