    When Charles deGaulle decided to retire from public life,
    the British ambassador and his wife threw a gala dinner
    party in his honor. At the dinner table, the Ambassador's
    wife was talking with Madame deGaulle: "Your husband has
    been such a prominent public figure, such a presence on
    the French and international scene for so many years! How
    quiet retirement will seem in comparison. What are you
    most looking forward to in these retirement years?"

    "A penis," replied Madame deGaulle.

    A huge hush fell over the table. Everyone heard her
    answer... and no one knew what to say next.

    Le Grand Charles leaned over to his wife and said, "Ma
    cherie, I believe ze English pronounce zat word, 'appiness!'"
