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!"

Not me, my auntie
In her younger days, she used to go to Italy pretty regularly. One day when travelling on a train through Italy, two Italian gentlemen were sitting opposite her, discussing with each other what they'd like to do to this Englishwoman given the chance to get her anywhere near a bed.

At that moment, a spider dropped down from the ceiling on it's web straight into my auntie's face. Cue her jumping up and screaming and waving her arms around.

The Italian gents were rather perplexed by what just happened until my auntie told them, in perfect Italian, that she was terrified of spiders.

As the penny dropped about the lack of language barrier, so did their faces.
