Scott, La. Named Boudin Capital of the World 

"If you like hot, you'll get hot. If you want mild, you'll find mild. We have boudin balls as big as a softball. We have smoked boudin. I don't even know if anybody did it before we did it."

— Purvis J. Morrison, mayor of Scott, La., which was recently named Boudin Capital of the World by the Louisiana Legislature. Not everyone agrees with this designation, however, and Morrison was quoted in a recent Wall Street Journal story examining competing "world capital" claims from the nearby Acadiana towns of Broussard and Jennings, both of which trace deep boudin roots.
