I don't know much about this Beef Pillow. I don't know that there is much you need to know except that it's a pillow. Shaped like beef. It's on sale at Etsy for $42 (originally fifty bucks). It ships from Hong Kong. According to the description:

This is a piece of beef-shape pillow made in knit. The graphics on this pillow is knitted, instead of printed, in five different colors. The pillow cover is custom made using a specialized knit machine. The pillow cover can be easily taken off for washing.

The pillow is 20 inches on its longest side. The realism of the beef texture is what makes the thing work. I picture this pillow on a very fancy Martha Stewart-esque settee. Or on a chair upholstered in some type of potato-design fabric.
