In the beginning was the Plan
And then came the Assumptions
And the assumptions were without form
And the Plan was without Substance
And darkness was upon the face of the Workers
And the workers spoke among themselves saying, "It is a crock of shit and it stinks."
And the Workers went unto their Supervisors and said,"it is a crock of dung and we cannot live with the smell."
And the Supervisors went unto their Managers saying, "it is a container of organic waste, and it is very strong, such that none may aide by it."
And the Mangers went unto their Directors saying, "it is a vessel of fertilizer and none may abide it's strength."
And the Directors spoke among themselves saying to one another, "It contains that which aids plant growth and it is very strong."
And the Directors went to the Vice Presidents, saying unto them, It promotes growth and it is very powerful."
And the Vice Presidents went to the President saying unto him, "It has very powerful effects."
And the President looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good.
And the Plan became Policy
And that is how shit happens.
