This is slightly off-topic, I know, but I can't resist relating this silly story concerning a town in Wales. One of the longest place names in the world is,

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

(often abbreviated to Llanfair PG) on the Isle of Anglersey.

A young couple were touring Wales, reached Llanfair PG and were fascinated with the name and how it was pronounced. They went into a local restaurant for a coffee and asked a passing member of staff, "Would you be kind enough to pronounce the name of where we are, very, very slowly".

"Of course", she replied, "B-u-r-g-e-r--K-i-n-g"!
