Pure guesswork now, but it seems to mention explosions and (beach?) clothing.

Which brings the word Bikini to mind - beachwear and Bikini atoll.

My French being tres dodgy I ran this through an online translator (Free Translation Online which is at http://translation2.paralink.com/) and got this...

"this word ciglant as meme explosion .......corresponds at the level of the vetement of beach has an aneantissment of the vetue surface, has an extreme minimization of virtuousness".

A bit garbled but it explodes Bikini Atoll out of the water in favour of skimpy bikinis. I think.

I'm prepared to be corrected, but I think the Wumpy one mentioned Bikini atoll as being the location of the (nuclear) explosion and the Q mentions something being the same as the explosion - i.e. the name.

Yes,  you are all obviously franglaises -  it was in fact describing the similarity of the effect on French males between both the powerful nuclear test on the Bikini atoll and the the latest fashion in  swimwear,.... the Bikini.
