A avid environmentalist from Sydney traveled to protest the clearing of old growth forests in a timber town. Wanted a viewing platform for her protest she climbed the largest tree but near the top was startled by a squawking kookaburra. Loosing her grip she slid down the tree getting many sharp splinters in her privates. In a lot of pain, she rushed to the nearest medical clinic. She explained to the doctor 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 two hours before the doctor reappeared. Being angry she demanded, "What took you so long?"
He smiled and said, "Well, I had to get permits from the Environmental Protection Agency before I could remove old-growth timber from a recreational area. I'm sorry, but they turned me down." LOL!
