I have to ask myself if Jews who were freed from slavery by the Pharaoh's did not indeed call themselves Pharisees? Or were the Pharisees really Jews who were loyal to the Pharaoh's. It kind of reminds me of how people are often questioned about their credibility and quickly lie to cover up another lie.\
"Who are you?"
"We are Pharaoh's."
"I know all the Pharaoh's, funny thing is that I have never met you before."
"Oh did I say Pharaoh's I met to say Pharisees"
"Who are Pharisees?"
"We are something like the Pharaoh's but from... that land over there," he said as he pointed round.
