Did you hear about the weather in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch today?

Okay, first things first: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is a place. A real place that exists, in fact. It's in northwest Wales, and it's really hot. This weatherman, who is probably pretty pleased with himself right about now, casually pronounced it perfectly. Maybe he even relished the challenge because that's what keeps work interesting.

Now for a conspiracy theory: I'm not trying to blow up this dude's spot or purport to know anything about the weather (I didn't even bring an umbrella to work today, and it's currently pouring rain), but did he even need to say "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch"? It seems like he's actually talking about a nearby town and just threw in the tongue-twister to shake things up. Not that life wouldn't be more interesting if all weather presenters had to try to say "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch" before listing any temperatures.
