My father, a Creole of New Orleans, often told this joke. A young boy was born to a proud but impoverished Cajun family in Bayou Lafourche. He seemed healthy and happy, but never spoke a word. Finally, at Thanksgiving dinner when he was seven years old, he put down a piece of bread, looked at his family around the table, and announced solemnly: "This bread is burnt." His mother fainted. The family was astonished. A Thanksgiving miracle! "Son," asked his father, "you can speak?!" "Sure, Dad." "Why you don't say nothin' till now?!" The boy looked at his father with a mixture of pity and regret, "Well, Dad, up till now, everything been hokay!"

So, maybe everything is hokay!
