There is a hairdressers called ‘Fanny Coiffure’ not far from where I live, ‘Moron Constructions’ is also local, and let us not forget ‘Batiman’ which often has younger anglophones sniggering. Oh and ‘Le Vieux Pouf’, which is a decorating business. I did tell him…

There was an Assistante Sociale in Mazamet called Mme Homo that used to help us. Probably the same family. We were sufficiently infantile to have a little giggle at her name.

Lindsey Doyle was a youngster in Southwold when our family lived there… many years ago. Her name always made us smile… I used linseed oil on my hockey club and could never understand why her family had put the names together like that…

Sadly, she contracted a virulent form of cancer and died within a few months… shook us to our very foundations. (Us youngsters had considered ourselves invincible…) :zipper_mouth_face:

Our doctor is called Martian :alien:

Edit- her treatment is out of this world…groan😋
