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!

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 believeze English pronounce zat word, 'appiness!'
