    CAJUN ('ka:-j@n), n. A person of French Canadian descent born or living along the
    bayous, marshes, and prairies of southern Louisiana. The word Cajun began in 19th
    century Acadie (now Nova Scotia, Canada) when the Acadians began to arrive. The
    French of noble ancestry would say, "les Acadiens", while some referred to the Acadians
    as "le 'Cadiens", dropping the "A". Later came the Americans who could not pronounce
    "Acadien" or "'Cadien", so the word "Cajun" was born.

    why don't you just buy a box or two of the other screws and then use them instead of the supplied screws?
