    Carnations ... it's not all milk and honey

    This is priceless.


    Carnation milk - 65 YEARS AGO .. This is choice!


    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 limo 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!'

    "Carnation milk is best of all...no tits to pull, no hay to haul, no buckets to wash, no **** to pitch, just poke a hole in the SOB"

    Love it, can understand why they couldn't use it. But she did get $2,000 for a good laugh.
