Muphry's Law

Muphry's Law states that:

When you set out to criticise the poor grammar, proofreading or typos of others, you're bound to make at least one mistake yourself.

I found this in the comments section of a blog about typos being overlooked in publications despite them having been proofread many times. Click on it if it's too small.



QED

I've not referenced the blog in order to protect the identity of the not-so innocent.

And I can't be 100% sure because it drifts away towards the end but I think there are no less than eight grammatical mistakes in Lyn F's comment.

Muphry would be proud.
