    It should also be embarassing that she doesn't know the name of the prime minister of Canada, since she can see Canada from her house.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    ^^ No that was Rick Mercer from "This Hour Has 22 Minutes". The show was called "Talking to Americans" and was quite hilarious

    FNS: Yes, in French, it's called Du rouge à lèvres sur une cochonne or if you prefer in English Joe the Plumber, [sings] It's his life, Joe the Plumber..."
    That's from the Vanessa Paradis song. "Joe le Taxi, c'est sa vie, Joe le taxi" and he also sings it using the same beat as the song.

    Hmmm... I'm not sure if This Hour Has 22 Minutes still plays. I think it might. I do see Talking to Americans once in a while. I get a laugh every time.

    Montreal comedian pranks Sarah Palin

    Last Updated: Saturday, November 1, 2008 | 8:06 PM ET Comments184Recommend549

    CBC News



    Vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, seen here at a rally in October, thought she had received a phone call from French President Nicolas Sarkozy. (Tony Dejak/Associated Press)

    A Montreal comedian spoke to U.S. Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Saturday by impersonating French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

    Marc-Antoine Audette, who called from radio station CKOI, chatted to Palin about hunting, relationships, family and politics before revealing it was a prank call, according to a transcript published by the Canadian Press.

    Palin officials issued a statement Saturday, saying she was "mildly amused to learn that she had joined the ranks of heads of state, including President Sarkozy, and other celebrities in being targeted by these pranksters."

    Audette, who is part of the comedy duo known as the Masked Avengers, got through to Palin's campaign after days of trying, and once she's on the line, eggs her on: "You see, I [Sarkozy] got elected in France because I'm real and you seem to be someone who's real, as well."

    Palin replies, "Yes, yeah. Nico, we so appreciate this opportunity."
    As Sarkozy, Audette tells Palin, the governor of Alaska and a moose hunter, that he loves hunting and they should go together.
    She responds that "I think we could have a lot of fun together while we're getting work done. We can kill two birds with one stone that way."

    Audette speaks French at several points, which Palin doesn't understand, and uses fake names for Canadian politicians, which she doesn't catch.

    He identified the Canadian prime minister as "Stef Carse" (a singer) and said that the prime minister of Quebec, "Mr. Richard Z. Sirois," (a Quebec radio host) is a good friend.

    He also made a comment about how good Sarkozy's wife, supermodel Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, was in bed, and asked Palin whether she knew about the pornographic spoof video called Nailin' Paylin.

    "Ohh, good, thank you, yes," she replies, according to the transcript..
    The conversation lasted six minutes before Audette told Palin she had been the victim of a spoof.

    He told the Canadian Press the interview was the Masked Avenger's biggest triumph, in a list that includes Stones singer Mick Jagger, pop star Britney Spears, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Sarkozy — by impersonating Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

    The Avengers — Audette and Sebastien Trudel — have a regular show on CKOI, and plan to air the interview before the the U.S. election on Nov. 4.

    If I were on the phone with someone I believed to be an important figure (and she had no reason not to believe this, as the call was screened by her people), and they started acting like that, I would probably also awkwardly play along, just like she did, while wondering to myself, "What in the hell is going on here?"

    Any time that someone prank calls you and starts saying ridiculous things, you get thrown a little bit and end up coming across as foolish.

    The question I'd ask myself is why is the President of France calling me, and not the head of my ticket?
    Several years ago I had an older gentleman who called my phone around 10pm, the first time he said he had the wrong number, the second time he proceeded to talk dirty, I had the common sense the good Lord gave me to hang up the damn phone. He called for a week and left messages on my answering machine that would've made Larry Flynt blush. I had my number changed. No one would've made a big deal out of it, if she would've just hung up on them. By staying on the phone she made an ass out of herself.


    I don''t know if she really fucked the board though. Maybe just put the tip in. -Mrs. Dark

    The moment the guy said that he likes to hunt baby seals I would have hang up on him but that's just me. Palin hardly speaks English, expecting her to understand some French would obviously be too much.

    Palin says enough ridiculous things on her own, so why would she be thrown by that?

    the woman has no general knowledge, she's barely been out of the country, she probably thinks learning about other cultures is unpatriotic and socialist, especially if the other country is france. anyone who's ever watched sarkozy on tv would know what he sounds like speaking in english. anyone with a little bit of knowledge knows what a french accent sounds like. the only thing palin was a victim of is her own ignorance.

    1) You arent a celebrity, bitch. even if you were, wasn't that a BAD thing 2 minutes ago?

    2) You are not a world leader, and never will be. You are not in their exalted ranks. They picked you because you're a retard. Period.
