French term or phrase:(vous me prenez pour un) jambon (ou quoi)
I gather this is basically: "You think I'm stupid or something?"
I can't think of anything more suggestive than that. Any ideas? I'd also like to confirm that is the right meaning.
The context is not much help: it's a "making of" film, a series of shots in which the director gets a bit (not much) "tough", including one where he says, to no one in particular, "Mais vous me prenez pour un jambon ou quoi?"
In the end I put "Do I look like some sort of idiot?", which isn't quite your suggestion, but it was the phrase "some sort of" that got me on the track, and you were the first to suggest that. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
