Corps Diplomatique - The Diplomatic Corps

Someone make me an Ambassador :-)

Now this is a job I would love, being a diplomat. Maybe I would not have the patience for it though.

Cuz the world gets me down sometimes.

Diplomats. What a cushy life that is. Getting driven around in a limousine, people waiting on you hand and foot.

Did you know? They even get special licence plates on their cars so they don't need to pay parking tickets like us mere mortals.

They get paid well too, $100,000 a year to start. Not bad work if you can get it.

Plus. Let's not forget diplomatic immunity. Yes, good old diplomatic immunty. That means if they commit a serious crime, they don't go to jail like the rest of us. They just get expelled from the country as "persona non grata"

The "Vienna Convention 1961 on Diplomatic Relations" ensures that they don't face trail.

The police cannot search them, cannot search their homes and offices. Looks like they have got it made in every way. I guess with all this power and a bucket full of perks, getting a leggy trophy wife is a doddle too.

Of course, there is a way to become a diplomat and all the rights and privileges without the inconvenience of going to university and studying diplomacy.

Simply buy a diplomatic appointment with diplomatic passport, diplomatic drivers license, diplomatic immunity and diplomatic email via

I would if I had the money, but sadly I don't.

Oh world, why are you so cruel to me!
