Birthright citizenship

I found out the other day that, even though I was born in Australia and am therefore a citizen by birthright, due to my dad being a Brit I'm also technically a British citizen. Now I feel vaguely disturbed and unclean. I mean, I'm almost like my younger sister now, and a bigger waste of skin you'll never find.

Naturally, the first place I thought of to ask for advice to shake this terrible stigma was CG.

I have thought about applying for US citizenship to complete the trifecta, but their insistence that I file US taxes if I ever move back down under is stupid. Plus I don't need to vote because I live in California.

You don't get to help us choose between two corporate-selected candidates?

Being a U.S. citizen ain't so bad. Especially now I'm too old to get drafted. :innocent:

I was born in the U.S. and my dad is from Scotland so technically I am a dual national as well. At least I am not Australian though.

That reminds of that skit from Flight of the Concords.

Gooden targ.

I was fortunate enough to avoid selective service registration, being far too old by about one week. That kind of draft dodging makes me feel like a Republican presidential candidate. I could be the next Trump! It's gonna be yuge.

Toupée be damned, this is a 100% authentic ferret skin cap.

I think I might have just lost the influential ferret lobby vote...
