Amazingly Llanfairpwllgwingyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllandysilio gogogoch¹ is located in Welsh!²


Phonetically: Llan-vire-pooll-guin-gill-go-ger-u-queern-drob-ooll-llandus-ilio-gogo-goch






¹ It apparently translates as « The Church of St Mary in the hollow of the white hazel near the rapid whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio near a red cave. »

² And I was brave enough to type it in Google Maps since I am not hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobiac

The number two guy in the Linux kernel developer hierarchy used to be a guy named Alan Cox. (He works for Intel these days.) Linus Torvalds has final say on what goes into the Linux kernel, but things had to get past Alan to be passed to Linus for approval.

People interested in Linux would follow his blog to get hints of what was going on. Then he decided to learn Welsh, and as an aid to that, started keeping his blog in Welsh.

There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth in Linux land.

How about this? It is Mexico in Maine. It always makes people driving from southern USA to Canada very, very confused.

... And don't forget the woefully inaccurately named town of Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania. You can't begin to count all of the people who think they've made great time, and take the wrong exit off the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

A co-worker, decades ago, had been in the Army, and at one point was stationed in Texas. He and a couple of his buddies had gotten a three day pass, signed out a jeep, and were off to a town in the area.

They got a little confused in their directions. They wound up in a town by that name...in Kansas. They had an interesting time explaining to their sergeant just why they were several days overtime getting back from their pass...

A policeman pulls a man over for speeding and asks him to get out of the car. After looking the man over the policeman says, "Sir, I couldn't help but notice your eyes are bloodshot. Have you been drinking?" The man gets really indignant and says, "Officer, I couldn't help but notice your eyes are glazed. Have you been eating doughnuts?"

or

Three men walk into a bar, the fourth one ducks?
Or even better, three men walk into a bar WITH ducks...

I've decided to become an author and write about little people.

It will be a series of short stories.
