Oh Captain, My Captain: Ricky van Wolfswinkel

Discussing the likely rankings for this year’s Premier League:

Norwich might do better than last year – they’ve just bought a new striker. And he’ll probably be their captain.

Really? Does he have an amusing name?

I’m glad you asked me that; his name is…Ricky Van Wolfswinkel.

Captain Ricky Van Wolfswinkel (Norwich) vs. Captain Maugrim (Narnia secret police)

Captain Wolf

So, Maugrim is the captain of the secret police working for the Witch in Narnia.

…and?

The secret police are wolves.

…?

Maugrim is the captain of the naughty wolves, and Ricky Van Wolfswinkel has a name that sounds a bit naughty and wolf-related.

That is…just terrible. Terrible.
