What goes up must pun down

Cheeky farmer Robert Fidler has been ordered to tear down his extravagant self-built castle in Surrey. Harsh, you may think, but not when you realise that he hid the mock-Tudor monstrosity behind 40ft hay bales for four years in an attempt to cheat the local planning department.

You see, the rules state that if no one objects to a new building after four years, you can apply for a 'certificate of lawfulness'. But obviously this is only the case if people actually know the building exists...oops!

Another nice (but rather sad) pun from Snowmail:

FIDLER WITHOUT A ROOF

My pun:

PLANNING PER-MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE
