Time for another smile. Everyone’s heard of ‘Murphy’s Law’. Not everyone realises that there’s a whole family of them. Here are a few members of the family:-
Murphy’s First Law: Nothing is as easy as it looks.
Murphy’s Second Law: Everything takes longer than you think.
Murphy’s Third Law: Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
Murphy’s Fourth Law: If several things can go wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong.
Murphy’s Fifth Law: If anything simply cannot go wrong, it will anyway.
Einstein’s Second Theory of Relativity: If your parents didn’t have any children, odds are that you won’t either.
Archimedes Second Principle: When a body is immersed in water – the phone rings.
Freeman’s Law: Halitosis is better than no breath at all.
The secret of good health is a pickled onion a day. Trouble is, no-one can keep it a secret.
Cole’s Law: Thinly Sliced Cabbage.
