I have no idea what this is, but it blew my mind.
I'm told they made it long on purpose, the original Welsh name was the comparatively curt "Llanfair-Pwllgwyngyll""
I expected it to be something like Linswich, once it got pronounced. Then I remembered we were dealing with Welsh, not Gaelic.
Best I can figure, Wales exported most of their consonants to eastern europe.. so now there are cities called "Wyllullali-byrilin" and "Czrchnrnzk" on opposite sides of the EU.
Somebody shut that drunk baby up so I can hear the Welshman.

"Actually Stephen, the longest city name is Roooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooome. Do I get a point for that?"
"No, Alan, I'm afraid you do not."
I can see where imperialist foreigners got Bangkok out of that. They heard that whole string of gibberish and were like, you know what? Fuck this. Your city's name is Bangkok cause you pissed us off.

There are plenty of spittle on that computer screen.

The Welsh alphabet doesn't care about your feelings.
The vowel-to-consonant ratio is baffling.

Fuck you Wales, nobody likes you.
Welsh isn't a language, it's an exercise in clearing your throat.
We need to find a way to activate that tag.
