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!"

american wankers
The only day in Prague which felt a bit uneasy was the day we visited the old jewish ghetto ie. some tiny crap part of town where in former times they where forced to live (this is much older than WWII era, btw). One spin off was that grave space was very limited and therefore people where buried in stacks. This is not unique, but somehow it seemed to underline the misery that hung about the place. At the same time I'm thinking about all this I hear americans having it explained to them and squealing about how clever it was. twats.

also, I guy on a training course I had to help on was from india, working during day at McD's shit food-o-rama. The questions he got asked, in all innocence apparently, made me shrivel up with shame at our native chav thickos. questions like did you have your own elephant, cos that's how people get about isn't it? or is this you first pair of shoes/first time you've seen cars? His comical rage was great though, 'an elephant? yes! I call it Hyundai!'
