    Hi Rhonda, is this also about Alice in Wonderland?
    If so - and even if not - this link might help you (unless you already know it):

    "Qu'on leur coupe la tÍte!"
    "Coupez-leur la tÍte!"
    Those are the ones I'd probably use (still depending on the context maybe), ouuuaaaahhh...

    I would often watch 'Alice in Wonderland' cartoon when I was a child .
    Of course it was in French & I remember the queen would yell 'Qu'on leur coupe la tÍte !' LOL ..
    So I think this is the right sentence for 'Off with their heads' =)

    Hi, thanks so much for your response! This would actually be the quote from Alice in Wonderland, but the guy is using it in reference to actual beheadings with a guillotine, and linking it with the book. As a writer, this forum is the best thing I have found! God bless and thanks again!

    I'm trying to thank you guys for your posts, but the button is not appearing. I wanted you to know how much I appreciate the help. Is this something I'm not doing correctly?
