The Plan

In the beginning was the Plan.

And then came the Ass-ump-tions.

And the Assumptions were without form.

And the Plan was without substance.

And darkness fell upon the faces of the Workers.

And they spoke amongst themselves saying "It is a crock of stuff, and it

And the workers went to their Supervisors said, "It is a pail of dung and
we can't live with the smell."

And the Supervisors went to their Superintendents and saying "It is a
container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide
by it."

And the Superintendents went to their Commanders saying "It is a vessel
of fertilizer and none may abide its strength."

And the Commanders spoke among themselves saying to one another "It
contains that which aids growth, and it is very strong."

And the Commanders went to their Generals saying unto them,"It promotes
growth and it is very powerful."

And the Generals went to the Great Chief of Staff a\saying unto him,
"This new Plan will actively promote the growth and vigor of the company,
with powerful effects."

And The Great Chief looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good.

And the Plan became Policy.

And that's how stuff happens.
