New Year 2023, a fresh start for everyone, and why not butter, too?
Mia, the young lady who graced the Land O Lakes butter box since 1928, including her redesign in 1954 by Red Lake Ojibwe Nation native Patrick DesJarlait, was retired in 2020. I won’t say much more on that yet. So, now we have:
Nature hates a vacuum (so does a housewife), and the current box is bare and boring. Why let a lovely landscape go to waste? So, in the spirit of the new year and fresh beginnings, my creative sister Morra Morron and I came up with a few ideas…
Literature’s contribution to Land O Lakes, and a fitting one with George Orwell’s kindly character who’s going to take care of you.
In the spirit of inclusivity, we must not leave out aliens.
How can you have a lake scene and not include Nessie?
One really ugly piece of artwork, and finally:
Well, I’ll miss you, Mia. I guess it’s more important to get rid of things rather than use them as teaching points.
Who’s next? Count Chocula? I don’t know, but maybe I’ll start reading Fahrenheit 451. (How did I make a leap from butter to dystopian literature?) Weird.
Anyway, cheers, ’til next time, keep laughing, keep reading!
