Spider-Man from this summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man (also known as Andrew Garfield, also known as Eduardo Saverin from The Social Network, also known as Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook co-founder) has renounced his American citizenship.
Eduardo Saverin, the billionaire co- founder of Facebook Inc. (FB) (FB), renounced his U.S. citizenship before an initial public offering that values the social network at as much as $96 billion, a move that may reduce his tax bill.
Upon reading this news, I had a similar epiphany as Zuckerberg as depicted in The Social Network. In the film there is a scene where a friend of Zuckerberg asks him if a girl is single. This gives him the idea of creating a “relationship status,” so horny college co-eds would know who is (relatively) safe to bang.
With Saverin’s renouncement, this begs the addition of “citizenship status” to keep up with the ever-changing citizenships of the world’s billionaires. But as Americans uncomfortable with all things foreign, this allows us to keep track of true patriots. From now on, it will be easier for you to ensure you have a 100% American made friend list.
Toby Keith and Mike Rowe would be proud.
