This comic is my twisted way of congratulating (and kidding) my wife on attaining dual-citizenship. I’m not quite sure why she wanted to become Canadian, but it probably has something to do with having beaver blood in her veins. (Both of her parents were Canucks.)
So break out the maple syrup and congrats to Shelagh!
WOMAN: You’re from Canada? Cool! That’s up by the border isn’t it…near Mexico?
Congratulations to Shelagh on her dual citizenship! But whatever are you two going to do when war breaks out between the two countries?
Congrats to Shelagh! I know someone who has her Indian citizenship, US citizenship, and Canadian citizenship. She was born in India, came to the US for school, work, and first marriage, and now lives up in Canada for her second. We kid her and tell her most people just collect comic books or porcelain figurines.
Rodney, when war breaks out, we’ll move to Australia. I think it’s just off the coast of California and we can dog paddle over there.
Eilis, I think tri-citizenship sounds cool. And your friend has an interesting combo. Shelagh actually qualifies for Irish citizenship too. (Her dad was Irish; grew up in Scotland, then immigrated to Canada where he got his citizenship; and eventually moved to the U.S. and became a citizen.) Shelagh’s thinking of going for Irish citizenship as well.
Oops. Clarification time. Shelagh’s dad was actually born in Scotland. His dad (Shelagh grandfather) was born in Ireland. But that’s enough to qualify her for Irish citizenship if she wants to apply. In fact, the Irish government is even offering citizenship now to great-grandchildren of Irish citizens. So my daughter could become Irish as well.
