Bastet

[ #31657 ]

is both an Egyptian goddess, patron of cats and regarded as a cat herself (although Wikipedia has more to say on the subject), and a Tetris clone that IMHO would deserve being more widely known, since the idea would benefit being further pursued and brought over to other implementations: in fact it's Bastard Tetris in short: it just gives you the worst piece for each situation.

Now, any connection? Evidence suggests most probably not, but what could prevent one from possibly inventing one?!?
