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!"

Re: Overground mines
Not as silly as it sounds :-

A recent addition to the 'Black County Living Museum' (Dudley - W Mids) is a coal mine which was built by constructing a mine shaft above ground on a *slight* incline and then covering the whole thing with earth. Visitors suffering from claustrophobia are taken to one of the signposted emergency exits which open out into the open air.
