Wasi Manazir, if you want a point for the question, please post a comment on this post.

Answer: Many of you said Murphy’s law, but that is just a joke on Uncyclopedia.

I was looking for “Buttered cat paradox” or any explaination consisting of a cat and buttered toast.

    Buttered Cat Paradox.Its based on the adages.
    1.Cats always land on their feet.
    2.Buttered toast always lands buttered side down.
    As a thought experiment,if one considers what would happen if one attached a piece of buttered toast to the back of a cat, then dropped the cat from a large height.

    since d buttered bread always falls buttered side down and cats always land on their feet, if the bread is strapped onto the cat’s back then the forces of cat-twisting and butter repulsion are in equilibrium and hence the cat never falls!! :D

    Buttered-cat paradox. Easy.
    A combo of :
    1.Cats always land on their feet.
    2.Buttered toast always lands buttered side down.

    Buttered Cat Paradox

    bread always falling on the buttered side .
    Cat always landing on its feet.

    Murphy’s law application for antigravity cats – When a cat falls with a slice of buttered bread strapped to its back then the cat spins about its CG.

    :D

  18. Buttered Cat Paradox.
    The buttered cat paradox is a joke paradox based on the tongue-in-cheek combination of two adages:
    Cats always land on their feet.
    Buttered toast always lands buttered side down.
    The paradox arises when one considers what would happen if one attached a piece of buttered toast (butter side up) to the back of a cat, then dropped the cat from a large height.

    Oh k…

    So here goes my answer:

    Its a paradox based on the tongue-in-cheek combination of two bits of folk wisdom:
    1. Buttered toast always falls buttered side down
    2. cats always land on their feet

    Now, the paradox arises when one cosiders wat would happen if one attached a piece of buttered toast (buttered side up, ofcourse!)to the back of a cat and then dropped from a height.

    Many feel it will produce an anti-gravity effect, they propose that as the cat falls towards the ground, it will slow down and start to rotate, eventually reaching a steady state of hovering a short distance from the ground while rotating at speed as both the buttered side of the toast and the cat\’s feet attempt to land on the ground!

    Another view…
    When you have strapped a bread on cat\\\’s back.. How will the bread fell?? :-) It\\\’s only cat who will fall…
