Quelle langue!

Was having a discussion re. the names of the Seven Dwarves in French (as one does) and discovered that Dopey is called “Simplet” – which translates as “simple-minded” and seems rather close to “simpleton.” Doesn’t have quite the same adorable ring as “dopey,” does it? Pauvre Simplet!
