Inflation, fellation, who gives a ...

To the advice don't speak with your mouth full we can add another rule for politicians: don't speak too quickly.
Former French Justice Minister Rachida Dati
When you are in too much of a hurry to get the words out, things can go wrong as the former French Justice Minister Rachida Dati found to the amusement of many watchers of political television interviews this week. While mouthing off at a rapid rate about the perils of rising prices she substituted "fellation" for "inflation" which my handy little Google translator treats as follows:
London's Daily Telegraph reminds us that Ms Date was dropped from the French government last year "after her penchant for designer dresses and appearing on the covers of celebrity magqzines prompted criticism that a senior minister should not engage in such frivolity." She is now a member of the European Parliament and gained her latest 20 seconds of fame while launching an attack on foreign investment funds during an interview on Canal Plus.
Lapsus: Dati confond "inflation" et... "fellation"

A translation? 
"When I see some of them looking for returns of 20 or 25 per cent, at a time when fellatio is close to zero, and in particular in a slump, that means we are destroying businesses,"
