Heard in Cape Town, South Africa:

N1234A (someone with an American Accent) :
"Cape Town, uh is that going to be the ILS Yankee or Zulu for Runway 19?"

Someone Else (not a controller, but someone with a South African accent) :
"It must be the ILS Zulu. Yankees are in America, but Zulus live here in Africa."

The controller and pilot from N1234A both laughed.
