If you thought you were badass for being able to pronounce supercalifragilisticexpialidocious -- the famous long AF word from "Mary Poppins" that means "something to say when you have nothing to say" -- meet Liam Dutton. He's a weatherman for Channel 4 News, and he can ✨flawlessly✨ pronounce Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.
Nope, that's a not a chain of random letters I just banged out on my keyboard.

I think it's safe to say nobody wants this word to pop up in any spelling bee ever.
