Schrödinger's Pastry

You can't have this comic and read it, too. Oh wait

  1. Ha, what a coincidence: I recently came across a similar discussion. Some people argued it meant "having the cake" (i.e. pretty and whole, on the plate) and "eating the cake" (i.e. cutting and eating it, thus ending with an empty plate). You can't have both the pretty cake and a full stomach.
    Other people claimed it was an inversion "eat your cake and (still) have it", which comes down to the same thing.

    Speaking of which, how about being "head over heals" for someone? Isn't that the logical way up? Have I been doing it wrong all these years??! (By contrast, you can be "a$$ over teakettle", with the teakettle standing in for your head...)

    1. I don't know about you, but if I'm not in love I always find it more comfortable to carry my feet over my head.

  2. And I just notice I misspelled "heels". Stupid autocorrect... ◑﹏◐
