CVS? https://www.cnbc.co...pts--heres-how.html
Seems to be a shop, that is "well known" for having long receipts. Must be a local thing. [zen_tom, Jun 17 2019]

       ? Is this like CSI Miami?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 17 2019
  

       I think it means "continously variable suspension".

       Perhaps it's about the optimal shape for a CV during its transfer to the circular file?

       Could be Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome.

       If we rule out Cardiovascular System and Crankcase Ventilation System out-of-hand, another option is Coversed sine, which is (apparently) the trigonometric function :
cvs(theta)=1-sin(theta)
presumably because writing that instead would make one's equations pellucid.
Although I must admit that how it relates to origami still isn't clear.

       [zen_tom]'s link is the appropriate referent

       Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, obviously... (hmm, unless it's Chromium-Vanadium Steel, but that might be a difficult medium for origami)

       // that might be a difficult medium for origami //   

       Unless you're one of those diminutive elderly Japanese swordsmiths, who can handle a katana blade that's glowing the colour of moonlight seen through cherry blossom with their bare hands ...

       //Seems to be a shop, that is "well known" for having long receipts.//   

       Gah, boring.   

       //(hmm, unless it's Chromium-Vanadium Steel, but that might be a difficult medium for origami)//   

       I could really get behind the chromium-vanadium steel sheet-metal origami concept, requiring the skillful application of press brakes.

       "Fold your own DeLorean, in only 200 weekly parts ... first issue includes giant letterbox and installation kit ..."

       //Unless you're one of those diminutive elderly Japanese swordsmiths, who can handle a katana blade that's glowing the colour of moonlight seen through cherry blossom with their bare hands// - alas, I am in fact a reasonably tall Japanese swordsmith who can handle a katana blade that's glowing the colour of moonlight seen through cherry blossom with my bare hands

       My second zen master also claimed to be able to see through cherry blossom with his bare hands.
pocmloc, Jun 18 2019
  

       In Russia, cherry blossom sees you.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 18 2019
  

       // cherry blossom //   

       Perhaps we should point out that we are referring to the popular brand of brown shoe polish, not the flowering tree.

       With pattern will origami, and origami, and origami, till the end.

       //With pattern will origami, and origami, and origami, till the end.// There are 3,326,400 different ways to arrange those words, and none of them is a sentence.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 19 2019
  

       Poetry of emotion then.

       You are all wrong. Even you, [Lurch], though it's your idea, you're stil wrong. It's "Certified Venus Specimen". A fine hunking hunk of a male from Venus, twisted and folded into interesting objects known only to Earthlings.
blissmiss, Jun 21 2019
  

       [blissmiss] Your not a cartoonist are you? With that sort of mind, I am imagining a funny and slightly surreal comic strip.
wjt, Jun 22 2019
  

       //A fine hunking hunk of a male from Venus//   

       No no no, [bliss]. Men are from Mars, women are from Venus. Did you skip the '90s ?

       CVS, chemical vapor supposition, is what I did recently when I just supposed CVD would do what I wanted.
beanangel, Jun 23 2019
  

       Tired girl just read that as "suppository" beanangel, cause i was not really paying attention.   

       And yes, Men are from Mars and Women, well women...as one songwriter once sang to me, "Are just men with a whole lot more woe".   

       Nap time.
blissmiss, Jun 23 2019
  

       Some wag is reported to have told a customer " Your scroll, sire " as he gave him the receipt.   

       Me, I refer to them as " homeless blankets ".   

       For a single item it can be a couple of feet long, mostly coupons for things you just bought that will expire before you need them again, and for things you would never buy.   

       For multiple items they can be four foot long.

       I'll be perfectly happy to give you my personal information in return for you not wrecking the environment. But first you'll have to give me free stuff to not kick a puppy.

       What's wrong with just making multiple flexy hexagons?
