||Taffy... by Merriment
The river Taff is the river which runs through Cardiff (the capital city of Wales).
There's a rhyme to go with the name - its not very nice though:
Taffy was a Welshman,
Taffy was a thief,
Taffy came to my house
And stole a joint of beef.
Its a common mistake in England to call someone from North Wales a 'Taff' - that's as inaccurate as calling someone from Liverpool a Cockney.
