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 darkness was on the face of The Workers And they spake amongst themselves, saying It is a crock of shit, and it stinketh. And the Workers spake unto their Supervisors saying, It is a Pail of Dung and none may abide the odor thereof. And the Supervisors went unto their Managers and said unto them, It is a Container of Excrement and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it. And the Managers went unto their Directors and said, It is a Vessel of Fertilizer and none may abide its strength. And the Directors spake amongst themselves, saying to one another, It contains that which aids Plant Growth, and it is very strong. And the Directors went unto the Vice Presidents and said unto them, It promotes growth and is very powerful. And the Vice Presidents went unto the President and said unto him, This New Plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of this company, and these areas in particular. And the President looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good, and the Plan became Policy. And that is how Shit happens.
