I shall call them...

I don't know why I just thought of this, but now it's rattling around in my head and refuses to leave until I blog it all out:

When I lived in Grenoble, oh so many years ago now, there was a sign somewhere on the bus route from my house to campus¹ that pointed the way to the couvent des Minimes. The Minimes were, undoubtedly, an order of monks who had lived in the convent years ago². But every time I read the sign, I giggled a little inside at the thought of a whole convent full of Mini-Me.

¹ Bus #33 - why do I still remember this?
² Indeed they were.

Were the Mini-Mes also monks?

The other day I read that on a mug or something as "couvert des mimes" and *I* laughed when I translated it as the cover of mimes.

If you'd spent a year in La Rochelle ou could have hung around the Port of Mini-yous.
