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!"

Not quite a tourist message, but amused me none the less
Went to Manchester Uni, and the girl in the next room to me was from Croydon. She spent the first two weeks convinced that she was in Scotland, as "you surely can't drive this far north and still be in England".

Bless, it's not just Americans who don't get British geography, our own Southeners can get it very wrong too.

PS The girl in question was studying (yup, you guessed it) Geography.
