Land of milk and butter

Some years ago a student slipped up on a final exam and attributed Henry IV's famous quip on religion and politics to Elizabeth I, making the queen say "England is worth a Mass." (Henry said "Paris.")

Today a student paper documented another slip:  "The land of milk and butter."

Just a slip, since the student got it right elsewhere, but still, it's ... delicious.
