What, more bureaucracy?  As a bureaucrat, I must object, you are
diluting my power by these schemes.  Rather than be official
(officious?) let us find a Vendor of Forgotten Supplies, a Bazzar of the
Bizarre , as it were, to provide these services for fee.  Such a scheme
might fatten a merchantile purse, and we bureaucrats would profit from
the taxes.  (A satirical, practical response.)
