Do you have Prince Albert in a can?

Two Canadian radio humorists trick French
President Chirac into taking their telephone call.

MONTREAL (AFP) - Two Canadian radio humorists tricked French
President Jacques Chirac into taking their telephone call and broadcast it after pretending to be aides to Prime Minister-elect Stephen Harper. The "Masked Avengers" -- radio station CKOI disc jockeys Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel -- added Chirac to their long list of victims when they called his office in Paris saying Harper wanted to speak with him.

"I would like to offer my sincere congratulations for your electoral success," Chirac said as he began the call. "We have excellent relations and I am certain that they will continue in the best spirit," the French leader said.

Using an exaggerated accent, Audette, posing as the victorious Canadian Conservative Party leader, complained to Chirac that French media had given him a "bad reputation" and hoped this could be improved. When Chirac added an invitation to 'Harper' to visit France, the fake Canadian prime minister-elect replied that he had already planned to visit France "as the opening act" in a show by Canadian singer Garou.
