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.
