Murphy

Murphy De Wet van Murphy van Edward A. Murphy luidt “Als er meer dan één manier is om iets te doen en één van die manieren in een ramp zal resulteren, dan zal iemand het zo doen”.

Nu willen wij natuurlijk niet de suggestie wekken, dat wanneer u ons boekt voor een feest, uw avond in de soep loopt. Integendeel, wij staan immers garant voor succes! Wij hebben echter onze naam ontleend aan Edward Murphy en dat leek ons wel een vermelding waard.

De vraag blijft misschien: waarom Murphy’s Law? Tijdens de oprichting van onze band in 1986 werden wij geïnspireerd door een poster met Australische varianten op de wet van Murphy. Het beeldmerk van de poster, Good Old Murphy, heeft vanaf het begin van ons bestaan altijd een belangrijke rol gespeeld. Daarom hebben wij hem zoals u ziet ook op onze website weer een prominente plaats gegeven.

Download hier de oorspronkelijke poster en/of lees hieronder de wetten van Murphy:

  • The chance of a piece of bread falling with the buttered side down is directly proportianal to the cost of the carpet.

  • A $600.= picture tube will protect a 10 ct fuse by blowing first.

  • Beauty is only skin deep, ugly goes to the bone.
