By Robert Paul Reyes

"A British weatherman became a viral hero when he flawlessly pronounced the name of Welsh city Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch."

The name of this Welsh city is guaranteed to make your spell check go bonkers and British weathermen lose sleep at night, but this meteorologist didn`t skip a beat when it came time to read the name of the Welsh city with the highest temperature -- and longest name -- in the region: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

I still have trouble saying "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious", even though as I child sang that ditty hundreds of times. If I tried saying "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch", I would suffer a brain aneurysm.

Ok so this Brit pronounced the name of this Welsh city flawlessly, but did he get the forecast right?
