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 the Darkness was on the faces of the Employees.
And they spoke unto their Supervisors saying "It's a Crock of Sh*t and it Stinketh!"
And the Supervisors went unto their Department Heads and sayeth "It's a Pail of Dung, and none may abide the odour thereof."
And the Department Heads went unto their Managers, and sayeth 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 Director and sayeth "It is a Vessel of Fertilizer, and none may abide its Strength."
And the Director went unto the Vice President and sayeth "It contains that which aids Plant Growth, and it is very Strong."
And the Vice President went to the Executive Vice President and sayeth "It promoteth Growth, and it is very Powerful."
And the Executive Vice President went to the President and sayeth "This Powerful New Plan will actively promote the Growth and Efficiency of the System."
And the President looked upon the Plan and saw that it was Good.
And the Plan became Policy.
And the Policy became Law.
