Purple Cow

Revision as of 14:33, October 17, 2005 by (talk)

The Purple Cow is Williams' mascot, after the infamous poem by Gelett Burgess:

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

This was later followed by a sequel:

Ah, yes, I wrote the "Purple Cow"—
I'm sorry, now, I wrote it!
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I'll kill you if you quote it.

The Purple Cow
is also the name of Williams' first humor magazine.
