Rachida Dati's "dildo" code of practice

Trust Rachida Dati.

The former French justice minister and now European parliamentarian has once again proven herself to be adept at unintentional sexual innuendo.

Few will forget her "fellatio - inflation" slip of the tongue during a televised interview last September when talking about foreign investment funds.


The clip soon became an Internet hit and even Dati managed to see the funny side, admitting at the time that she had been talking too quickly.

Now though she has given television viewers and Internauts alike another reason to smile by inadvertently slipping in the word "dildo" during an interview.

It came over a week ago on April 1 (how appropriate you might be thinking) as Dati was a guest on Christophe Barbier's programme on the all-news channel LCI.

Up for discussion were laicity and Islam, with Dati in full flow as Barbier asked her about France's "code de la laïcité" or "code of secularism" and whether she thought it was useful.

Dati replied that it laid down a "code of practice" and started giving examples of other fields in which similar "sets of written rules explaining how people should behave" also worked.

Except she used the word "code" a little too often and at one point substituted "gode" or "dildo" before instantly correcting herself and continuing.

The slip-up would have probably have remained unnoticed had it not been for sharp-eared Nicolas Domenach, a journalist on Canal +, who happily ran a copy of the clip on Thursday.

You can hear Dati's '"dildo" reference at 14 seconds in a clip which surely - thanks largely to Domenech - has all the right ingredients to go viral.



Of course if Dati, who is undoubtedly a very bright and articulate woman, would just ease down on the speed at which she speaks, these sorts of mistakes might not be made.

But there again, what would the world be like without the occasional misplaced "fellatio" or "dildo"?

She tries so hard to appear competent and on top of issues, when she clearly is not. A little modesty on her part, answering at a more measured pace, and none of those slips of the tongues would occur.

Perhaps she was just pre-occupied with what she had planned when she got home?
