Que dit un oignon quand il se cogne? Aïe!

English translation of Que dit un oignon quand il se cogne? Aïe!

What does an onion say when it bumps itself? Ouch!

The joke is a play on words in French. In French, 'Aïe' is an expression used when someone is in pain, similar to 'ouch' in English. The joke here is that an onion, when cut, can make someone cry, which can metaphorically imply pain. However, in this joke, it's the onion itself proclaiming 'Aïe' or 'ouch' as if it's in pain, implying it has bumped itself.
