Carnation Milk Humor

A little humor to start the day from my good buddy, Jack Corbett.

65 Years  Ago.   This is PRICELESS  ...
A little old lady from Wisconsin had worked in and around her family dairy farms 
since she was old enough to walk, with hours of hard work and little compensation.
When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores in the 1940s, she 
read an advertisement offering $5,000 for the best slogan.
The producers wanted a rhyme beginning  with 'Carnation Milk is best of all.'
She thought to herself, I know everything there is to know about milk and dairy 
farms. I can do this!
She sent in her entry, and several weeks later a black car pulled up in front of 
her house.
A large man got out, knocked on her door, and said, "Ma'am, the president of 
Carnation milk absolutely LOVED your entry.  So much, in fact, that we are here 
to award you $1,000, even though we will not be able to use it for our advertisements!"
He did, however, have one printed up to hang on his office wall.

Here it is - true story!

  1. Bah. There have been literally millions of U.S. servicemen over the past half-a-century to whom that advertising slogan would (and probably did) appeal, especially in the field and other forward areas without refrigeration where coffee drinkers wanted their java "white."

    "Where's the canned cow? Oh, yeah. You want some?"
