The Champions League isn't.

The Eurovision song contest isn't.

Every episode of popular 80's cop show Colombo was in fact filmed in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Norway is named Norway as a Geordie once said he was not going to visit the place, he flat refused saying "Nor way am i ganna gae to that cold flea pit" and from that a nation was born.

A scotch egg contains up to 4 measures of scotch.

A dog egg is not an egg at all.

Wales has started mining again, they've recently found some copper in Snowdonia....

Swansea, originally called 'Swans E', was named after a Class A drug used by swans and other wildfowl.

Swansea is now a very beautiful Welsh city. There is a coastal region off Swansea called Mumbles. It is so named because it is for Welsh people that cannot speak audibly and don't mix well. They also complain a lot and are not very confrontational.

If you go to the cafe in Mumbles and ask for a toasted teacake they will take your money and then reply "mmmmgnuffmmmm gnuffmumumum blu mumble" (Whatever that means?).

No it is not. The new harbour area and White Rock stadium are quite nice but the Quadrant, High St and the area around the old Vetch are still minging.

That said, the beach is lovely and Oystermouth Castle (in Mumbles)and Singleton Park are very pleasant.

Isn't Catherine Zeta Jones a Mumbles lass?

Scandinavia is so called because when you look at a map of the region it perfectly resembles the silhouette of a scanner
