Elsie the cow is also on "Bordens Milk" which we used to get up here. On the Glue its Elmer the Bull, husband of Borden's advertising mascot Elsie the Cow. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elmer's_Products,_Inc.
This was all very confusing as a child as Elmer was also a Safety Elephant up here, so non of us wanted to use the glue as it was made from Elsie and Elmer.
Regards,
Gerald.

Foo said that Elsie was on the glue,
"Elsie the cow is alive and well....on the front of every bottle if Elmers glue! Has been for what a century now.....
Foo "
I pointed out that its her Husband Elmer on the glue.
I then pointed out how confusing it had be as a child.
If thats not clear, just put it down to the ramblings of a Confused Canadian.
Regards,
Gerald.

Actually Elmer was a Fudd who stuttered which can be very confusing.
