Re: Who is W.G.B. ??
This has probably been posted before but as a new member of this forum i was wondering who is W.G.B. that appears so regularly on my desk calendar with its daily quotes? His quotations are usually humorous but pretty well on the mark .
I think it's WGP, not B.
W.G.P. is a gentleman by the name of Willam George Plunkett who worked for the Collins company for nearly 40 years.
He worked in the print room and oversaw the production of the refills. Over
the years he wrote his own quotes and they started appearing in the product.
He died in 1975 and Collins have continued the tradition of including some
of his quotes on a Wednesday. (Thanks to Rodney Quinn for this information).
A wishbone has never taken the place of a backbone. -- W.G.P.
One trouble with political jokes is that they sometimes get elected. -- W.G.P.
People's minds are like parachutes. To function properly they must first be open. -- W.G.P.
