REF. Sunday Express Oct. 23rd. Article Kirsty Buchanan.
David Cameron UK prime minister cracked a joke about the stature of French president Nichyolas Sarkozy who could be described at 5'5" as being vertically challenged.
The joke was made at the annual newspaper lunch for regional journalists.
Since it could be termed to be plagiarisation the punchline can be viewed as per credits at the top of this posting.
Sufficient to say Sarkozy (who apparently is known to be self conscious) was not best pleased.
In France it could have been said to have ' Gone down like a lead balloon.'
