At last, confirmation of 'Murphy's Law'

with a wonderful Irish explanation

Murphy drops some buttered toast on the kitchen floor and it lands


He looks down in astonishment, for he knows it's a law of the universe

that buttered toast always falls butter-down. So he rushes round to

the presbytery to fetch Father Flanagan.

He tells the priest that a miracle has occurred in his kitchen. He

won't say what it is, but asks Fr. Flanagan to come and see it with his

own eyes.

He leads Fr.Flanagan into the kitchen and asks him what he sees on the


"Well," says the priest, "it's pretty obvious. Someone has dropped

some buttered toast on the floor and then, for some reason, they flipped

it over so that the butter was on top."

"No, Father, I dropped it and it landed like that!" exclaimed Murphy

"Oh my Lord," says Fr. Flanagan, "Dropped toast never falls with the

butter side up. It's a miracle.

Wait... it's not for me to say it's a miracle. I'll have to report

this matter to the Bishop and he'll have to deal with it. He'll send some

people round; to interview you, take photos, etc."

A thorough investigation is conducted, not only by the archdiocese but

by scientists sent over from the Curia in Rome . No expense is spared.

There is great excitement in the town as everyone knows that a miracle

will bring in much needed tourism revenue.

Then, after 8 long weeks and with great fanfare, the Bishop announces the

final ruling.

"It is certain that some kind of an extraordinary event took place in

Murphy's kitchen, quite outside the natural laws of the universe. Yet

the Holy See must be very cautious before ruling a miracle. All other

explanations must be ruled out. "

"Unfortunately, in this case, it has been declared 'No Miracle'

because they think Murphy may have buttered the toast on the wrong side!"
