Friday Fun: Murphy’s Laws of Combat Operation

Posted by Kelli McKinney fun friday murphys lawsThe current state of affairs both in D.C. and abroad bring to mind a fellow named Murphy who wrote a little self-appointed law about things that can go wrong. You might be familiar with it. And even though we’re typically an optimistic bunch here at, we couldn’t help but get a kick out of some of the tongue-in-cheek variations on Murphy’s Laws we found out on the interwebs. Here are a few that made us laugh – hope they make you laugh, too.


If it’s stupid but it works, it isn’t stupid.

If at first you don’t succeed, call in an airstrike.

Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself.

Never forget that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.

Things which must be shipped together as a set, aren’t.

The one item you need is always in short supply.

Combat will occur on the ground between two adjoining maps.

The quartermaster has only two sizes, too large and too small.

If you really need an officer in a hurry, take a nap.
