    Lol. Some funny word play there

    Kinda spoils it though when you know that in the correct Dutch pronunciation the gh is not silent!

    yes i know, strange isn't it? sometimes English gives me fits with words spelled the same but meaning different things. Poor man, i bet he know how to pronounce his name, even if we don't.

    I don't know about actually Dutch, but in an episode of Dr. Who, they pronounced it "Van Gof".
