Scare the kids: You will die as a midlevel Washington bureaucrat ...

The 4 min 4 sec video below So You Want To Be A Diplomat was created by Georgetown's School of Foreign Service students, Morgan McDaniel, Amanda Lanzillo, and Mike Madoff and posted in xtranormal. H/T to Two Crabs. We got our three laughs for the day!

What they forgot was to include the view from the Brits like -- "unthinkable” for a diplomat to “produce babies." How about “the clever woman would not be liked and the attractive woman would not be taken seriously." Also, "the trouble with you women is that you will go and get married.”

Read Alex Barker's piece, Britain’s first female diplomats in FT magazine. It is quite a romp down diplomatic history.
