[merthyr tydfil] does it take the prize

I wonder how true this is:
I've just looked at a number of lists and the most consistently bad was Merthyr Tydfil. I can't see this, actually. The place seems to be a hotbed of discovery:

While testing a new angina treatment, researchers in Merthyr Tydfil discovered (purely by accident) that the new drug had erection-stimulating side effects. This discovery would go on to form the basis for Viagra.

I was new to North Yorkshire. "How do you like it around here?" my hostess asked. "Well, Middlesbrough is pretty grim." "Oh, no-one lives in Middlesbrough" said she.
