Who doesn’t like minions from the hit movie Despicable Me? Everybody just loves them with their incompetent and funny antics to their lovable, affectionate, and caring nature—they just can’t pull off the evil genius stunts required of them by Gru. Their real life and short names make them easier to identify with their humongous population of pill shaped yellow individuals.
Fun Minion Facts
1 In Despicable Me 2, the number (626-584-5723) given by Lucy Wilde to Gru is real and even has an outgoing voice mail message of a recording made by Kristen Wiig in character.
2 Evil minions were purple colored because purple is the opposite of yellow in the color spectrum.

And before I say goodbye, let me teach you a few minionese: I’m hungry = me want banana, what? = Po ka, Goodbye = Poopaye!
