    "Quite the contrary, my friend!"

    "Au contraire" has passed into English (and German) usage as an ironic way of stating that the other person is barking up the wrong tree entirely!

    Au contraire is actually a French phrase that has passed in to English intact. It means "on the contrary".

    Mon ami = my friend.

    It means "To (not 'on') the contrary, my friend." It is usually used to indicate that a fact is the opposite of a supposition or belief that has been expressed.

    "On the contrary, my friend!"

    In the common vernacular: "You is WRONG, Be-OTCH!"
