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!"

Bollocks to America vs UK
Try East London vs Home Counties...

I was in the 24 hour bagel place on Brick Lane - in the East End of London for those that don't know. I had my lovely posh girlfriend of the time with me.

"Could I have a I diet Coke, please?" she asks in her plummiest tones.

The guys behind the counter looked at her as if she'd started speaking Klingon.

After a few more attempts during which she got more embarrassed, and the whole place looked on in amusement, I leant over and said "She'll 'ave a diet coke, mate"

Drink appears instantly to light applause from gathered customers.
