Mr. Baptiste says that he is using his ex-wife's Cessna Two-Seater to do his sky writing.

LAFAYETTE, Louisiana – Up until a few days ago, lifelong Louisiana resident, Jean Boniface Baptiste, was an unemployed shrimp salesman.

But today, he is literally making a killing working as a sky writer.

Baptiste says that he borrowed his ex-wife’s Cessna Two-Seater, and took to the sky with 10 gallons of white skywriting powder.

The former shrimp salesman was awarded a lucrative contract by the city of Lafayette to work eight hours a day up in the sky, skywriting the phrase “Stay Inside – Don’t Risk Getting Shot!”

The Lafayette City Council has voted into law one of the strongest shelter-in-place policies of any state in the nation.

Meanwhile, the Lafayette Police Department wants to get the word out that anyone violating the shelter-in-place proclamation could end up getting shot.

Jean Boniface says that he estimates he writes the skywriting phrase at least 400 times a day.

He revealed tongue-in-cheek that towards the end of his shift, the gets kind of bored, and will slip in a few “Stay Inside – Don’t Risk Getting Your Cajun Ass Shot!” messages.

Baptiste stated that he plans to donate 15% of his earnings to The Louisiana Bayou Home For Retired Shrimp Giggers.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
