There was a brand new missionary to Quebec and as is often the custom he
was asked to introduce himself to the congregation at church. He said 'Bonjour, je m'appelle Elder Smith et je suis
'new'." In his nervousness he had forgotten the French word for new,
which is "nouveau" and had unfortunately substituted it with the English
word "new." The entire congregation erupted into a
tremendous laugh at hearing the Elder say he was "naked."
