A project was at its final stage so I sent a closure email to the team members involved.
I got a reply from someone:
"Donc ils ont décidé de garder Dujardin?" (So they have decided to keep Dujardin?)
What the hell, I was scratching my head so hard trying to figure out what he meant, there was no Dujardin in our team.
Since my superior was just next to me, I told him we got a question but I don't know what it meant.
He looked at the mail, telling me that he had no idea, then he pointed to the email title: OS117 (the project name).
"Oh it is a joke!" He giggled. "He is talking about OSS117". Noticing my blank look, he explained: "Dujardin was playing in the film OSS117".
Such a coincidence, the film OSS117 has almost the same name as our project OS117. As a foreigner, I couldn't get the joke because I have not seen that film and didn't know who is Dujardin.
"You do know him, he played in "Un gar et une fille", hubby told me later.
Oh that guy, I like his act in "Un gar et une fille", and he just won the Best Actor award in the Cannes Festival.
Ok, Dujardin, I know you now, you happy? :-)
