were you born in a church?

Ok, this is totally random and actually has nothing to do with Arabic, but I thought it was really interesting and kind of funny. We have a guy in our language class right now who is from Holland.  Today he was telling us that in Dutch, when someone continuously leaves a door open, you say to them, “Were you born in a church??”  I just thought it was really interesting the the Dutch version of “were you born in a barn?” involved a church…

Makes me kinda curious, for all of you out there living in other cultures, is there a phrase in your language like this?  If so, which one is it – barn or church or something else entirely?  I’ll try to figure out if there is an Arabic one and let ya know!
