A spoof French news website had the last laugh this week after a story that claimed most French men thought the clitoris was a Toyota model, tricked members of the Italian media into mocking the naivité of their Latin rivals in France.

When the editors of Le Gorafi, a fake news website known as the French version of The Onion, ran a “story” claiming 89 percent of French men thought the clitoris was a car, they can’t have imagined it would provoke more than a knowing chuckle from regular readers.

Apparently, though, they didn’t count on the eagerness of sections of the Italian media to show up their romantically “confused” French rivals.

At least six Italian news outlets this week rushed to report, with relish, the “findings” of the TNS-Sofres survey mentioned by Le Gorafi, whose name is derived from the (real) French newspaper Le Figaro.

"89 percent of French men confuse the 'clitoride', which in French is called the 'clitoris', with a car from the Japanese car manufacturer Toyota,” declared leading Italian news agency ANSA.
