From a New England farmer's newspaper, 1861
You know the ubiquitous butter churn? It's always seemed like yet another exhausting chore. Ever try it? Remember a teacher in elementary school hammering home the lesson by actually bringing one to school. Kids took turns using that thing and after 25 children gave up we still only created a slight amount of cream colored sludge.
Who needed a gym membership? Butter churns may drum up nostalgia but no one remembers sweat equity involved.
WELL. Try this monster! Newspaper ad of course makes it appear simple, a dainty woman smiling as she dumps what looks like a 50 gallon barrel filled with milk over. And over.
"... aid the farmer's wife in the dairy room " Too funny. Aid her to a heart attack.
