    Carnation Milk (Priceless!)

    Carnation Milk 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 approximately 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 all 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 man got out and said, 'Carnation' LOVED your entry so much! We are here to award you $2,000 even though we will not be able to use it!'

    Here is her entry:

    Carnation Milk is the best of all,
    No tits to pull, no sh*t to haul;
    No buckets to wash, no hay to pitch,
    Just poke a hole in the son-of-a-bitch!



    True story!!!


    Hahahaha
    Wouldn't it be great it if really is true?

    That is hysterical. I am telling it to a farmer friend.
    He'll love it.

    I was thinking about this story, and wanted to come and look at it again, only to find that the wonderful image was gone! Where-oh-where has it gone?

    Well, fear not, I've at least salvaged the "submission". In doing so, I came across the story at Snopes, and sadly, it's not a true story. It WAS the kind of thing that was bantered about by school kids during that time period, though! Snicker
