Not sure if this is really true, but funny.

Sorry about the language at the end.  No way for fix it or it would spoil the whole thing. A friend sent it to me and even though she was told it was true we wonder.

Carnation Milk
65 Years Ago.

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.

True story!!!


  1. Dang, the image with the slogan isn't showing.

  2. I also couldn't see the image - just a little symbol oindicating something was meant to be there...

  3. My hubby told me this some years ago, but he must not have known the origin. All I recall is the slogan and it was funny.
    I see nothing here either.

  4. I will check back later because I really want to know.

  5. Sorry there's no image. Post this again.
