I did a walking tour in Berlin. Someone asked the guide "what's the worst question you have been asked?" He said, well, this guy from Australia, after the 3 hour tour was finished, asked "Ok, so how did Hitler get here from Australia?" he hesitated and said, "Hitler was from AUSTRIA." The dude looked confused and said, "Yeah, so am I, so I'm wondering why he came all the way to Europe to do all the things he did." The tour guide said he almost felt bad but had to be honest. "AUS-TRAIL-A is the county you are from, AUS-TREE-A is a European country just next to Germany."
Fiance messaged me last week one of her geography students asked "what state is North America in?"
