At the dinner table, the Ambassador's wife who did not speak French was talking with Madame de Gaulle:
"Your husband has been such a prominent public figure, on the French and international scene for so many years! What are you both looking forward to in your retirement years?"
"A penis," replied Madame de Gaulle.
A huge hush fell over the table as heard her answer......
Le Grand Charles leaned over to his wife and said:
"Ma cherie, I believe ze English pronounce zat word, "appiness!'"
