Pa? Fa? Pufa?

From the very first, I found Michelle Pfeiffer's name intriguing. It's the Pf thing. A silent P followed by a sounded F? Silent P followed by the sounded S, of course, we're all comfortable with: psalm, psychiatry, psoriasis... But the Pf combo felt new and... pfresh.

Especially in light of Pfafftown, a local town here in Forsyth County. It's pronounced Pahf-town. One out of three Fs is silent. That just seems wrong.
