"Mrs. Butterworth has always had a first name, but it's been passed down over the years to various managers, and none of the adults around here thought to use it until an employee's son asked what it was."

If you submit Estelle or Ethel, you must split your winnings with us. As quoted by the Los Angeles Times.)
