    Title: When You're Trying to Impress Someone...

    It never fails.  When you are taking a prestigious member of society on an extensive tour of your estate, the neighbor's pet will choose that moment to scatter your garbage around.

    The law of Attention

    The chance of a man losing attention due to a pretty girl is in direct proportion to the importance of the task at hand.

    The most perfect piece of robotic engineering can be destroyed by a damn fool

    Title: Shouldn't have bought the juice megapack

    Turns out everyone else knew about Mrs. Murphy's "short cut."  Naturally, traffic jammed, and there was no place with a bathroom, and little Sean just drank six Hawaiian Punches.

    Title: Party Foul!

    Sylvia always threw the best parties! But you had to read the invitation very carefully!

    Deanne: "But the invitation said, 'Dress as an animated character'!"

    Sylvia (Jartnia): "No, it said, 'Dress as an anime character'. A fine, but critical, distinction."

    Hailie: "What-ever! Girl, that dress looks just fabulous on you!"

    Title: Negotiating From a Position of Strength (or, Christmas in the Wastelands)
    Stephanie and Victoria knew that there would be a price to pay even to approach the treasure the griffin was guarding.  There always is.

    Griffin: "How's about a little kiss, Red?  That is, if you want the treasure...?"
    Stephanie: "That's not mistletoe, you moron, it's holly.  It doesn't count."
    Griffin: "Hey, am I a botanist?  Do I look like Euell Freakin' Gibbons to you!?  Let's just take the intent for the deed, and get down to a little seasonal osculation, shall we?"
    Stephanie: "Well..., okay.  But no tongue!" (To Victoria): "If he tries to slip me any tongue, you kill him, understand?"
    Victoria: "I'm on it!"

    The Mall is Closed

    Murphy’s Law:  When you really need it the Mall is closed.


    Janna stopped to admire the camisole worn by the mannequin.  She put down one of her bags of groceries to feel the silky fabric.  It wasn’t until she got home that she realized she was missing the most important ingredient.  By the time she got back to the Infernal Mall it had closed with her bag trapped inside.

    Poor Billionaire
    Whatever you want, you can't have; what you can have, you don't want.

    Title: No Rest for the Dazaholics

    Murphy's law: When you think you've hit rock bottom... You haven't.

    Without fail, every time Margo the homeless Dazaholic found a quiet 3-D alley in which to crash for the night, Lenny, the flying snail appeared, reliving his traumatic battles from the Mollusk Trojan War with his stash of Ron's Explosions.

    Murphy's Law #10 - "The probability of an occurance is in inverse ratio to its desirability."


    She nursed him back to health when he broke his foot. She was so kind and patient. He fell head over heels in love. Desperate to see her again and express his feelings he arranged a rendezvous on the footbridge, near the hospital. He purchased a jewelry box, carefully tucking a necklace inside. It was the perfect moment, the warm glow of the late afternoon sun, the quiet, deserted walkway. Filled with nervous excitement, his hand sweaty and shaking, he presented his gift - that slipped from his grasp and tumbled away...

    A Curious date

    [Murphy's law: Your one night stand date will always look less appealing in the morning than he did the night before.]

    When the young artist woke up this morning, she did vaguely remember bringing home a guy last night, but was quite surprised when she took a look at him in a clear daylight.

    Murphy's law #4 - "Nature always sides with the hidden flaw."
    Circus - Finally winter was loosening it's grip. The sun was warm, soon the trees would bud and the carnival would come to town. In his green house admiring his prize hibiscus, Gus noticed a circus truck stopped at the end of his farm. A young lady dressed in a skimpy costume had gotten out. Quickly, he snipped her a stem of flowers and hurried down for a closer look and to see if he could be of help. He'd no sooner given her the flowers when he was grabbed from behind and held in a bear hugging, furry, embrace. "Oh", the girl exclaimed, "Sinbad likes you!" Gripped with terror, Gus managed to gasp - "I'm allergic to cats."

    Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse
    Wealthy hedge fund manager Marty Pipster retired for several decades to his well-stocked bunker in order to wait out the bad times. When he ran out of his favorite scotch he decided to come out and found that, as Murphy and his own professional "wisdom" predicted - left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse. Good thing he was up pretty high as those pesky ocean levels were up quite a bit.

    Law of Fashion
    Any given dress is: indecent 10 years before its time, daring 1 year before its time, chic in its time, dowdy 3 years after its time, hideous 20 years after its time, amusing 30 years after its time, romantic 100 years after its time, and beautiful 150 years after its time.

    Barry Smythe always cheerfully disregards his tasteless neighbor's derisive stares and comments, knowing that he is on the cutting edge of fashion.

    Some Day My Prince Will Come...

    ... bearing an invitation to his Grand Ball. But that will be the day after I decided it was never going to happen, so I took all my party dresses to the charity shop and now I literally haven't a thing to wear!
