What Is a “Monsieur et Madame” French Joke?

While bearing similarities to “Knock knock” jokes in their use of puns as the basic feature, “Monsieur et Madame” French jokes have their specific format: they all start with a question about what an imaginary couple might call their child(ren), based on their last name:

  • “Monsieur et Madame X ont un fils/une fille, comment s’appelle-t-il/elle?”
    (Mr. and Mrs. X have a son/daughter, what’s his/her name?).

What is supposed to cause laughter here is the combination of the given answer, i.e. the child’s first name, with the last name already mentioned in the question. So make sure you say it out-loud to get the French pun!
