When opening a can of Carnation evaporated milk for your recipes, just smile and think of this.
A little old lady from North Carolina had worked in and around her family dairy farms since she was old enough to walk, with hours of hard work and little compensation. So when canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores, 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 $1,000, 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 hay to haul, no buckets to wash and no shit to pitch. Just poke a hole in the son-of-a-bitch!
It may or may not be a true story, but its still funny. The lady had to be from my dad's side of the family as they are from North Carolina.
