- In the beginning was The Plan
- And then came the assumptions
- And the assumptions were without form
- And the plan was without substance
- And the darkness was upon the face of the workers
And they spoke amongst themselves. Say NO
- "It is a crock of shit and it stinketh."
And the workers went unto their supervisors and sayeth
- "It is a pail of dung and none may abide the odor thereof."
And the supervisors 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 directors and sayeth
- "It is a vessel of fertilizer and none may abide 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 unto the vice-presidents and sayeth unto them
- "It promotes growth and is very powerful."
And the vice-presidents went unto the president and sayeth unto him
- "This new plan will actively promote the growth and effeciency of the company and these areas in particuliar."
- And the President looked upon the plan,
And said that it was a good, and the plan became policy.
