I was hoping that there was a more sinister explanation; hooves in it or something. It turns out, according to the Elmer’s website, Elmer is the husband of Borden’s Elsie the cow. They wanted to use Elsie for the glue, but then stupid people might eat it so they used Elmer here. We both learned something today. Hooray for internets!

One response to “Elmer

  1. This is actually a really good drawing of that cow… or bull… Thanx for the history too, I didn’t know that about Old Elmer… Oh, and I bet people still eat the stuff regardless of the name!
