Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In their taped conversation, obtained by AFP, one of the callers pretended to be Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and asked Sarkozy, "How's it going?"
"I'm well and everything seems to have gone pretty well (with the vote)," Sarkozy replies.

"You're very kind," he adds when congratulated for the win. "You know that I'm a big fan of Canada and our bilateral relations are excellent."

The prankster apologizes for his poor French skills, which he claims to have picked up at a Montreal language school.

They invite Sarkozy to visit Canada to eat poutine, a popular Quebec dish of fries, cheese curds and gravy. The president elect accepts.

"Since you are a rightist, and I am a conservative and (US) President George W. Bush is too, I would like to invite him to dine with us too," the prankster says, adding: "I've always dreamed of hosting a dinner of fools."

At this point, the line goes dead.
