Irish joke for November - "Murphy's Law" finally explained, in Irish!

Murphy drops some buttered toast on the kitchen floor, and lo & behold..... it lands butter-side-up!


He looks down in astonishment, for he knows it's a law of the universe that buttered toast ALWAYS lands butter-down. So he rushes round to the Parish 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 floor. "Well," says the Priest, "it's pretty obvious. Someone has dropped some buttered toast on the floor and then, for some reason, they've 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.... but 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 around 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 must have buttered the toast on the wrong side!"
