Murphy's Law PW0245
Man Behind the Bar PW0910
Irish Tea Towel Murphy's Law, Made in Ireland
If you think everything seems to be going well, you obviously don't understand the situation. Left to themselves, things always go from bad to worse. If you tinker with and improve something for long enough. Eventually it will break. Nature always sides with the hidden flaw. A short cut is the longest distance between two points. Friends come and go, but enemies accumulate. The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlamp of an oncoming train. By making something absolutely clear, somebody will be confused. Anything you try to fix will take longer and cost more than you think. In order to get a loan you must first prove that you don't need it. You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all the people some of the time, and that's enough. Murphy was an optimist.

Man Behind the Bar Irish Tea Towel, Made in Ireland
He deserves a hero's medal for the many lives he's saved, And upon the Roll of Honour his name should be engraved. He deserves a lot of credit for the way he stands the strain. For the yarns he has to swallow would drive most of us insane.

He must pay the highest licence, he must pay the highest rent. He must battle with his bank and pay their ten percent. And when it comes to paying bills, he's always on the spot. He pays for what he sells, whether you pay him or not.

And when you walk into his Bar, he'll greet you with a smile. Be you a workman dressed in overalls or a banker dressed in style. If you're Irish English Scotch or Welsh, it doesn't matter what. He'll treat you like a gentleman, unless you prove you're not. Yet the clergy in the pulpit and the preacher in the hall. Will assure him that the Churches are against him one and all. But when the Churches plan to hold a ballot or bazaar. They start by selling tickets to the man behind the bar.

When he retires a job well done, to await six feet of soil, Discards his coat and apron, no more on earth to toil. As Saint Peter sees him coming, he will leave those gates ajar. For he knows he had his Hell on Earth, THE MAN BEHIND THE BAR
