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!"

We have lots of German people where I work - most of them are top people, and contrary to popular opinion, they can be taught the finer points of the British sense of humour.

We had one very "special" German chap with us for a year though. Round about Remembrance Day, he asked why we all wear poppies. I explained to him that it's to commemorate those who died in the first and second world wars, and I asked if they had anything similar in Germany.

His answer? "No, Germany has not been in any wars" Erm, hello?? What do they teach them over there??!!
