Sure, but does it cut cow-shaped purple steaks?

I’ve never seen a purple cow
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you anyhow,
I’d rather see than be one
~Gelett Burgess, 1895

Who knew paper-cutters could be fanciful?

This modest tool carries on its box a purple cow, and proudly aligns itself with hereforeto unknown parent company “Purple Cows.” I have no analysis to speak of, I’d just like us to take a moment to look and contemplate and perhaps chuckle at this piece of material culture.
