I think it's funny that anyone thinks it's funny...so I finally got there...sort of Very Happy
The "never been out of the country" Mexicans in my family don't understand the "joke" as something gets lost in the translation.
Does Pakistan allow foreign plated cars....especially from South Dakota? ....an alternative?

it wouldn't pay to transport them. But maybe "a buy a wreck" from Afganistan. ( that is a play on "Rent a wreck")

The refugee/immigrant issue raises an interesting question...

"How many expat Brits' in Mexico, would have qualified to immigrate to Britain if they had not been born there?"

Well, if they did it before the early sixties they would have had no problem as Britain had no restrictions on Commonwealth Citizens. But then a they received jet plane loads from India, Pakistan, the West Indies daily and many other countries they introduced immigration requirements.

It depends on where they would have been born. The colonies?....sure OK.
Pakistan?....a shoo in. London only accepts Pakistanis because they are paisanos. Very Happy

I wouldn't go back to live in England if you paid me...well :), maybe. The weather there is worse than in Canada...at least in Canada you get six weeks of summer or road construction (whichever you prefer).
When we were looking for the "where" of retiring, I did send for notarized copies of my birth certificate just in case I wanted to apply for a British Passport. I thought it would be fun tripping around E.U.....I must have been nuts even contemplating it.

I have both Mexican and Irish passports and I get more respect around the EU with the Mexican passport. lol!

Now if I wanted to work (heaven forbid) somewhere over there, I'd go Irish.
The worst thing about being Irish is...The English never let you forget it. Very Happy

I had an Irish drivers license sent to me in the mail (without applying for one) and I have a Canadian passport.

Britain and Canada are always looking for skilled foreign workers with qualifications.
