friedrich II vs voltaire - riddle

Post by AgentBreschnew » 05-02-2008 15:25

hey guys - my man just sent me this sweet historical riddle:

the king of prussia friedrich the second wrote to his friend voltaire:

P---------6
_____ a _____ ?

venez-----100
(igore the "---" it's just a palceholder)

voltaire answered: Ga

one hint: both spoke basically french ;)

it took me some time to solve it, in russia we've got a related one.
try it without google.

I don't speak French, so I guess I'm out.

Well, being "not so good" at french and not speaking french at all is a slight difference, if you can follow me.

OMG.. I suppose that flu has made my mind go abroad %)

I certainly have written "ferdinand" in the topic x)

... of course it's friedrich the second - not any ferdinand -.-

I'm pretty ashamed of that terrible mistake - but be understandingly.. I had about 39,6 œC temperature when i wrote that ;)

could a mod correct that mistake in the topic headline please?

:D

venez souper à 100 sous 6.
But "100 sous 6" means nothing ...

Venez souper à sans souci
But it's not "french" (I know because I'm french) the correct sentence should be : "venez souper sans souci".
