Melbourne, Sept 28 (ANI): Former French justice minister Rachida Dati has said the reason the word inflation came out as fellatio during her talk, was because she was speaking too fast.
Dati, 44, laughed at the mistake she had made on Canal Plus television during a radio interview.
"I just spoke too quickly but, well, if that lets everybody have a laugh, then that's fine," News.com.au quoted her as saying.
The MEP had confused oral sex with rising prices as she launched an attack on foreign investment funds.
"When I see some of them looking for returns of 20 or 25 percent, at a time when fellatio is close to zero, and in particular in a slump, that means we are destroying businesses," she had told Canal Plus in a midday interview.
The clip was posted online by French website Lepost.fr, which said it has been viewed 120,000 times, and it was also viewed on other video-sharing sites such as YouTube and Daily Motion. (ANI)
