Reminds me of a Michigan refugee I worked with years ago.

He was a nice enough fellow, willing to learn about the local cuisine, so we took him out to lunch at a southern-style family diner one day.
We had coached him about some menu items beforehand, and he made it through the chicken-fried steak, black-eyed peas, and cornbread just fine.
But when it came time for dessert, he gave the waitress his biggest grin and said, "I'd like an RC Cola and a piece of your moon pie.".

Maybe it was his accent that gave him away.
