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”!
