This is true Sweet17 BUT ......only if you are at Maternelle school level or 6 year old. We used this at school in the middle of a game to stop everything happening in order to explain something. Can't think of a way for it being used in an adult discussion.

Hah, I can, eric!

What about le roi des andouilles, my neighbour, who was burning wet green stuff in his garden, making so much acrid smoke that I couldn't breathe even taking extra puffs of my inhaler?

Well, he didn't actually stop until I had a word with the maire who then had a word with him.

If adults WOULD behave like naughty children, then they deserve to be treated the same way Cry Out [:'(]
