The Disorganization Nation

Leaders at Mt. Willis have been in heated talks with nearby Disorganization Nation for eight weeks now.

It began in late December with several black-ops missions into Mt. Willis offices. Mt. Willis security forces were suffering under a post-holiday malaise and let down their collective guard for a few days. It gave the DNZ (Disorganization Nation Zealots) a perfect opprtunity to start a campaign of propoganda, misinformation, and general ugliness.

Within two weeks, the DNZ had scattered tax information, grocery lists, and cleaning decisions all over the mountain. Mt. Willis’ chief security canine (Codename: Scoop) became confused and demoralized. Her late night secuirty patrols became less a life’s mission and more a matter of tired habit. She found her only solace in collecting scattered socks from around the house and despositing them in a pile near her tired leaders’ heads. There is nothing more sad than a secuirty canine with no purpose.

By late January, the DNZ’s front lines had set up camp in the formerly secure Mt. Willis stronghold. Grocery lists seemed to be written on the back of W-2 tax forms. Cleaning supplies were hidden behind the cumin and tumeric in the spice cabinet. DNZ children were making paper airplanes out of checkbook ledgers. Disorganization Nation bombers were dropping propoganda pamphlets on the Mt. Willis children. The pamphlets featured a happy world where an organized lifestyle is a work of the devil.

During that time, leaders from both soveriegn nations began talks under a large tree on the Mt. Willis border. Local media have referred to the talks as the SumGum Summit. The DNZ insists that it only invades nations that really want to be overtaken. It insists that if Mt. Willis leaders truly want to raise a flag of organization, it only has to try.

Mt. Willis leaders are suspicious. They find themselves under a spell of misplaced paperwork and unwashed dishes. A formerly happy and organized place is floundering in purposeless disorganization.

There is late word this week, however, that Mt. Willis has dispatched an envoy to the border. Well-placed sources report that the envoy–known only as Purposeful Drunk–intends to call for a truce. The same sources report that PD intends to spend the greater part of Friday night locked in disorganized inebriation, then wake on Saturday with a patented sense of purpose.

There is a widespread belief that the Mt. Willis flag will fly alone on the mountain by Sunday.
