Default What would you put on yours?

Just reading an old post got me thinking about questions I routinely get asked that might be worth putting on a t-shirt, save me answering the same questions every time. I'd start with.....

No, I haven't met William, Harry or the Queen.
No, I don't know your cousin/sister in law/ex wifes brother who lives north/south/east west of somewhere you can't remember. And I don't have a clue where that is.
And, yes, I know my accent is cute.

What would you put on yours?

"I don't know, I've never been to London"
"No, Newcastle is not near to London"

Every American I've met when i've been in the US always asks me what London is like.
