Gestes français – French Gestures

Gesture 7: « Mon œil ! »

To express your disbelief at what someone is telling you, use your index finger to pull down the skin under your eye and say, “Mon œil !” 

This is equivalent to the English expression “My foot!”

This gesture is a much stronger version of Qu’est-ce qu’il chante, là ?
