In the beginning was the Plan,
and then came the assumptions,
and the assumptions were without form,
and the plan was completely without substance;
and the darkness was upon the face of the employees, and they spoke amongst themselves, saying: "It is a crock of shit and it stinks!"
and the employees went unto their supervisors, saying, "It is a pail of dung and none may abide the odor thereof."
and the supervisors went unto their managers, saying, "It is a container of excrement and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it."
and the manager's went unto their division managers, saying, "It is a vassal of fertilizer and none may abide it's strength."
and the division manager's went unto their region managers, saying,
"It contains that which aids plant growth and it is very strong."
and the region managers went unto the general manager, saying,
"It promotes growth and it is very powerful."
and the general manager went unto the board, saying, "This plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of this organization!"
and the board looked upon the plan and thought it was good, and the plan became POLICY!
where upon, this is how shit happens.
