I say we make "Splat Buttons" -- clothing buttons that can be sewn onto a
shirt or blouse. Smaller ones with thread holes in them, or larger ones
with a pin clip on the back like a campaign button.
My wife says that there are only 3 button manufacturers anymore, and that
it can be hard to find the right replacement button for clothing 10 years
old or more.
Similar to buttons, we could make pips -- like the kind used to show rank
in the military -- where different colors and/or shapes can represent
special interest or knowledge in an area (like: electronics circuits,
Arduino, software, music making, painting, rocketry, audio-video production,
robotics, sewing, beer making, etc). The idea would be to earn as many
pips as possible as a member of Splat*Space by learning from the different
projects going on. Or groups of like pips getting together after meetings
or at shows.
Or we could make custom Monopoly game pieces, including extra houses and
hotels that always seem to get lost. Or custom game pieces for other games
like Parcheesi or a geek version of Life.

There is a laser-cut slot-together cow on Thingiverse that would be trivial to modify to a printed version.
There may be a freeware solid model cow on the net somewhere, but I haven't looked. It would require support material to be printed, unless you split it down the middle like some creepy avante-garde art installation.
how about printing a big pile of...PLA curds, served piping hot to Jeff. he can paint them red white and blue to suit his patriotic sensibilities.
You'd still need support material under the upper legs, unless they were laying down on the lower legs. Now if the cow was flat on its back with all four legs sticking straight up, that would probably print just fine.
BTW, cow tipping is a low-brow pastime, usually indulged in by the same kind of people who eat cheese curds.
