In the beginning there was a plan. Then came the assumptions. The plan was without substance. The assumptions were without form. Darkness was upon the face of the workers.
And they spoke amongst themselves saying: "It is a crock of shit and it stinketh!"
And the workers went unto their Supervisors and said: "It is a pail of dung and none may abide the odour 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 Managers went unto the Management Committee saying: "It is a vessel of fertilizer and none may abide its strength!"
And the Management Committee spoke amongst itself saying unto one another: "It contains that which aids plant growth and it is very strong!"
And the Management Committee gave counsel unto the VicePresidents saying unto them: "It promotes growth and it is very powerful!"
And the Vice Presidents went unto the President saying unto him: "This new plan will activily promote the growth and vigour of the company with powerful effects!"
And the President looked upon the plan and saw that it was good. And so the plan became policy.
And that's how s**t h**p**s.
This is oh so true.
