    Butter side down? NOT!

    You know the irrefutable laws of the universe?

    The one that says a dropped slice of buttered toast always lands butter side down?

    Not today, I was carrying my two slices of toast to the steps from the deck to the pool so I could sit in the shade and enjoy my lunch.

    On the top step one slice slid off the plate rolled on its edge down the steps across the paving and into the pool.

    I have just proved the exception to the rule.

    This is how you confuse the sh1t out of the universe:

    Given:
    1. Buttered bread always falls on the buttered side.
    2. Cats always land on their feet.

    Method:
    1. Tie a buttered piece of toast (butter side up) to a cats back.
    2. Push the cat off the roof!
