Canned Milk

A little lady from North Carolina had worked in and around family dairy farms since she was old enough to walk. With hours of hard work and little compensation . . . and then canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores 1940's or 50's ???

She read an advertisement offering $5,000 for the best slogan . . . rhyme beginning with "Carnation Milk is best of all . . "

She said, I know all about milk and dairy farms . . . I can do this!!!!

She sent in her entry and about a week later, a black limo drove up in front of her house . . . a man got out and said, Carnation LOVED your entry so much, we are here to award you $1000, even though we will not be able to use it .. . . .

Here is her entry:

Carnation milk is best of all,
no tits to pull, no shit to haul
no buckets to wash, no hay to pitch,
just poke a hole in the son-of-a-bitch!
