The Plan: Techie's version
Note: I found this as a file in my 'to put in onstage' folder on my harddrive. I can't credit anyone becuase I dono where it came from. (Did someone send email it as an attachment and not inline?) If you know where it came from, you know who to call...

In the beginning there was the Plan
And then came the Assumptions
And the Assumptions were without form
And the Plan was without substance
And darkness was upon the face of the Techies.
And they spoke amongst themselves saying, 'It is a crock of shit and it stinketh.'
And the Techies went to the Stage Manager and said, 'It is a pile of dung, and none may abide by the odor thereof.'
And the Stage Manager went unto the Production Manager saying, 'It is a container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it.'
And the Production Manager spoke amongst the Directors saying, 'It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide by its strength.'
And the Directors went unto the Producers saying one to the other, 'It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong.'
And the Producers then went to the Backers saying unto them, 'It promotes growth and is very powerful.'
And the Backers sent forth the publicity saying unto the Public, 'This new plan will actively promote the growth and vigor of the production, with powerful effects to be felt all the way to the audience!!!'
And the Public looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good.
And the Plan became Policy.
And the Techies looked upon the Policy and saw that it was nothing but the same old shit with a new name.

And thus, shit happens
