Mentone

A resort city in France squeezed between Monaco and the Italian border. In France it is spelled Menton, in Italy Mentone. I once witnessed a performance in which an actor, when asked who he was supposed to be, turned up the label on his costume and read out, “Viss-count Meant-one.” I thought that was pretty funny, and in keeping with the part, but I doubt that many in the audience caught the joke.
