A taunting rhyme for someone who is caught staring…

Monique Palomares wrote from France, "This rhyme reminds me of what we'd say when we were young and someone would stare, 'Tu veux ma photo ?' (You want my photo?) and the response would be 'Non, je ne collectionne pas les photos de singe !' (No, I don't collect photos of monkeys)."

In the USA, if someone stared at us we used say, "Take a picture it lasts longer!" -Mama Lisa
