An Unanswerable Question

The following are both true:

  1. The toast always lands buttered side down. This is the Breakfast Corollary to Murphy's Law.

  2. A cat always lands on its feet.

Let's suppose, then, we strap a piece of toast, buttered side up, on a cat's back, and drop it. On which side does it land?
