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!"

Having lived in Paris
for about 9 months, I have heard a lot of stupid things from tourists. However, the worst conversation was overheard by a friend of mine.

He was standing in line for the Musee d'Orsay and nearby were standing some American women, waiting for some friends. These friends arrived and promptly started talking about what they had seen earlier. They had been to the Louvre. They mentioned they had seen the painting of "the smiling lady" and that it was so beautiful.

They were of course talking of the Mona Lisa, however, they kept calling it the "smiling lady". And even mentioned they couldn't remember the name of the painting.
