It's back, chere!
In case you don't remember, the "Cajun Thing" is a series of blog posts about words, phrases and traditions that are uniquely Cajun. I haven't been posting them for a while, but I have a notebook full of items I've remembered along with more I encounter when speaking with my parents.
Today's Cajun thing is a COUILLON! [KOO-yawɴ]
Couillon is basically the Cajun word for dummy or idiot. In fact, being called a couillon might actually be worse than being called an idiot.
"Dat Jean Sot is a couillon, yeah!"
