Dole Frozen Pineapple Juices — 1958

Hey, Josephine, what on earth does Napoleon have to do with pineapple juice?

(After a short amble across the internet, I came across this, which informs me that Josephine was from Martinique, a Caribbean island on which pineapples flourish. Which is interesting. But was the frozen-juice-buying public of 1958 aware of this Josephine-pineapple connection? Is that what this ad is even referring to or is it an odd coincidence? I have a feeling my not knowing about the Empress-Josephine-having-been-born-on-a-pineapple-rich-island is a further indictment against the American public school system. Sacrebleu!)
