generalizing a bad joke

Last year, I learned a new joke:
Q: If you're an American in the kitchen, what are you in the bathroom?

A: Eur o pean!
Last night as I was half-asleep it occurred to me that this could be a representative of an entire family of jokes about placenames with similar properties. It turns out to be a little tricky, though; the only place I could think of that seemed to have any possibilities is Ukraine, and even there I couldn't come up with a joke that made any kind of sense. Can any of you do better?
