CAJUN ACCORDION DISCUSSION GROUP
Interesting little article about other kinds of tricks that the "joueurs de niches" could sometimes play on people at dances.
It's # 10 ("Joueurs de niches")
Another interesting one is # 12.
And it gives me the words I wanted to know. Dowell, you had given us the right word : "BALEINE" is the buggy whip. The other one is "LAP ROBE".
baleine is normally a whale, so many something made of whalebone?
but what does "il a fige aux coups" mean?
figer means to freeze up, right?
ps: do you have more stories like this? maybe audio?
