Country Life English Butter: "You'll Never Put A Better Bit Of Butter On Your Knife!"

"Oh we are the lads from Country Life, and you'll never put a better bit o' butter on your knife, if you 'aven't any in 'ave a word with the wife and spread it on your toast in the morning!"

The earliest newspaper Country Life yokels newspaper advertisement I have found so far dates back to late 1980. In 1981 the Country Life ditties (there was more than one) were on everybody's lips. Above an early 1980s badge; below, advertisement from the Daily Mirror, 26/3/1981.
