Just fill in the blanks 

Auguste at Pandagon finds the grand philosophical allegory for modern American life:
When the “Underpants Gnome” story first came out, we all mistook it for an e-Business allegory . . .
Phase 1 - Collect Underpants
Phase 2 - ?
Phase 3 - Profit
. . . Parker and Stone didn’t just nail the Internet bust with the underpants gnomes idea. They stumbled upon a grand philosophical allegory for modern American life.
Look how this can be applied to so many other other intractable problems. Like running out of oil:
Phase 1 - Run out of oil
Phase 2 - ?
Phase 3 - Alternative energy-based society
And winning in Iraq:
Phase 1: Escalate hostilities
Phase 2: ?
Phase 3: Peace
Hey, sounds easy to me...how about:
Phase 1 - Harper Conservatives break equalization promises
Phase 2 - ?
Phase 3 - All provinces treated fairly

Phase 1 - Coastal cities flood due to climate change
Phase 2 - ?
Phase 3 - New cities built

Carry on...
