Когда критики сходят с ума

В статье 20 worst Dan Brown's sentences на первом месте стоит:

The Da Vinci Code: Title. The Da Vinci Code.

с пояснением:

Leonardo’s surname was not Da Vinci. He was from Vinci, or of Vinci. As many critics have pointed out, calling it The Da Vinci Code is like saying Mr Of Arabia or asking What Would Of Nazareth Do?

Это такой наивный идиотизм со стороны критиков, что даже не знаю, что сказать. Про фон Бисмарка или де Голля им напомнить, что ли?
