Life after Boudini

I was trying to figure out whatever happened to the Great Boudini (Cajun Magician with a foam rubber alligator who came on between Scooby Doo and Bravestarr on Fox 15 in the afternoons.) What the hell would a sixty year old with poor ventriloquism skills and a slightly discolored alligator do in his spare time? He seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth. For god's sake, some guy at TV10 didn't even know who he was!?! "What's a great boudini?" (He got 50 lashings with a foam gator for that.) I finally found out that his real name is Ken Meaux. And as you would expect, he's doing the obvious follow up to a career in magic, he's now an expert UFOlogist. Also, a leading investigator into Cajun time travel. And, yes, even a Michael Jackson soothsayer:

(From an old Advertiser article or something)
Ken Meaux of Kaplan is a recognizable personality in the Acadiana area. For decades, he has entertained the public as The Great Boudini and is the author of 'Bec Doux,' a compilation of his cartoons that were once a regular feature in The Advertiser. Meaux said he classifies himself as a 'neo-magician.'

“I’m one of the early new magicians that seek to present magic as entertainment, but using the components of reality-bending principals.”

Meaux was recently among a number of local residents featured in a British Broadcasting Company production on the local folk healers known as traiteurs. Meaux also acted as a consultant on the project. Meaux said that when looking into future events, it’s best for the reader to know as little as possible about the subject matter, to avoid having it influenced.

“Subconsciously or consciously, I’m going to base a reading on what you told me. It’s better not to tell me anything about it.”

Meaux makes predictions with one caveat: “Fortelling the future is almost impossible. The future can’t be known, because we can change it.” Still, Meaux has some predictions for the world of entertainment.

“For Michael Jackson, he’ll be found both guilty and innocent. He’s guilty of something, but not this one. He’ll be found innocent by his fans, but guilty by the courts. He won’t serve time. It’ll be probation or house arrest.”

Good job Boudini! You've successfully predicted that MJ is a rich perv. Way to go. You have to love Lafayette celebs. Other towns have their football stars, movie stars, etc. We have time travelling ventriloquist ufologists from the future. Viva Lafayette!

"Hey chile, come sit in Boudini's lap and tell Mr. Alligator hyah where ya daddy keeps his viagra."

My prediction is, MJ will commit suicide if convicted! His career is finished, kaputt! There is no place for him... today, he is finito!

Rich pervs are a dime a dozen. . . MJ has a rep! Destroyed!

Yeah his career is pretty much in the shitter. But it's kind of been that way for a while. He's gotten away with diddling young'uns before though, so I wouldn't be surprised if he gets away with it again.

Poor guy.

Ken Meaux is not the "authur" of Bec Doux et Ses Amis. Earl Comeaux, deceased, has that honor. Also, Ken did not act as a consultant for BBC, he was interviewed both in English and French about faith healers, "traitors" and made a claim that he was one.
