A little old lady from Newfoundland 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 1940's, 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 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 hay to haul
no buckets to wash, no shit to pitch,
just poke a hole in the son of a bitch."

This is said to be a true story. Really or not? I'm a bit skeptical. :o)
