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!"

When I was in Mexico,
me and my friend met a group of lovely young American girls who were fascinated by our English ways. Among the questions we were asked were:
"Do you have black people in England?"

"Do you celebrate Independence Day/Thanksgiving?"

"Do you take the luge to school?" (She meant the tube)

"Do all your girl friends have babies?" (After explaining that Essex has the highest teen pregnancy rate in England)

My mum also sat next to an American woman on a plane who, confused by her UHT milk, asked the stewardess what kind of animal a "yoot" is.
