My Welsh is a little rusty, but I think that was something about a cock and an arse...

Oh right, it must just be the old classic then: "Welsh is a ridiculous language and I'm a massive gayer". Obviously there's a certain amount of poetic license involved with the translation, but still...

Oh I was only joking. It's not ridiculous, I (like most non welsh speakers I suppose) just find it utterly incomprehensible due to its complete lack of apparent similarities to English. Not to say they should be similar, it's just that comparing English to French, German, Spanish etc. there are a lot of similarities due to the common Latin and Greek roots. I don't know enough about the roots of the Welsh language to say that those same influences aren't there (to be so close and to have been entirely untouched by those linguistic influences would be quite the feat), but they sure as hell aren't obvious. I've watched the odd 5 minutes here and there of Pobyl y Cwm and it baffles the buggery out of me.

Good for the Welsh for wanting to reclaim their national language though.

Welsh is quite odd in that way, just as is Gaelic up here.
