The Cartoon Laws of Physics

Wile E. Coyote.

You know all of this of course, but it's always good to see it written down in one place... The Cartoon Laws of Physics.

Cartoon Law 3

Any body passing through solid matter will leave a perforation conforming to its perimeter.

Also called the silhouette of passage, this phenomenon is the speciality of victims of directed-pressure explosions and of reckless cowards who are so eager to escape that they exit directly through the wall of a house, leaving a cookie-cutout-perfect hole. The threat of skunks or matrimony often catalyzes this reaction.

The full set of laws is online at Digital Digressions.
