The Purple Cow

For your enjoyment:

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

by: Gelett Burgess

(A Parody of The Purple Cow)
I've never seen a purple cow
My eyes with tears are full
I've never seen a purple cow
And I'm a purple bull.

by: Anonymous

There are many other parodies of The Purple Cow including:

this one by O. Henry:

I never beat a rotten egg,
I never hope to beat one
But this you'll understand, I beg
I'd rather beat than eat one

and this one by Burgess himself:

Oh, 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
