As a native speaker of German, pronouncing "pf" comes naturally. I actually even pronounce the "h" in Pfhor by forcibly aspirating the consonant cluster. I find it makes the puns funnier rather than breaking them. What's the point of pronouncing Morpfhine as "Morphine"? Where's the fun in correctly pronouncing some English word?

As for other words:
S'pht: I try to say that without any vowels, but usually fail due to laziness, ending up with something like s-fut (one and a half syllables).
W'rkncacnter: Vur-kn-KUCK-n-ter (five syllables!)
Jjaro: Juh-JAH-ro (two and a half syllables)
Mjolnir: MYOL-neer
