Dam Beavers...

Bureaucratic nonsense at it's finest:

http://www.snopes.com/humor/letters/dammed.asp

Basically, the state of Michigan threatened to fine some local beavers $10,000 per day for their illegal dam construction. The guy who owned the land that their dam was built on responded with a great "dam letter" and the rest is internet history.

Someone posted a version of it and out of curiosity I tracked it back to Snopes to learn that it was, in fact, a TRUE story. That'll teach me to doubt the government's capacity for sheer stupidity..
