Shepherd's Pie doesn't usually come Assembly Required but, if that's what you want to call it, okay, but I have some different names.
How poor can you be not to throw away potato water?....
Where's the beef? Booby trapped by a flood tunnel. That's what I say!....

Ketchup

Postby Tank04 on Mon Apr 09, 2007 1:01 pm

From my experience, a Lunenburger's favorite food is mashed potatos, ground beef drowned in the potato water, and corn niblets--all mixed up by the hearty ones into a fine mash after served, and washed down with water of course....
I'm not joking. I used to eat this stuff and my family still eats it. I'm not finicky at all, but I'd much rather have a "Newfie" steak....


Mmmmmm. Sounds some good you! I like it with ketchup mixed in with it. And Newfie Steak, especially good baked, with a brown sugar glaze. :lol:

That's why a Lunenburger could tell me the nuttiest story....you could tell me the Excaliber rises in Mahone Bay every full moon and Jack Dawson rises at the bow of the sunken Titanic, picks it up and says "I'm the James Cameron of the wooorld!" and I'd believe it....

The Cajuns I only believe because you have the same story. They obviously changed Captain Kidd to Jean Lafitte to make it French. Lafitte however according to Wikipedia, was only a pirate for a short time and only after he was kicked out of Lousiana in 1817....

ML,

However WIKI is not your most reliable source for too much. I refer to it from time to time and only as a starting pont and possibly to get other leads but absolutely not as an end all do all by no means amigo! :shock: :P

Alrighty then! You are correct, BI. Crimelibrary, for one and which I find very reliable, says something different: Lafitte was a pirate by the year 1808 when he was setting up his base on Grande Island at the mouth of the Mississippi....At least I can say he probably didn't bury a treasure on Oak Island....
Interestingly I found another story of a Lafitte treasure sinking in the swamps of Florida at news.nationalgeographic.com. There was even speculation by the treasure hunter that previous drilling ruptured the treasure chests sending the booty down into the ooze....
badinfluence63 wrote:However, its just such that plagues the minds of some regarding the Oak Island mystery. Just this very same argument. While some, like me, agree with you (it makes to much sense and begs to be applicable) there are still others who say...bullsh*t!.

If there was another major identifiable influx of refugees or immigrants to the same area at about the same time and they had no sinking treasure legends, then I'd say with 100% certainty that the Cajun stories came from their own experience in Acadia.

P.S. Treasure Planet was the animated story I remember having a sinking treasure. The planet was booby trapped and the treasure started to sink and take the characters down with it....

ML,

When I think of Lafitte I think of New Orleans and its history pirates.
