Q: Were you present when your picture was taken?
I quote this from Hoverfly's old post but the following is no joke.
My wife has dual nationality, French and Belgian and she needed a certificate of French nationality which meant a trip to the local court. Being born Belgian she had to justify how she obtained French nationality (birth, scolarity, and residence until she was 21). The school was easy enough but the rest was painful. Amongst other things she had two kids by a previous marriage so she presented their birth certificates to show they were born in France. The greffier then asked, "Were you in France at the time?" We both nearly fell through the floor!
