Murphy's law is actually (roughly) "if something can go wrong, it will".
But, in context, I suppose the misattribution does have a kind of ironic 
charm ;)

Some tangential laws...

"It is impossible to make anything foolproof, because fools are so 
ingenious." --RobertHeinlein
"Those who try to build idiot-proof systems always underestimate the 
persistence and ingenuity of idiots." --anon
"If you make your system more idiot-proof the idiots will build a bigger 
idiot" --anon

Sorry to be off-topic.  My next post will be a programming teaser :)
