This is a question Stupid Tourists

What's the stupidest thing you've ever heard a tourist say? Ever heard an American talking about visiting "Scotchland, England", or (and this one is actually real) a Japanese couple talking about the correct way to say Clapham is actually Clatham, as "ph" sounds are pronounced "th". Which has a certain logic really. UPDATE: Please, no more Loogabarooga stories. It's getting like, "and I opened my eyes and my mum had left me a cup of tea!"

I was the clever tourist
When I was a poor student I got the ferry from Belfast to visit my sister at university in Glasgow. Being very diligent, and having exams coming up I brought a file of 'stuff' with me.
On the way home I was stopped by security at the docks
Security girlie "where have you been?"
Me "to visit my sister. "
SG "why?'
Me "just a family visit"
SG " what are all these notes then if it's a family visit?"
Me "just notes, I'm a student"
SG "that's okay then, off you go"

Ha. Silly woman. They were the plans for the IRA to take over the British mainland....
