In the beginning was the Agreement. And then came the HVCC.
And the HVCC was without form. And the Agreement was without substance.
And darkness was upon the face of the Appraisers. And they spoke among themselves, saying "It is a crock of shit and it stinketh."
And the Appraisers went unto their Brokers and said, "It is a pail of dung and none may abide the odor thereof."
And the Brokers went unto their Investors, saying, "It is a container of excrement and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it."
And the Investors went unto their Legislators, saying, "It is a vessel of fertilizer and none may abide its strength."
And the Legislators spoke amongst themselves, saying one to another, "It contains that which aids plant growth and it is very strong."
And the Legislators went unto the Vice President, saying, "It promotes growth and it is very powerful."
And the Vice-President went unto the President, saying, “This new Agreement will actively promote the growth and vigor of the country with powerful effects."
And the President looked upon the Agreement and saw that it was good.
And the Agreement became Policy.
This is how Shit Happens.
