Mon oeil!

Approx. pronunciation : Monnoyy

Literally : "My Eye!"

Invaluable little French utterance expressing total rebuttal of whatever has just been said.

Manages to have all the vigour, but none of the vulgarity, of the equivalent English-language expressions, which mostly involve parts of the anatomy not normally exposed in polite company.

Parting thot: "Human beings are the only creatures that allow their children to come back home." – Bill Cosby
