You cannot cut your hair with it. You cannot milk a cow with it. Nor can you milk a rhinoceros with it. You cannot use it to floss your teeth, steer your alpaca or clean your windows with it. You cannot marry 12 wives, using it as your minister. You cannot get it to construct a new mansion for you in the Turks and Caicos Islands. You cannot get it to turn one of your hands into a pair of garden shears. You cannot get it to de-bone a chicken for you in the style of Jacques Pepin.
