Creoles are pretty much mutts. Random fact that not many know, there is actually a creole language. Some bastardization of the above associated languages I guess.

They're also some of the smartest, most loyal, wildest, and ingenious people I've met. Too bad I can't understand a single damn thing most of them are saying. Even when they're speaking "English".
Why do you think I use french? Its from growing up around a family of Louisiana Creoles
