As is often the case, Jennings was there first. See his 1963 article on research into Resistentialism (or the belief that "The Things are Against Us"). He didn't get as far as buttered cats but documented very careful experiments with marmalade and carpets... http://webjournal.nerdfiles.net/2011/10/27/report-on-resistentialism-by-paul-jennings/

Tell that to my wife -- when she buys something electronic she says to me "read the manual and tell me what's in it" (like that's ever going to happen :-)
