Clara Peller may have left the building, but before she left she made sure we all got the message by asking, â€œWhereâ€™s the beef?â€ in her raspy, distinct voice. Television commercials were her medium, but the rest of us have to rely on a more old-fashioned approach (or YouTube, I suppose).
Itâ€™s not necessary to take on the hamburger establishment and their supposed lack of beef; for the simple comings and goings of everyday life, more often than not, a simple note will suffice. And like a good burger, or a simple message, thereâ€™s nothing fancy about this Cow Chalkboard: itâ€™s just a cow you can write on.
Constructed of black resin with brown accents, the bovine is not small; it measures almost a foot high and twenty inches from snout to tail. A burlap feed bag houses a single piece of chalk, while each side of the cow features a large writing surface. The three dimensional chalkboard may not inspire the next great television commercial catchphrase, but if it does, youâ€™ll have a place to jot the brainstorm down.
***UPDATE 11/27/2018*** Looks like the link above no longer works! The closest thing I could find is this October Hill Decorative Black Mini Chalkboard Cow Place Card Holder/Menu Buffet Label but it is tiny. Only three inches across. Where’s the beef, indeed.
