The Toast-Cat.

An old joke about an ingenious invention. For those of you who are not familiar with the concept, the toast cat works following two universal laws,
-Buttered toast always land butter down
-Cats always land on their feet
Thus when connected there is a perpetual battle to be the right way up to fulfill each law.

With initial momentum (a simple push), this force could be harnessed to solve the energy crisis our poor planet is facing. No more carbon emissions!

Or maybe we should stop waiting for some fantastical technology to save us from our mess and just do what we can here and now?

Two colours on a natural organic tee.

The most technical yet best version of this idea I have yet to seen t-shirtted for our physics digestion pleasure. What an odd concept that is continually given new life on this site!

Also, the most out-there connection to the Green contest yet it works oh so purrrfectly!

Thanks everyone! I wasn't expecting this to be up at this time of day. Do people want me to post a link to a detail, or is the presentation ok?

ROFL I love it!! Hey Fleck, did you have a sketch of this up anyplace before? I have the weirdest feeling I've seen it elsewhere (not that it matters, I'm just curious.)

i was worried this would just be an illustration of a cat strapped with some bread, but this is great!

vaguefamiliarity

Holy crap I absolutely love this!! I was making a friend of mine discuss this very same quandary with me just the other day; sadly, we did not reach any definitive conclusion....

If this goes to print (as it should) I'm going to gift it to her.

Thank you everyone!
R Thull- I know it has a far more subtle meaning and association than a lot of the green designs, hopefully that makes it more interesting, and I'm glad you like it anyway!

I've never heard that joke before so I was initially pretty confused about the toast/cat. Otherwise, very well executed.
