Well, I know that this will be (has been) met with ridicule and negativity but like I said on this chaps YouTube vid (link above); Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance. We should all give this some consideration before the mass character assassination begins IMO.

I do wish the Americans/Canadians could pronounce Van Gogh's name correctly though:

Most Brits don't either. It's not "Van Go" or "Van Goff", but something more like "Fan Choch", with the "ch"s pronounced as in the German, Scottish or Welsh.

Ahhh the voiceless velar fricative....the only English people capable of pronouncing it are scousers.

I read a detailed article arguing that though the clever people like to scoff at 'Van Go' and insist it should be pronounced 'Van Choch' - with both CH's pronounced as in 'loch', there is considerable debate actually whether the particular regional dialect would've had the name pronounced as Hoch, Choch, or indeed 'Goch' - the 'o' being quite a bit softer than the English 'o' also.

My personal preference is to settle for 'Vincent Von Google', and anyone who doesn't like it is an elitist buffoon.

I'm wondering whether someone has misunderstood the bogus newspaper report which claimed Mary Kelly "had the painters in" on November 9.

Love,
