More from Versailles' quartier Nôtre-Dame 
How do you say "Knock, knock..." in French?
Toc, toc...

Expression ... a "Knock, knock"  joke making the rounds in strike-plagued France this week:

Toc, toc...  Knock, knock...
Qui est là?  Who's there?  
Lara.  Lara.
Lara qui?  Lara who?
Lara Finerie est fermé.  (The refinerie is closed.)

un heurtoir, un marteau de porte:  a door knocker
frapper à la porte:  to knock at the door
un marteau:  a hammer
