I just had a long meeting with Sir Butt about an advertisement I saw when I turned on my computer this morning.  I was unable to print the actual ad that I saw, but I was able to find this:

Fwd: Find Common Ground at ArcGIS Online
… From: Esri <newsletter@…> Date: 21 August 2012 13:16 Subject: Find Common Ground at ArcGIS Online To: Ben de Vries <bendevries1968@…> ** …

You are probably wondering why on earth would Bears Butt care about an advertisement like this one.  I’ll tell you why.  Read carefully that first line:

“Find Common Ground…”

And then if you have not read about Sir Butt, you need to stop reading this right now and go to the Sir Butt category on this site and catch up on a few things.  One being that Sir Butt’s land is called “Common Ground”!

Now I know because I have used some of ESRI companies software that it is very powerful and almost the exclusive programs used in the Geographical Information world of GIS.  The company has a huge team of experts constantly making their software bigger, better, faster, cheaper etcetterer and millions of people use it for their GIS purposes.

But, to find “Common Ground” is it even possible?

Therefore I called for an emergency meeting with Sir Butt to discuss this issue.

Sir Butt of course was not familiar with GIS nor ESRI or anything about such as that.  He said that of course you could find Common Ground.  Just close your eyes and there you are!  Surrounded by the beauty of it and the greenness of it all.  Simple!  He went on to say that the need for some such ESRI or GIS is hogwash and absurd, UN-necessary and a total waste of time.

He went on to say that he believes this ESRI is a dragon of the worst kind and that perhaps he needed to call upon Cash to relieve the world of it.  He said that he will be ready in an instant the moment ESRI steps foot on Common Ground, if indeed ESRI does in fact find Common Ground, and he will dash it to bits and have Something stomp the remaining parts into the ground around him.

I must say Sir Butt is very livid over this information.  I thought for a moment that he was going to take Cash out of His Account and start swinging it about.  He held his composure quite well, but made no bones about the fact that he did not like the sounds of some ESRI finding Common Ground.

He then excused himself as he was running a powerful dry and needed to quench his thirst down at the local tavern.

And so I report to you that if you too see the ESRI ad about Finding Common Ground, rest yourself assured that if in fact ESRI does trip over Common Ground and finds itself there that Sir Butt will make short work of it and it will not exist there.
