The anti-slavery investigation began when the 43-year-old man was discovered living in dire conditions with missing teeth and torn clothes at a farm near Newport, Wales.

Doesn't that describe most men in Wales?

Slavery is alive and well in the First World countries. From illegals from Middle/South America and Asia being brought in to work in Sweat Shops and for domestic labor in the United States, to foreign children (yes, kids) and teenagers being either kidnapped or lured to smugglers for sex trafficking and prostitution in the United States and Europe.

Even in the Second World, Sex Tourism and Child Prostitution is big business.

If you RTFA, they seem to have been used as farmhands.

Sixty-year-olds as slaves? Really old guys? Seems like a pretty crappy slavery ring if you're looking for labor.

Now that they've taken care of that, have they figured out if the metope is between the triglyphs in the frieze section of the entablature, and the abacus is between the architrave and the aechinus in the capital of classical Greek Doric temples?

It's a ghastly place. Huge gangs of tough, sinewy men roam the Valleys, terrorizing people with their close-harmony singing. You need half a pint of phlegm in your throat just to pronounce the place names. Never ask for directions in Wales, Baldrick. You'll be washing spit out of your hair for a fortnight.

A young American is backpacking around the UK, and he hears to larger women speaking in a pub in an accent he doesn't recognise.  He asks them "Are you two ladies from Ireland?"  One of them snidely replies "It's Wales, you idiot."  Guy says "Fine, are you two whales from Ireland?"

Nice one Subby.....
Back when I was 17 my dad took me to Swansea for a trial at Swansea City FC and to visit the motherland. We were in a little village called Llanelli. To this day, we have this running joke on how to pronounce it. To anyone but Welsh people, the obvious pronunciation would appear to be "La-nel-lee" but the locals there seem to use some sort of nasal-snorting-klingon-esque enunciation that makes it sound like "Lock-neck-lee"- which is still completely wrong and while it appears to be a solid three syllables, the Welsh somehow find a way to make it sound like one.  The  locals made sure my dad and I knew we were butchering the pronunciation but also seemed very amused at our attempts to say it correctly.  I remember thinking- This Word should be easy to say because it has three vowels in it.

I've said it once, I'll say it a thousand times.

Welsh looks like someone ate some alphabet soup, puked it back up, and took that arrangement of letters as a new word.

Llanelli, population 50,000, a village. Now it ain't a teeming metropolis, but it ain't a village.

I live in Texas..... 50,000 people qualifies as a village or a barrio as we say in Mexican.
