Oh man, I finally get that scene in one of the Peter Sellers movies
where he is playing Inspector Cleuseau and says something like
"Soon we will find out who committed the mairdair."

Then the people start saying "Merde? What merde?"

"Who said merde? I did not say merde..."

etc. I saw that movie 25 years ago and I just now get the joke. spike
