In the beginning was The Plan.
And then came The Assumptions.
And The Assumptions were without form.
And The Plan was without substance.
And a darkness came upon the faces 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 crap and we can’t stand the smell.”
And The Supervisors went unto their Managers saying “It is a container of excrement and it is very strong such that none can even stand it.”
And The Managers went unto their Directors saying “It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide by its strength.”
And The Directors spoke amongst 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 of the company with very powerful effects.”
And The President looked upon The Plan and saw that it was good.
And The Plan became Policy.
And this is how shit happens….
