Chris Champaign - THE YAT DICTIONARY
Poet, Political Satirist, Playwright, Comic - and now add Lexicographer to the list - Chris Champagne comes to sign his new, unabridged, and unexpurgated THE YAT DICTIONARY.
James Nolan says of Chris Champagne: "What Dylan Thomas did for Welsh, Chris Champagne does for YAT." And now, for the first time, what Chris has done for Yat is compiled into a complete reference for tourists and New Orleanians alike. As noted scholar and linguist Dr. Nancy Dixon says, “If you ain’t got this book, how you gonna talk right, Dawlin?”
"If scholars in a hundred years want to study the foibles of New Orleans, they will turn to Chris Champagne, but then again scholars usually ain’t that smart."
"A chronicler of our town and our times, Chris Champagne is the boiled crab of comedy."
From The Yat Dictionary:
Aag - Egg. “Ma favorite breakfast is bacon and aags.” Also slang for a goofball. “That guy ova dere is a real aag.”
Acrosst - Across. As in crossword puzzle instruction. “Fo-teen acrosst: a seven letter word for across.”
