In the begining was the Plan.
And then came the Assumptions.
And the Assumtions were without form.
And the Plan was without substance.
And darkness was upon the face of the workers.
And they spoke amongst themselves saying, "It is a crock of shit, and it stinks."
And the workers went unto their supervisors and said, "It is a pail 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 abide by it."
And the managers went unto their directors saying, "It is a vesel of fertilizer, and none may abide by its 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, "This new plan will actively promote the growth and vigor of the company with powerful affects."
And the president looked upon the plan and saw that it was good.
Then the plan became policy.
And this is how SHIT happens!
