26 Page Recipe for Brownies? Wonder how many pages for a Hang Nail???

Interesting article on the result of bureaucratic rule-making...I wonder how many pages it will take to outline  taking care of a hang-nail when health care rules are established...

From NPR: A 26-Page Brownie Recipe? Only At The Pentagon
""Baking brownies is one of the easiest things you can do in the kitchen. Most recipes have fewer than 10 ingredients, and the instructions are simple — measure, mix, bake. Well, not if you're baking for the Pentagon. The latest viral sensation to hit the Internet is a 26-page document laying out all the rules and regulations you need to follow to bake appropriate treats for our men and women in uniform.
Take Section 3.2.6 of the recipe, for example, which covers eggs. It reads, in part, "Whole eggs may be liquid or frozen and shall have been processed and labeled in accordance with the Regulations Governing the Inspection of Eggs and Egg Products (7 CFR Part 59)."
You get the picture....""
