This Is What Happens When You Ask Americans To Name A British City That Isn't London

...Paris? Also there is no such place as Huffingandpuffingshire.

Blogger Stacey Cavanagh conducted a survey asking a thousand people in the US to name a British city... other than London.

Other suggestions: "Worcesterhrirehamingtom", "Huffingandpuffingshire", "Newbugglesville", "Naryatoothintown", "Pussymouth", "Crapola" and "Mitt Romney!". Sadly, these are not real places.

But overall, Stacey was pretty impressed with the answers:

"I was surprised by how many lesser known cities (and towns, of course) were named," she said. "Yes, we can all scoff at Wales and Paris in the top 10, but actually, there were a lot of sensible answers. And I don't think the British would fare any better the other way around."

And in case any British people are thinking of being smug, she's also planning to ask Brits to name places in the US. So maybe wait for those results to come in before mocking...
