It's contest time! Old Dutch Cleanser had a contest in 1942 in which one had to complete a little poem in order to win lots of very green money (as you can see, it will make you simper when you hold it close to your face).
OK, so here's what we have to do - we will be filling in the last line of this immortal verse:
"I Like Old Dutch Cleanser"
Said A Housewife named Knight
"It's so safe and so fast
...Though my hands look a fright
...And the sink looks all right
...I'll be done by midnight
...Though the difference is slight
...She's just being polite
...It cleans better than Sprite
...And it doesn't ignite!
There are probably some Knight jokes in there, possibly about the Round Table, but I don't think I can find them right now. I was thinking about Old Dutch Cleanser anyway because I was writing about it over on The Doubletake yesterday - when you win the contest, you'll be so grateful to that Old Dutch Cleanser can, you may want to make it a little sweater. If you do, the pattern is over there.
