Too Pink

The Lefties said she wasn’t blue enough, the Righties said she wasn’t red enough, some girl singer said she was infringing on her “PINK” trademark, and the Feds said she needed an environmental impact statement and Federal permit or she had to quit growing and spreading pollen on Federal land . . .

Tax Avoidance

Stuart paid his taxes with only a minimum of grumbling; he understood the government needed to be funded, but when the Environmental Protection Agency slapped a new tax on all fresh fish (and not even just the endangered ones), he knew he was going to be guilty of tax avoidance . . . .  David, Sf.G.
