My Code of Ethics:

Murphy's Law


  • Anything good in life is either illegal, immoral or fattening.

  • It is morally wrong to allow suckers to keep their money.

  • The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlamp of an incoming train.

  • Celibacy is not hereditary.

  • Never sleep with anyone crazier than yourself.

  • Beauty is only skin deep, ugly goes to the bone.

  • Never play leapfrog with a unicorn.

  • A Smith and Wesson beats four aces.

  • If everything seems to be going well, you obviously don't know what the hell is going on.

  • Never argue with a fool, people might not know the difference.

  • A shortcut is the longest distance between two points.

  • Friends come and go but enemies accumulate.

  • Everyone had a scheme for getting rich that will not work.

  • The other line always moves faster.

  • Murphy's Golden Rule: Whoever has the gold makes the rules.

  • The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but that's the way to bet.

  • Anything you try to fix will take longer and cost more than you thought.

  • The repairman will never have seen a model like yours before.

  • In order to get a loan, you must first prove you don't need it.

  • No matter how long or hard you shop for an item, after you've bought it, it will be on sale somewhere cheaper.

  • The chance of a piece of bread falling with the buttered side down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet.
