* For some, ComicBook/{{Gambit}} of the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} is nothing more than a collection of various stereotypes about thieves and Cajuns all rolled into one that has only recently been given any major CharacterDevelopment. He was raised by your run-of-the-mill Cajun thieves' guild after being kidnapped at birth, and their leader was advised by a black Catholic [[HollywoodVoodoo voodoo priestess]] type! He has a Cajun accent so hardcore that even the writers of the ''X-Men'' books can't help parodying it now and then! Every time Gambit has a few issues in New Orleans, he ''will'' have scenes in the swamps, the French Quarter or both, and some mention of gumbo or jambalaya ''will'' be made, I gerr-on-tee it.

* One of the {{Mooks}} in Wrestling/JohnCena's debut movie ''film/TheMarine'' is from the Louisiana bayous, so he's more at home in the swamps of South Carolina (where the bad guys have fled with a kidnapped hostage in tow) than the rest of the gang. John Triton still manages to kill him with little trouble, though.

This character is [[strike:guaranteed]] gerr-on-''teed'' to have a thick accent (usually a mixture of [[UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents "Southern"]] and French, although this is not quite how actual Cajuns sound). A common expression is "Where y'at?" ("Where are you?"), which also lends its name to the native dialect of New Orleans, "Yat", characterized among other peculiarities by the vowel sounds "ur" and "oy" being swapped (yes, just like in the Brooklynese New York dialect).

Note that Cajun does not mean from UsefulNotes/NewOrleans. (In fact, New Orleans is specifically NOT Cajun, as the culture exists in the Acadiana region, which centers around Lafayette.) {{The Big Easy}}'s specific ethnic group is known as Creole. The word itself is a corruption of "Acadian", the term for the French-speakers of [[UsefulNotes/{{Canada}} eastern Quebec and the Maritime Provinces, particularly New Brunswick]]. That's right--the Cajuns are originally from Canada. They trekked down to Louisiana by several routes after the UsefulNotes/FrenchAndIndianWar resulted in the transfer of Canada to British rule. As a result, the Cajuns have a Southern U.S. culture with French-Canadian roots, and are an ethnic group mainly living in southwestern Louisiana (but many creators [[TheyJustDidntCare can't tell the difference]]). See TheOtherWiki [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cajun for further details]]. (Hint: New Orleans is more metropolitan/city, and Cajun is more pastoral/country.)

Of course, characters don't have to be Cajun - or even French - to qualify. All they have to do is be from Louisiana - or somewhere near Louisiana - and fit the stereotype. (And they can be from any part of the Gulf Coast, which stretches from southeastern Texas to Florida; actually, many parts of the South have hot, humid climates similar to Louisiana's.)
