They are doing a great job:

[FAO] Buttered Toast

Dear Butter & Toast,

that buttered toast always falls butter-down.

He rushes round to the presbytery to fetch the priest. He tells the priest that he
thinks a miracle has happened round at his flat. He won't say what it is but wants

Fr Flannagan to see it with his own eyes.

He brings Fr Flannagan into the kitchen and asks him what he sees on the floor."

"Well, says the priest, "it's pretty obvious what we have here. Someone
dropped some buttered toast, and then for some reason flipped it over so that
the butter was on top."
"No, Father, I dropped it and it landed like that."
"Well, Fr Flannagan says, "it's certainly a natural law of the universe that
dropped toast never falls butter side up. But it's not for me to say it's a miracle.

I'll report the matter to the bishop, and have him send people round, to interview
you, take photos, etc."

An investigation of some rigor is conducted, not only by priests of the archdiocese,
but by scientists sent from the Curia in Rome.

The final ruling is a negative, however. It reads:
"It was certainly an extraordinary event that occurred in Murphy's room, quite outside the
normal run of the phenomena. Yet we have to be very cautious before ruling any happening
miraculous, ruling out all possible natural explanations. In this case we declared no miracle.

For it was possibly the result of Murphy buttering the toast on the wrong side."
