Monsieur et madame CIVE ont un fils - comment s'appelle-t-il? Jean.

English translation of Monsieur et madame CIVE ont un fils - comment s'appelle-t-il? Jean.

Mr. and Mrs. CIVE have a son - what is his name? Jean.

This is a type of joke common in France, 'Monsieur et Madame' jokes, which are similar to 'Knock, knock' jokes in English. The humor lies in the play on words. Here 'Jean' (John in English) and ‘Cive’ when said together sounds like 'j'en cive' which has no specific meaning but it's the phonetic trick of sounding like something else that is the basis of humor in these jokes.
