Foie gras means what in Cajun slang?!

A Tuscon reporter, Greg Hanson, answers questions directed to “Dear Mr. Football”
In his piece, published September 9th, he answers a readers question about the Arizona – LSU game.

Dear Mr. Football: Is LSU overconfident?

A. At the Baton Rouge airport Friday, a group of UA fans were waiting for their luggage. A guy in an oversized LSU-purple jersey walked up and said, “You guys are foie gras.”

One of the Arizona fans, wearing a Wildcat T-shirt, asked him to spell it. “F-o-i-e g-r-a-s,” the man replied. The UA fan looked stumped.

“Goose liver,” said the LSU fan. It’s a Cajun word for underdog.

I’ll have to confirm that with my Cajun sources, but for the record the final score was LSU 45 – Arizona 3.

What’s the Cajun word for spanking, I wonder?
