I got this from ...my octogenarian mother!
A little old lady from New Orleans had worked in and around 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 she read an advertisement offering $5,000 for the best slogan... a rhyme beginning with "Carnation Milk is best of all...."
She said to herself, "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, "We at Carnation loved your entry so much, we are here to award you $1000 -- even though we will not be able to use it."
When you read her entry, you'll know why they couldn't use it:
Carnation milk is best of all,
no tits to pull, no shit to haul.
No buckets to wash, no hay to pitch,
just poke a hole in the son-of-a-bitch!
