Leave 'Em Laughing

Today, my e-Trivia question of the day yesterday:
What was the doomed Marie Antoinette apologizing for when she told her executioner, “Pardon me, sir. I did not mean to do it”?
Answer:  She had stepped on his foot on her way to the guillotine. Her exact words, in French, were“Pardonnez-moi, monsieur. Je ne l’ai pas fait exprès.”
I think if it was me I would have said the same thing, but with a southern accent, I am humble and polite.  But also I would add: 

"If you have to go to the doctor, be sure and send me the bill."
