'A smiling Japanese person is not necessarily happy'

Much merriment has resulted from Visit Britain's new initiative purportedly designed to prepare the nation's businesses for the expected onslaught of foreign tourists during the 2012 Olympics. The Daily Mash was quickly into the satirical fray with 'Try not to punch tourists, Britain reminded'.

However, the original document is arguably even more hilarious. Highlights from amongst the tips include not telling an Arab what to do, not calling a Canadian an American, being especially careful how to pour wine for those delicate Argies, and not mentioning the 1845-6 war to Mexicans.

On the subject of 'don't mention ze vor' what happened to the Germans?
