Charles de Gaulle (1890 - 1970), French general and president, was very popular, almost a hero to most frenchmen (including to himself).

In 1965 there was a plebiscite in France and the great majority of the French people approved of the way General de Gaulle was governing the country.

One of the Gaulle's ministers was surprised at the results and hurried to tell the general the good news.

" My God, you have won by almost 90% !" the minister exclaimed.

De Gaulle smiled and replied, " Just call me Mon General. There's no need to exaggerate"
