And Lenny Bruce wondered why they called it French…

Well, after innocent postcards which have taken on a whole new meaning–we now have the former French Justice Minister and current European MP Rachida Dati making the comment in a recent Canal+ interview that:

When I see some of them looking for returns of 20 or 25 percent, at a time when fellatio is close to zero, and in particular in a slump, that means we are destroying businesses.

Ms. Dati’s explanation is that she was talking quickly and people are mistaken since the French word for fellatio is ‘fellation’, which sounds similar to the word ‘inflation’.

The video clip above was posted online and has received 120,000 views. Dati wasn’t too concerned about the mix up. “I just spoke too quickly,” she said. “But, well, if that lets everybody have a laugh, then that’s fine.”

Yes, I picked this up from White Rabbit.
