This falls under the category of you just can't make this stuff up...

When I think of Mamou, Louisiana, I think of old school Mardi Gras where courirs and capitaines put on their costumes and masks and caravan through town 'begging' for ingredients for their Mardi Gras repast of gumbo, chanting and dancing to le chanson de Mardi Gras. I've always wanted to ride my horse for Mardi Gras in Mamou and chase chickens for the community pot. In fact, a lot of people in Louisiana consider this the real 'Cajun' way to celebrate Fat Tuesday, not with floats and parades.

So, when this story about Mamou popped up on my screen this morning, I was shocked. First, who's ever heard of a trailer park for swingers? Second, in Mamou?!?? Isn't Mamou a sleepy little town? Turns out, they like to do more than sleep at night.

According to, David Aucoin is set to open Tee-Boi's Swinger Trailer Park and Camp Ground Memorial Day weekend next year. Their motto is 'Bring your house and share your spouse.' Say what? Aucoin says 'sharing is caring' and that the swinger community is bigger than you realize. If you're wondering what swinging is, it's wife swapping.

The community is getting lots of attention from around the country, although many are just curious to see if it's real. If you took a close look at the sign above, it says, 'Please include a picture of your spouse for approval.' Aucoin says that's a joke, but plenty of people are sending photos regardless. Imagine that!

On a side note, I'm thinking this is a fantastic way for a mobile home dealership to boost its sales! Just a thought!
