Whenever we come across an article about us that's not written in English, it seems at least one or two words really jump out, almost in a threatening way.
In this article, the word is hoogste.
It's funny how the mind works. Hoogste made me think of hog sty (as in pig sty).
Was a stranger in a strange land calling us smelly?
A quick check on Wiktionary revealed hoogste is the superlative of hoog.
Yes, of course.
And hoog ... is Dutch for "high."
As in tall.
As in the World's Tallest Water Ride.
As in Pilgrims Plunge.
Whew. Another international incident averted.
