In case, you're not old enough to have experienced the horror of powdered milk, first, thank your lucky stars. Second, go find your parents and thank them for never resorting to such measures as powdered milk in the lean times your family may have had. If you're powdered-milk-curious, go ahead and read this. Times can be rough when raising a family, of course, but I submit that powdered milk is a bigger waste of money than normal milk, because you'll never get to the bottom of a pitcher of powdered milk. Also, can you ever imagine saying "We shouldn't have wasted that money buying liquid milk."?
Anyway, the Borden monstrosities in this ad are, for some reason, going with a movie projector theme. First up on the big screen tonight - some words trying to make powdered milk seem less than disgusting. Dad cow (I've just been informed that's "Elmer the Cow".) is previewing the second reel. What could that be? News reels of war atrocities inappropriately accompanied by calliope music? It could be no less wholesome than powdered milk propaganda.
