Hot Slut Of The Day!

Liam Dutton,the Welsh weatherman who has become a viral star thanks to how the town name of “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch” smoothly and flawlessly poured out of his mouth without a bump or hiccup.

Before his weather broadcast on UK’s Channel 4 News the other day, Liam let his followers on Twitter know that he was going to attempt to pronounce the name of the 58-letter town in Wales. Liam attempted it and according to the most important Welsh person, Catherine Zeta-Jones, he did it perfectly. If you haven’t already, swoon while watching Liam demonstrate his amazing tongue skills while pronouncing the unpronounceable:

Fun fact: In “My Mom Texting Talk,” “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch” translates into “Hi honey, how are you? I’m watching a Robin Williams movie. Gotta go. Love you. Mom.” 

According to Wikipedia, the town’s name wasn’t as long, but some 19th century STUNT QUEENS made it longer to attract tourists.

This village was originally known as Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll and is sometimes still referred to as Llanfairpwllgwyngyll and was given its long name in the 19th century in an attempt to develop it as a commercial and tourist centre (see Significance of the name below). The village is still signposted Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, marked on Ordnance Survey maps as Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll and known to locals as Llanfairpwll or Llanfair. The railway station, despite having signs displaying the long name, is officially named Llanfairpwll.

I’m not hating on those shameless 19th century STUNT QUEENS, because if they never made Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll’s name longer, we would have never gotten a viral clip of Liam Dutton pronouncing it like a champion. Even though he should get a gold medal for that, those of us who can perfectly pronounce Chiwetel Ejiofor’s name during a conversation are not that impressed. Naomi Watts is also not that impressed.

Although, Naomi Watts needs to do that over, because I don’t think I heard her pronounce the “gwyngyll” in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

And you just know that some attention whore celebrity is going to name their kid “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.”
