The Purple Cow


NEVER saw a Purple Cow,
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.

~ Gelett Burgess (1866-1951)


  1. I'm curious about he cow figurines. Is this one yours? Do you collect them? Where did you develop your love for cows?

    In other cow news, we lived by a dairy farm when we were little. When he was about four, my little brother told my mom, "I know how to keep dem cows frum doin' dose stinky messies. Cut off der tails!" Fortunately, he never went into veterinary science.

  2. Christie, the purple cow pictured is part of my mad cow collection.
    I started a cow collection in college when I chanced upon a cow creamer at a second hand store, which I brought to the coffee house I worked at on campus. It was an instant "conversation starter", and I started collecting cows from that point on!
    Thanks for your comments!!

  3. (P.S. Gelett Burgess is the author of The Goops books.)
