That milk campaign started almost two decades ago. No one can dispute its success, I suppose, in selling milk, but I always thought the text should have read “Got napkin?” or “Got a clean part of sleeve?”
The slogan came to mind yesterday: I was hanging out along the KVK, teeth chattering as barometer of approaching hypothermia, having fun, and seeing snow and ice in unusual places. So, maybe I can correct what I always imagined to be the flaw of the milk ads . . . Like, the crew of Morgan Reinauer asking . . . “got a snow brush?”
Janice Ann Reinauer herself, “Got my old bow pudding?”
And, I swear, in an Australian-English accent, this pigeon said, “Got some food and hot coffee, or do I need to land on the deck of Piltene out there?”

Cold, though it’s all relative. On the coldest day so far in the sixth boro it’s glided to a balmy 16 F; thermometer in Barrow dropped to -38; International Falls, MN -34; Mount Washington Summit, NH -10; Montreal, Massena, and Toronto, -4; Rondout Creek, 0.
For the most-ice-encrusted award, check these fotos from tugster, April 2, 2008, with fotos taken in Boston February 2007. Can anyone out-encrust this encrustedness?
