What comes to mind when you think of Louisiana?

Asked by Aster (14920 points ) January 16th, 2013

I began to be grossed out about the state when, on No Reservations, I found out the people have outdoor parties that consist of dragging a huge turtle out of the road and proceed to do dreadful things to it before cutting it up to make turtle stew while the guys play fiddles while drinking beer. Then they shoot a pig in the head, put it in a tub of boiling water so they can shave off it’s hair more easily before butchering it also. I can’t bare the thought of any of it. Of course, many people don’t do this, I’m sure. They don’t attend these outdoor gatherings.
So what are your fascinating thoughts about the state?

I tend to think of poverty rates and education rankings.

As an aside, what do you think happens to the pigs that wind up as bacon in your local grocery store?

Huey Long—a great socialist and politician, but a bad human being.
