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!"

A reverse of what you asked for, but...
Whilst away in one of the states of America I was happily being introduced to a good many new and interesting people. This was all fine and good, until I met one fine lass:

"Meet Bob - he's from England!"
"Oh wow - so like, do you speak English there?"
To which I carefully replied:
"Yes... we speak Eng-lish... in Eng-land."
