This is also used sometimes as an explanation for ChaoticNeutral or ChaoticStupid actions. Contrast IDidWhatIHadToDo, which does the same as in this case, but for LawfulNeutral or LawfulStupid actions and their moral, rather than strategical, consequences. Often goes hand in hand with AlcoholInducedIdiocy for obvious reasons. If the plan somehow still ''works'' -- and is stated or implied to work not despite but ''because of'' how ridiculous it seems -- that's RefugeInAudacity and/or CrazyEnoughToWork.
