Did you know Yahoo has its own purple cow?

Did you know Yahoo has its own purple cow? If you think I’m making this up, please read on. I have the photo to proove it.

I was catching up on my LinkedIn newsfeed this weekend when I saw one of my connections recommending an article regarding Yahoo. What intrigued me was not the title of the article but the photo what stood next to it. Wow, is this a purple cow? Yes, it is! But why is it connected with an article on Yahoo?

So I clicked on the link (you can read the full article on working at Yahoo here) and that’s when I saw the large image of Yahoo’s purple cow (see above). Apparently if you work or visit Yahoo, you’re able to pose right by it for a picture. Nice!

Why the purple cow? Obviously the Yahoo founders read Seth Godin’s Purple Cow book and thought Yahoo should stand as the purple cow in the internet world.

I can only say one thing about this: Yamoo!

The many cows of Christmas – Part 4

This is my last cow sighting report for 2012 and it’s very special. It’s the last of the cow gifts I received for Christmas and it’s very, very cute. The clue I gave you previously was, it’s something you wear but it’s not clothing. Did you guess? It’s a cow brooch!

There have been all sorts of cows on this blog but this is the very first cow brooch. Apparently, it’s not that unique because there are a lot of cow brooches out there. Who knew?

And look, it’s a purple cow, how special! Of course, it holds its special place among the other purple cows on this blog, including:

- Seth Godin’s Purple Cow
The Milka cow (here too)
– A real purple cow

There you have it, a whole herd of purple cows. I can’t think of a better way to say goodbye to 2012 and welcome the new year.

Happy 2013, everyone!

I found a real purple cow for Seth Godin

Seth Godin, marketing genius and author of Purple Cow: Transform Your Business by Being Remarkable, should be very interested in today’s cow. And if you’ve never seen a purple cow, you’re about to see one.

I spotted it online about a week ago in one of those Yahoo Odd News videos. This little purple calf was recently born in Serbia, and even though it looks more gray than purple, it’s still being called a purple cow, which is a very rare occurrence.

 And if you think this purple cow is not purple enough to your taste, there’s nothing Photoshop can’t fix.

 And if this still doesn’t do and you want the ultimate purple cow, just go back to reading my recent post on the Milka cow. Now, that’s purple!
