Lol. Should have known. But then I saw "Popty ping" and I knew that had to be gibberish. But, nope, Welsh.

Isn't Popty ping just the second most beautiful word after Pili pala? At least it's not a test of pronunciation =D

When you know the word for oven is popty, it makes perfect sense

As a Welshman and with Welsh as my mother tongue, born and bred in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, I have never ever heard anyone actually use the word 'Popty Ping'. As for Pysgod Wibblywobbly...utter gibberish 'wibblywobbly' is an English 'word'.

Yes well I've never heard anyone actually use the word 'Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis', but it's still a word. I have, however, heard of a little something called 'vernacular'.

moronydd isn't a word, moron is plural and singular, bachgyn isn't a word its bachgen or bechgyn, isht is'nt a genuine word its a slang word, and as for pysgod wibbly wobbly, that's absolute rubbish and i can assureyou nobody uses it.

I know and it was fun! Ond dydi 'Wibblywobbly' ddim yn air Gymraeg. Fasa 'Wibli wobli' yn fwy gywir.

Boy in Welsh is 'bachgen', so a typo to correct. I am also very confused on 'isht'. 'isht y lawr' is a mangled form for 'sit down' and not 'shut up'. In north Wales, 'shut up' is 'cau dy geg', and 'cau dy ben' in the south (literally shut your head for the latter).

As a Welsh person popty ping isn't a real welsh word FYI lol and pysgod wibbly wobbly? If you think they mean Microwave and Jellyfish they don't lol

Meicrodon is mircowave

slefren fôr is jellyfish

Pysgod is fish though, wibbly wobbly is nothing lol
