French PM's name is Ayrault, but you can call him Dick5/20/2012
French diplomacy has been the butt of more than few jokes, but it's now a bona fide laugh riot in the Middle East. That's because France's new prime minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, has a last name that sounds virtually identical to what Lebanese and Palestinian Arabic speakers use as a slang term for "penis." An editor at Al-Arabiya said the pan-Arabic network will muddle through its news reports without bastardizing the pronunciation, even as viewers titter. "We have to be professional," he said. Not so much the person who answered the phone at the office of the French president and chuckled before declining comment. Hey, it could be worse: The president could have appointed Hugh Jass or Seymour Butz.
What's the most embarrassing name you've heard?
