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!"

Us being the Tourists visiting the US...
My family were all out shopping when the checkout guy asked us if we were English. I replied, "No, we're Welsh."

Imagine my horror when he said "Well that's part of England isn't it."

Apparently the lesser educated Yanks are taught England is the big island, Ireland is the little island, Scotland is nowhere geographical, and Wales is a county of England.

Oh, and Welsh language is a dialect of English.
