Mathematically, a dot is a point with zero dimensions, zero distance in any direction. So you can cut it, but half of zero is still zero, it's the same thing. You can change its colour, but that only needs a zero amount of ink, so it's still the same thing. If you draw on it, though, then you can extend it to a line or a curve, which will be something different.

DOG is one letter different from DOT.

Change another one and I am poor.

SOT is one letter different from DOT. A sot might be poor, having wasted all his money on alcohol?
