master control program
a "character" in the movie TRON
the MCP steals other programs, and extends itself using their knowledge.
Master Control Program: You're in trouble, program. Why don't you make it easy on yourself. Who's your user?
CLU: Forget it, mister high-and-mighty Master Control! You're not going to make me talk!
Master Control Program: Suit yourself.
Evil organization determined to ruin the lives of as many public school students as possible, while giving them ridiculous amounts of vacation due to non-existant inclement weather to absorb their brain-washing about standardized testing, drugs, and how much more important college really is than it is in reality. The last of that list will only make sense to those subjected to MCPS' tyranny. Poor schools are remodeled, rather than restaffed. Their headquarters are located in Rockville

MoCo student: At my school, we're all frickin geinuses.
Another MoCo Student: Yeah, but there's never any toilet paper.
1st MoCo Student: That's because all the other smart kids have been using it as scrap paper in AP Calc.
MCPS SYSTEM OF LOGIC
day 1 of an ice storm:
MCPS Official #1: Should we close? the roads might get slippery later.
MCPS Official #2: Nah, all those hundreds of thousands of kids who ride the already overcrowded buses will be just fine. Here, why don't we be the only county in the area to actually SAY we're opening on time. I'm from MoCO. I'm rich. therefore, i am right.
TWO HOURS LATER
Official #2: Ok, so maybe I was wrong.
Official #1: Should we close?
Official #2: Yeah, i guess its still pretty icy. oh, and its still snowing.
Official #1: Should we call the plows?
Official #2: No. its too dangerous for snow plows to be plowing snow right now. and i'm from MoCo. and I'm rich. so obviously, i'm right about this.
LATER THAT AFTERNOON
Official #1: Hey the sun's coming out! Maybe we should call the plows now.
Official #2: How many times do i have to tell you this? I'm from Montgomery County! THEREFORE, i am smart and right. The snow will melt. but just in case, close the schools for tomorrow.
Official #1: ok, but the snow won't melt. Its below freezing.
Official #2: DO YOU WANT TO GET FIRED?
Official #1: NEVER! I wouldn't be able to pay for my $2 million mansion in Potomac! what would i do?
