[A true delight…and it is JUST the way we talked in Eagle Lake fifty-some years ago, too! — OUC]
A little old lady from Wisconsin had worked in and around her family’s dairy farm since she was old enough to walk, with hours of hard work and little to show.
When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores in approximately the 1920s and the Depression set in at the end of the decade, she read an advertisement offering $500 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 long Duesenberg limo pulled up in front of her  farmhouse.

 A man got out and said, “Carnation LOVED your  entry so much!  We are here to award you $200 even though we will not be able to use it!”

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