Boudreaux, the smoothest-talking Cajun in the Louisiana National
Guard, got called up to active duty one day. Boudreaux's first
assignment was to a military induction center, and because he was a
good talker they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits
about government benefits, especially the GI insurance to which they
were entitled.

Before long, the Captain in charge of the induction center began
noticing that Boudreaux was getting a 99% sign-up rate for the more
expensive supplemental form of GI insurance. This was odd, because
it would cost these low-income recruits $30.00 per month more for
the higher coverage, compared to what the government was already
providing at no charge.
The Captain decided that he would not ask Boudreaux directly about
his selling techniques, but instead he would sit in the back of the
room at the next briefing and observe Boudreaux's sales pitch.

Boudreaux stood up before the latest group of inductees and
said, "If you got da normal GI insurans an' you go to Iraq an' get
youself killed, da governmen' gonna pay you beneficiary $20,000. If
you take out da supplemental insurans, which cost you only t'irty
dollar a mont, den da governmen' gotta pay you beneficiary

  "NOW," Boudreaux concluded, "which bunch you tink dey gonna send ta
Iraq furst?"
