Muphry’s Law

Murphy’s Law is that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.  In a Murphistic universe, it follows that we also need to be wary of Muphry’s Law: “If you write anything criticizing proofreading or editing, there will be a fault or mistake in what you have written.”

Of course there will.

This is also know as Hartman’s Law of Prescriptivist Retaliation: “any article or statement about correct grammar, punctuation, or spelling is bound to contain at least one eror.”
