Natural-Born Citizens: the Joke
Ok, so I don’t normally read email forwards. I’m not sure why, but after I spent a great chunk of my time in high school reading, forwarding and deleting most of them, I decided they weren’t really my thing. So they sit in my inbox, taking up precious space and taunting me with their many FWD: FWD: FWD:s in front of the subject.
This forward was different though. Short, sweet, and to the point. Not dirty or crude, but genuinely hilarious. It was too funny to not pass along. (Plus I’ve been failing at blogging lately, so I figured I’d try to make you laugh to get back in your good graces!)
Here’s how it was sent to me. Enjoy:
You, who worry about democrats versus republicans–relax, here is our real problem. In a Florida State University classroom, they were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States. It was pretty simple. The candidate must be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age.
However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen. In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president. The class was taking it in and letting her rant, and not many jaws hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating “What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?”
Yep, these are the same kinds of 18-year-olds that are now voting in our elections!
