    I know this entire topic is not really funny but ...

    now they can't be laminated because of terrorists or something.
    is pretty amusing.

    My 80 year old mother lost her purse a couple years ago.  We discovered (to our horror) that she had been carrying EVERYTHING in it, including her birth certificate, social security card and state ID (she doesn't drive).  It took a few months, but we eventually got everything replaced.  A few weeks later, she FOUND the missing purse.  Now we have duplicates of everything (stored in a super-secret off-site location).

    We really just lucked out that the local DMV didn't ask for any ID when replacing her lost state ID card. I just sort of kept talking, and the clerk just printed a new card (oh ... and it's laminated ... )  Thankfully, her county of birth had their records on-line, and we could actually order a new official birth certificate on-line.
