Carnation Milk Contest



 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:) 
 I'm told this is a true story

Thanks Dan

I can see that a farmer would really appreciate Carnation Milk. LOL!

Mr. AOW said...

True dat! A wise old lady, huh?

Randy, I hang it on my wall too.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Brooke, she should know.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

AOW, that one sure did.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Mr. you know your ladies!

She got it right. That said as a young teen on the farm, the only tits I got to pull were those down at the ole barn.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, I believe that's what she's referring to. As a Yute, I surfed and developed quite an appreciation for the "other" type at the beach.

No, that's what the cowboys said.

PS In honor of National Offend A Feminist Week, can we have some gorgeous ladies to ogle like the male chauvinist pigs we proudly are?

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Admiral. I are one too.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, I think it is, but still cool.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...
