I read this story about a doctor trying to get permission to do a harmless research study by giving people a simple questionnaire, and the loopholes he eventually gave up trying to jump through.
I have had some limited experience with big government bureaucracies, and his conclusion here really mirrors my thoughts:
I sometimes worry that people misunderstand the case against bureaucracy. People imagine it’s Big Business complaining about the regulations preventing them from steamrolling over everyone else.

It was close enough to the real thing that many people were left wondering just what the hell was going on, but ridiculous enough that it's downright funny. “The whole time we were thinking: ‘This isn’t even on the market yet! You guys are totally stealing this and emailing us and complaining about it,”
