Learned this from the niece of my host mom who often babysits for the kids.
“Qui est le cousin de l’oignon?” (Who is the onion’s cousin?)
**Then you pinch the person and they saiy “aiiiie!” (French equivalent of ouch)
And the joke is that “aiie” in French sounds like l’ail (which is garlic, relative of the onion) Silly silly.
Took this pic when I was wandering around Montparnasse with my friend Danica last week. It is “A la Defense Nationale” outside the Denfert-Rochereau metro exit and the Catacombs, which I have yet to explore. We had an expresso and Ben and Jerry’s ice cream (who knew they have it in Paris??) at Indiana Cafe, a chain restaurant/bar.
