I have never really been able to work out the why of the reply "moi non plus" in the notorious Gainsbourg song
"Je t'aime" "Moi non plus"

Perhaps one of our natives could explain?

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Apparently it's something Dali said when asked about the difference between him and Picasso:
"He's Spanish, Me too (moi aussi). He's a genius. Me too (moi aussi). He's a Communist. Me neither (moi non plus)."
