A Very Embarassing Freudian Slip


‘It is very rare that the language of finance crosses that of the porn industry. Unless, that is, you are France’s former justice minister Rachida Dati – best known for her run-in with Carla Bruni and returning to work five days after having a baby – who can now add “talking about oral sex on TV” to her resumĂ©. Dati accidentally used the word “fellation” instead of “inflation'” in an interview. In French the two words are very similar: “Fellatio is close to zero,” she said. Monkey is sure it is. Daily Mirror headline on said gaffe: “Minister in TV cock up” – The Guardian.
