Urban Planning Humour

Many times, people ask me what I do, and I tell them I am an urban planner. Puzzled by what that means, I tell them it is sort of like playing SimCity, but in real life. Unfortunately, we can't use cheat codes in real life (remember the LIM code, anyone)?

Every now and again, in real life, you run into frustrations in getting approvals for things, whether it is from the local municipality, conservation authorities, other agencies, etc. If only things were as easy as what is depicted in the below comic. I know all you other planners will get a chuckle out of this one.

LIM code? Is that some old-fangled SimCity Classic code I never used?

And why am I posting from work? ACK!

It was the code to get unlimited money.
