Crazy Cajun

 A Cajun man from Louisiana  walked into a bank in New York City
and  asked for the loan officer.

        He told the  loan officer that he was going to London on
business for two weeks and needed to borrow  $5,000 and that he was not
a depositor of the  bank.

        The bank  officer told him that the bank would need  some form
of security for the loan, so the  Louisiana man handed over the keys to
a new  Ferrari.

        The car was parked on the street  in front of the bank. The man
produced the title  and everything checked out. The loan officer  agreed
to hold the car as collateral for the  loan and apologized for having to
charge 12%  interest.

        Later, the bank's president and  its officers all enjoyed a good
laugh at  the Cajun from the south for using a  $250,000 Ferrari as
collateral for a $5,000  loan.

        An employee of the bank then drove  the Ferrari into the bank's
underground garage  and parked it.

        Two weeks later, the  Louisiana man returned, repaid the $5,000
and  the interest of $23.07.

        The loan officer  said, 'Sir, we are very happy to have had your
business, and this transaction has worked out  very nicely, but we are a
little puzzled. While  you were away, we checked you out and found that
you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is,  why would you bother to
borrow  $5,000?'

        The Louisiana man replied,  'Where else in New York City can I
park my car  for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to  be there
when I return?'

        Don't ever  underestimate a  Cajun!
