I always think its hilarious how people not from here look at Cajun culture. They either love it and are totally respectful, or they completely screw up the accent and pronunciation of names! Just try and get someone from New York to pronounce boudin or Schexnayder.... Either way, our friends at the Tennessean in Nashville wrote a very nice article about the 22 parishes here in Louisiana that are are considered "Cajun"-so check it out ya'll! Feel free to share with your non south Louisiana friends and relatives!
