Technical tongue twisters anyone?

The _allergic_ thread reminded me of this tongue-punishing paragraph:

_No property is to be removed from the [name removed] premises without an
appropriate property pass or resident contractor clearance permit, properly
prepared, approved, and processed as set forth herein. A properly approved
property pass or clearance permit ..._

The author wouldn't let us make any changes to this paragraph--even when we
pointed out its particularly pervasive problem. 8)

My opinions are (most likely) only my own.
