"Why pick cows for advertising glue?" I wondered. The little picture on the white school glue bottles we had to buy each year was of Elmer the COW, right?
Ah, another cow! What about Elsie? At least she made sense: cows, milk…
Elmer, cow, glue… I don’t think I want to go there!
Soo. I went to the closet and pulled out the bottle of rubber cement. "Columbus, Ohio." The white school glue bottle confirmed my suspicion: Borden company. That’s the connection. Elsie and Elmer are husband and wife!
I wonder if they ever met the Pilsbury couple
