I don't know how universal this is, but the great Parisian restaurant  
Maxim's comes to mind (as an alternative spelling for a man's name),  
as does Maxime McKendry, whose [French] husband would no doubt be  
fascinated, as possible exceptions, but then they do say they prove  
the rule. Of course, when they say that, the word "prove" means  


"S'ils n'ont pas de pain, vous fait-on dire, qu'ils  mangent de la  
brioche!" / "If there's no bread to be had, one has to say, let them  
eat cake!"
     -- attributed to an unnamed noblewoman by Jean-Jacques Rousseau,  
"Confessions", 1782

"Why don't they get new jobs if they're unhappy -- or go on Prozac?"
     -- Susan Sheybani, assistant to Bush campaign spokesman Terry  
Holt, 07/29/04
