Thinking inside the box

Hello SchroddyWhen I go into those occasional “sucks to be me” moods, I have to look for positive aspects to my existence as a countermeasure. (If one of them also works as blogfodder, so much the better.) One such positive aspect is the fact that I know several women who will not only get the joke, but might actually consider getting the shirt:

This might not be Hello Kitty. It might be Goodbye Kitty. We cannot possibly know without observing, and then we change the outcome.

Heisenberg may or may not have been available for comment.

    Nuke the box from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

    Sigh. Didn’t take advanced enough Physics courses in college to get the joke. Luckily, I consort with geeks who laboriously explained the joke to me. The physics left me flat but I learned a new German term out of it: Verschränkung. Which should be worked into the T-shirt somehow.

    I get the joke but in my opinion it pre-dates the shirt by about 75 years. But that may just be me.

    Best not to mess with Kitty. Leave the box alone.

    I want that shirt like I have wanted very few things in my life.

    Then you don’t get the joke. Or, rather, you only get half of it.

    (Hello Kitty was introduced by Sanrio in 1975, which was considerably less than 75 years ago.)

    Want! I’ll be buying that one and wearing it proudly!

    I really want one but it’s “girl cut,” which means the t-shirt runs really small (I think they say an extra-large is like a size 10. WTF?) So I don’t think I’ll be wearing one unless they make a size/style for those of us who have, um, more in the box up front.

    Tam — Schrödinger’s Cat, 1935. As in, 2010 minus 75.

    Try again, hmmm?

    You’re still only getting half the joke, I see.

    There’s no ‘lanche like a Tamalanche!

    It’s just a Saturday one. :(

    Saturday is when I need it the most, though.

    Somebody picked this up on Facebook. (If you know who did, please tell me.)

    I would order it but for an awful color.

    Besides, I don’t like cats of all kinds

    If you arrived here from Facebook, would you be so kind as to tell me just who it was who linked to this page?

    You’re right, Chaz, on both points — you clearly do know several women who get the joke, and that is one of the bright points in your existence. One of many, I would hasten to add.
