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!"

On a tour in Prague with a friend
Which was in English and German. Anyway. I laughed (not loud) during a German bit so this German woman behind me starts slagging me and all brits (obviously in German) off. Calling us ignorant and should be more considerate to other languages.

Now I do speak German so at the end I asked her in my best German If she had a good tour and asked her to repeat her comments. Her face was a picture!!!
