She is purple. She is a cow. This is quite remarkable.

Other cows want to be like her. They decide it could be cool to be purple.

Suddenly she is not so remarkable.

Creating purple cows has decreasing marginal benefits. Cows now decide to go different colours.

So what’s left?

[Kudos to GoCampingAmerica for having a cool colour-in cow.]
