Sarah Palin received a prank call on Saturday. Marc-Antoine Audette, a Canadian talk show host, posed as French president Nicholas Sarkozy during the six-minute call in which they discussed hunting, French First Lady Carla Bruni, and Joe the Plumber. On hunting by helicopter with "Sarkozy", the Republican VP candidate replied, "Well, I think we could have a lot of fun together while we're getting work done. We can kill two birds with one stone that way."
Known as the Masked Avengers, the comedic duo, who prank-called Sarah Palin, are notorious for calling up world leaders and celebrities. Despite numerous giveaways, Palin seemed to be unaware that she was being pranked until the end of the call, but took it in stride, even asking what radio station was broadcasting the prank. However, an aide quickly hung up the phone after realizing the joke.
