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!"

worked for customs & excise in the days when they wore blue suits and hats with scrambled eggs on and stood looking forboding at the borders to our great sceptred isle and crims caved in and gave themselves up at the mere sight of the excisemen. He was making his way down the steps of a hotel, in uniform, when along comes a USAnian.

"Commissionaire... take my bags"

"I'm not a commissionaire, I work on Her Majesty's service"

"Jeez Mabel, come here! This guy knows the Queen!"
