This is great. There is a popular misconception amongst the English that the motto of the French Navy was once “A l’eau, C’est l’heure.” But this is actually a wonderful pun. Translated it is moderately convincing, meaning “To the water, it is the hour”, but when spoken aloud it actually sounds like the English phrase, with all of its comical overtones, “Hello Sailor.”
