Buttering up

For years now I have scratched my head
Trying to understand just how my bread
(Nicely toasted brown)
Fell buttered side down
Now I know – I went wrong with the spread!

Guardian 09/10/06: Scientists have finally discovered how to stop your dropped toast landing buttered side down. The secret lies in the spreading technique. Read about it here

    You may have scratched your head,
    & found an answer to the riddle of the bread
    But what about Murphy's law,
    for it now appears to have a flaw!

  2. Said Gowri to Murphy, "in the wake,
    Of this finding your law is at stake."
    Murphy smiled - "Never!
    My laws are for ever,
    Though I may shift from bread now to cake!"
