A French actress, returning from a visit to the United States, brought back a superb mink coat.
"How beautiful," remarked an envious script girl at the studio. "Where did mademoiselle get that?"
"I met a gentleman," said the haughty actress disdainfully, "who had $5000....et voila!"
That summer the script girl took her vacation in the U.S. On her return she sported a mink coat equally as beautifully as the actress's.
"Scare bleu!" exclaimed the astonished actress. "How did you get that?"
"The same way as mademoiselle," replied the script girl icily, "only in my case I met a hundred gentlemen, and each had $5."
