We all know Murphy's Law:  Things that can go wrong will go wrong.

Then there is the Addendum: At the wrost possible time and place.

Then there is O'Brian's Law that says:  Murphy was one hell of an optimist.

When things go wrong as they usually will,

When the road you travel seems all up hill,

When you try to smile but can only cry, and

When you are really tired and would like to quit,

Don't come to me I don't give a ............. Darn!
