I was alerted this week to a law that I've always thought must be out there; I just never had a title for it.  In contrast to Murphy's Law, Muphry's Law states that "if you write anything criticizing editing or proofreading, there will be a fault of some kind in what you have written."  The earliest source I can find for this law is The Society of Editors Newsletter from March, 1992, though I suspect that it's resided on hot-under-the-collar forums and message boards since the beginning of computing.
