Sh*t happens

[From Pat in the UK]

It may be old, it may even have been around since the beginnings of civilisation, but it sure has the ring of truth that makes it worth sending on each time it comes around!

The Plan.

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 upon the faces of the employees;

And they spoke among themselves, saying:
" It's a crock of shit and it stinks."

And the employees went unto their supervisors, saying:
"It's a pile of dung and none can abide by the odour thereof."

And the supervisors went unto their managers, saying:
"It's a container of excrement and it is very strong, such that none can abide it."

And the managers went unto their division heads, saying:
"It's a vessel of fertiliser and none can abide its strength."

And the div heads went unto the directors, saying:
"It contains that which aids plant growth and it is very strong."

And the directors went unto the CEO, saying:
"It promotes growth and is very powerful."

And the CEO went unto the Board, saying:
"This new plan will actively promote growth and efficiency of this organisation."

And the Board looked upon The Plan and saw that it was good,
And The Plan became the official company policy.
And that, my friends,
Is how Shit Happens.
