Well it's a kind of joke but it's heavily laden with material intended to discredit the green movement - the reference to designer shorts for example - and following on from your vocal disapproval of a greens supporter commiting the heinous crime of using an American spelling on list - which happens to be closer to etymological origins of the word than the badly transliterated English spelling - comes across as a politcal attack. A token tawny frogmouth hardly makes this suitable material for birding-aus.

Please cease and desist from posting this politcal, non-birding material to the list.

I thought the joke below might make some of you smile.  This is from a
(non-birding, non-greenie) friend.

The head Greenie Tree Hugging Lady Activist, who was responsible for getting horses banned from National Parks & State Forests, was climbing a big tree to have a look out over the forestry when a Tawny Frogmouth attacked her for
invading its nesting site.

In a panic to make her escape, she slid down the tree, getting many
splinters in the crotch of her designer shorts.

In considerable pain she rushed to the nearest doctor, told him she was an
environmentalist and how she got all the splinters.

The doctor listened with great patience and then told her to go into the examining room and he would see if he could help her. She waited for three
hours before the doctor reappeared.

The angry woman demanded: "What took you so long?"

He smiled and then told her: "Well, I had to get permits from the
Environmental Protection Agency, the Forestry Service, National Parks and Wildlife Service, Rural Fire Service, and Conservation and Land Management before I could remove old growth timber from a recreational area..... And I
am sorry but they turned me down."
