It's Italian Night in Woodley Park!

Overheard outside Open City, where the daily specials were... well, you'll see.
Woman: "No, no, cuh-PRAY-zay."
Man: "OK, OK. Cuh-PRAY-zay. Got it.
Woman: "And gnocchi."
Man: "Gnocchi. Isn't that some character in Japanese manga?"
Please note that, in this case, "gnocchi" was pronounced "guh-NOCK-ee." And no, I don't think he was being ironic, although I'll give him the manga joke. Because I'm gracious.

As hellish as their presence usually is, tourists can also be such gems, as demonstrated. How much do you want to bet that these ones were Midwesterners?
