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!"

Houston, Texas
Asked by concierge, "Hey man, I really dig your accent, where are you from?"

I'm from England.

I explained to him I was from Japan..

"Man, you speak really good american!"

(note the lowercase 'a' - I don't recognise 'american' as a language)

"No I don't,", I explained, "I am speaking Japanese, my mobile phone translates it to whatever language I choose, In real-time"

I left him in awe.
