Citizen's Environmental Peace Department
Today at the zoo I got the best birthday present ever. I came back to my suburban, which was parked in a compact parking spot!, and found a violation ticket under my windshield wiper. It was from the "CEPD", the Citizen's Environmental Peace Department, and it was for driving a SUV and polluting the environment. If you click on the picture you can read the whole enjoyable thing. According to the violation ticket, for my first offense I can pay the penalty by "donating 10 % of sales price of your SUV to your favorite environmental organization."
As defined for me on the back a SUV includes light trucks, mini vans and sport utility vehicles. I am so ashamed that I drive a vehicle that is large enough to hold my children and a few friends (so we can carpool). Of course if I complain and ask someone to create a green machine large enough for my family both now and future, I might get slapped with a violation for enlarging my carbon-footprint by having too many children (or any children at all).
