Follower of [[Tarvu]]. Min-Min was a dentist and orthodontist who cured [[Tarvu]] of a terrible and very painful gum infection. As [[Tarvu]] had no money to pay Min-Min, he donated one of his teeth. The tooth ('The Tooth of [[Tarvu]]') was put on display in the British Museum, but mysteriously disppeared in 1960.It is thought that it is currently owned by the Sultan of Oman. However, the Sultan has always vigorously denied this. Follower of [[Tarvu]]. Min-Min was a dentist and orthodontist who cured [[Tarvu]] of a terrible and very painful gum infection.

In 1999, toothpaste manufacturers Procter&Gamble angered the [[Givil]] when they released a special edition pack of Crest toothpaste bearing the likeness of Min-Min and some supposedly ancient Tarvunian text. However, the graphic designers had used the old [[Tarvunian]] characters for their aesthetic value and did not take into account their meaning. The renowned [[Tarvunian]] scholar [[Peter Forsyth-Henderson]] translated the passage from his hospital bed (he had undergone some major cosmetic surgery), and revealed that it said: "//Taste not this bitter pus//". The toothpaste was swiftly withdrawn from the market but returned in 2001 with another promotional special edition pack: this time for children's movie //Shrek//.
