Poor Old Murphy...

...It must be hard to have your name associated with everything going pear-shaped!

For those who don't know it, Murphy's Law (also known as Sod's Law) states: nothing is as easy as it looks, everything takes longer than you think, and if anything can go wrong, it will... and at the worst possible moment.

Philip of Carpe Canem has put up a post of Murphy's lesser-known laws, and they had me chuckling away for some considerable time... My favourites (too hard to choose) have to be

3. Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't.

4. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

5. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

6. The things that come to those who wait will be the things left by those who got there first.

and finally,

9. When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

Priceless!
