    A lady from Missoula, Montana who was a tree hugger and an
    anti-hunter, purchased a piece of timberland. There was a large tree
    on one of the highest points in the tract. She wanted to get a good view of
    the natural splendor of her land so she started to climb the big tree.
    As she neared the top, she encountered a spotted owl that attacked her.

    In her haste to escape, the lady slid down the tree to the ground
    and got many splinters in her crotch.

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

    She sat and waited for three hours before the doctor reappeared. The angry lady demanded, "What took you so long?" He smiled and then told her, "Well, I had to get permits from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management before I could remove old-growth timber from a recreational area and I'm sorry, but they all turned me down."
