    NIMBY

    Don't you put that there
    The land should stay open space
    But I won't buy it

    You can't have it both ways

    I want low taxes
    I oppose development
    I am a moron

    Ode to Tranplanner (me)

    Is he a Planner?
    Or is he an Engineer?
    Despised by both now.

    Thanks bturk

    I would like to thank bturk for startiing this contest. I am sure that everyone who passes by my office is wondering why I am talking to myself and counting syllables with my fingers.

    Ok, I've actually printed some of these out and put them on my cork board for the enjoyment of all who comes into my office. Excellent idea Bturk.

    Trailer dwellers fight
    that new apartment building
    Don't want "those people"

    Trade dress

    to expand on dan's theme...

    That's a deal breaker!
    No truck docks next to the houses?
    We'll take Lowe's elsewhere!

    DNR

    Ditch relocation.
    A water of the US.
    You need a permit.

    Ditch relocation.
    Restore the natural stream.
    But it was man-made!

    Need to fill wetland
    Created three years ago.
    Why is this so hard?

    New jobs and taxes
    Helping the city to grow
    Mean nothing to them.

    Avoid and minimize.
    Done, now fill and compensate?
    Mitigation sucks!

    We made this wetland.
    Haven't we proven ourselves?
    DNR is dogmatic.

    Did I say that out loud?

    Would be nice to say
    to applicant what you think:
    "GO POUND SAND, F-CKTARD!"
