Cat Vs Toast

Every one knows that Cats always land on their feet.
It is also a Universal truth that when you drop a slice of toast, that it will land butter side down.
This begs the question: What happens if you attach a slice of buttered toast on to the back of a cat and drop it?
I hired a small team of experts to investigate this vexing question, and I can now reveal the findings.  I think that you will all be quite amazed at the outcome:
We glued some toast onto the back of a cat, and dropped it, sideways on, from a height of six feet.  The cat dropped as expected, but when it reached a foot from the ground, it stopped and started rolling end over end as each of the competing forces fought for dominance.
Each revolution of the toast/cat was faster that the previous one, and after a few minutes, the team realised that they had discovered the highly sought after perpetual motion.
Having discovered this new energy source, we decided to see if we could run a car with it.
After five attempts to get the bonnet (or 'hood' if you are one of my pals from the USA) closed , and severe lacerations to my arms, it was decided that maybe cat power wasn't stable enough to be harnessed.
