Une maman citron dit à ses enfants: Pour vivre longtemps, il ne faut jamais être pressé!

English translation of Une maman citron dit à ses enfants: Pour vivre longtemps, il ne faut jamais être pressé!

A lemon mother tells her children: To live a long time, you should never be rushed!

This is a pun joke in French. The mother lemon warns her children not to be 'pressé' (rushed), making this double entendre because 'pressé' in French could mean being in a hurry or pressed, as in a lemon being squeezed or pressed for juice. The joke lies in the play of words that links the state of being rushed in life to the actual action of pressing a lemon, which could 'shorten' its lifespan (as it would be consumed).
