Bonjour my Cajun friends, it’s me again, opinionated columnist and general know it all Mrs. Nettie Mae Avec Domino.

Well I got deux letters to discuss with y’all. Da first letter say this.

Dear Nettie Mae,

My son just told me I got a Anti-Virus and dat I should be worried about a cyber attack!

What do I do?

Mon dieu!!! Thank you for contacting me about dat. Lord knows the last thing we need at our age is a cyber attack. My sister got one a few years ago and quite frankly, she never recovered. Now she gets the attacks every time it rains or she has to drive for a long time. Da doctor told her she need a IT man… Huh, I think she needs a man with a job! But who am I to judge. Anyway, da best way that I know to stop dat cyber attack is to get a good poncho and when you on a long drive, stop and walk every once in a while...  

 When I read dis next letter I got so mad I'bout threw it away, but being a professional advice columnist you just can't do dat, so here it is...

 Dear Mrs. Domino,

I need help! I am having trouble with them Gd IsIs boys down the street. They always shooting fire crackers and burning incense. They got big beards and always racing their jihad’s down the street. I just don’t know what to do. I’m afraid they gonna bring my property value down or something! What to do?

Huh!!! Well first of all… I know das you Ella!!! You told me dat same story last week and I already told you to leave them boys alone. One day they gonna grow up and you gonna need them to cut you grass or trim you trees. Now I don’t know nuttin about no burning incense, but I do know they starting to burn the cane, so das probably what you smelling. Now, one last thing before you start a international incident, learn how to spell Grand Isle !!!        

Anyway, dats all I got time for today, but if you got something to tell me or need sum advice? Send you stuff to [email protected] and I’m gonna read it. 

Au revoir y’all,

Mrs. Nettie Mae Avec Domino
