2) It’s not only possible to be elected governor with only 33% of the vote, it happened as recently as 1987.

3) In the 1920s a Louisiana restaurant came up with an affordable sandwich in an effort to help workers on strike. It was called the po’ boy.

4) In Louisiana, biting someone with your natural teeth is considered simple assault. Biting someone with your false teeth is aggravated assault.
