    Default An Oldie but a Goodie

    Just received this in an email --- if only it was true .......

    A woman from Sydney who was a tree hugging, vegetarian and anti-hunter purchased a piece of native bushland in northern NSW . There was a large gum tree on one of the highest points in her property. She wanted a good view of the natural splendor of her land so she started to climb the big gum.

    As she neared the top she encountered a koala that attacked her. In her haste to escape, the woman slid down the tree to the ground and got many splinters in her crotch.

    In considerable pain, she hurried to a local ER to see a doctor. She told him she was an environmentalist, vegetarian, and an anti-hunter and how she came to get all the splinters. The doctor listened to her story with great patience and then told her to go wait in the examining room and he would see if he could help her.

    She sat and waited three hours before the doctor re-appeared.The angry woman demanded, "What took you so long?"

    He smiled and then told her, "Well, I had to get permits from the Environmental Protection Agency, Native Vegetation, Parks and Wildlife service, and the Bureau of Land Management before I could remove old-growth timber from a 'recreational area' so close to a Waste Treatment Facility.

    And I'm sorry, they turned you down.

    And I just choked on my morning coffee reading the punchline.

    An Oldie but a Goodie.

    It came to mind when the Victorian Government announced they were phasing out Old Growth timber harvesting.

    It is indeed an oldie. If my recollection is correct, it was the first joke posted on the "Woodies Jokes" forum not long after these forums started. I can't remember where I heard it, but thought it deserved a wider airing.
