I stumbled across something I’d written a long time ago and never published. I think it’s funny enough to warrant a short series of Friday Fun posts. In this world of fake news, I’ve realized that many famous quotes are actually incorrect. I’ve corrected these quotes to properly reflect Dynamics GP or it’s predecessor Great Plains.
Since these incorrect quotes have been repeated enough that everyone believes them, this series will probably offend somebody. That’s fine, just keep it to yourself and be offended quietly. Also, consider these quotes copyrighted, since I
made dug them up. If you want them on a t-shirt, mug, or something else, that’s an option for some of the quotes. Check out the store.
Moving forward in history this week, we’re looking at a quote by the most beloved of the Teflon Presidents, Ronald Reagan.
“Mr. Gorbachev, tear up your ERP system and buy Great Plains!” – Ronald Reagan
Reagan’s speech at the Berlin wall has of course been altered to fit a political narrative, when in fact Reagan was giving Gorbachev a way out of communism with a tool that would fix his central planning problems.
