Monsieur et Madame D'ISSOIR ont un fils. Comment s'appelle-t-il? Alain.

English translation of Monsieur et Madame D'ISSOIR ont un fils. Comment s'appelle-t-il? Alain.

Mr. and Mrs. D'ISSOIR have a son. What's his name? Alain.

This joke is a play on words using the French pronunciation. When you say the name Alain, it sounds like 'à l'endroit', which means 'upright', in English. The joke here is that when you read the son's full name 'Alain D'ISSOIR', it sounds like 'à l'endroit', which is intended to be humorous in French because you wouldn't typically expect a person's name to be a phrase.
