- Come to my place and help figure out how best to incorporate the phrase 'turgid state' into our adult regulated use code.

- You've got 'nonconforming' written all over, but in your case I can feel a use variance coming on.

Something about a 'special use permit' but I'm not going down that road. Not gonna do it. Would be prudent. Also dandy & LP would disapprove.

Yeah, well the cat's away....it's Lent so resident den mother LP is out of commission for the next several weeks, and for the record, I don't think it's actually possible to offend dandy.

But, yeah, that'd be in as poor taste as offering to violate a rear setback.

Do I need a permit to erect a tower in your jurisdiction?

Sorry Dandy, just trying to offend.

Why don't I draw up a plat to subdivide those large tracts you got, missy?

Your architectural projections are encroaching well into the required front yard setback, but I'm perfectly willing to grant a variance in your case.

Do you want to go somewhere quiet and discuss the ins and outs of sprawl?

This must be pedestrian oriented development because you walked into my heart

Are you a fan of parking in the driveway, or putting it in the garage?

How about you come back to my hotel for some public engagement... and we will take the "L" out....

Ahhh! I have a good one but I am a teensy bit too much of a lady to post it...


No comments about the girl in the red dress?

If cruising for conference hook-ups is your kind of thing, look to September and consider attending the pharma sales conference in Massachusetts. Their current conference format is interactive so as to eliminate “death-by-PowerPoint”.
