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 Sappers And the Sappers spoke amongst themselves, saying, "This is a crock of shit, and it stinketh." And the Sappers went unto their Corporals and said, "It is a pail of dung, and we can't live with the smell". And the Corporals went unto their Staff Sergeant, saying, "It is a container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide it". And the Staff Sergeant went unto the Sergeant Major, saying, "It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength". And the Sergeant Major spoke to the 2ic, saying, "It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong". And the 2ic went unto the OC, saying, "It promotes growth, and it is very powerful". And the OC went to the CO, saying, "This new plan will actively promote the growth and vigor of the Regiment with very powerful effects". And the CO looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good. And the Plan became Policy.
