Prankin' Palin!

Governor Sarah Palin is the victim of a giant prank! Quebec comedy duo the Masked Avengers rang up the VP hopeful pretending to be French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

The Avengers, Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel, spoke about about killing animals and First Lady of France Carla Bruni's skills in the bedroom. The pranksters even went as far as to compliment the former beauty queen on her Hustler "documentary" titled "Nailin' Paylin." The Alaskan governor sounded confused and laughed off the unusual flattery.

Palin's camp released a statement on Saturday, saying, "Governor Palin was mildly amused to learn that she had joined the ranks of heads of state, including President Sarkozy, and other celebrities in being targeted by these pranksters."

The jokesters -- who have also prank called Britney Spears -- went on "The Today Show" this morning to clear up the question everyone wants to know -- did Sarah have any idea that she was being set up? "Absolutely not," the duo replied. "She was as gullible as Britney Spears."
