...I'm sure you've all seen this one (it's slightly cleaned up, Suitable for All Audiences)
In the Beginning was the Plan.
And then came the Assumptions.
And the Plan was without Substance, and the Assumptions without Form.
And Darkness was upon the Face of the Workers,
And they spake among 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 Dung and besides that itís rotten."
And the Supervisors went unto their Managers saying,
"It is a Container of organic Waste such that none may abide it."
And the Managers went unto their Directors, saying,
"It is a Vessel of Fertilizer and it is very strong. "
And the Directors said to their Vice-Presidents,
"It contains that which aids Plant 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 and Vigor of the Company."
And the President went to the Chairman of the Board of Directors, and said
"...and we were meticulous about obtaining Input from All Levels!"
And the Chairman of the Board saw that it was Good.
AND THE PLAN WAS IMPLEMENTED.
