When I made the black Pork Pie Hat, I was aiming for something else, like Adam Cartwright's hat in BONANZA. Then my sister, a BREAKING BAD fan, said "It's a Heisenberg Hat", which made me think of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle because I dated a Physics major in college, rather than the character Heisenberg. Isn't that the theory?--the one where you can't know where something is and how fast it's moving at the same time? Many car accidents happen this way. Naturally, then I thought of Schrödinger's cat (which my sister said was like the "if a tree falls in the forest" theory). Frankly, I think the uncertainty is what a cat is likely to do. Though my experience with them is that they will be extremely pissed off at being trapped in a box and would claw their way out and spray the first thing they came upon, which alas, is Heisenberg's Hat. It's a work in progress while we argue about what to call it.
It all started with Heisenberg's hat. You know, Walter White's alter ego's hat on BREAKING BAD. But Buffalo wasn't satisfied with a plain black hat. She had to accessorize it. With Schrödinger's cat. Which is both dead and alive. So she made a box, a live cat and a cat skeleton and attached them all to the hat, with Heisenberg's formula painted on the hat band. Note that the live cat is pissing on the hat (as cats do).
I wanted a zombie cat. But Lisa said I was mixing metaphors... again.
The Heisenberg Hat (with Schrödinger's Cat) is available in the Etsy store.
