I love a good joke but I try not to be a jerk. Lemme know if I am at any point.
If, when you were a kid, one of the other brats at school one day said, "Everything on the playground belongs to me," would it matter to you if he had a piece of paper affirming his claim? Would it matter if his dad said it was true? If a few bullies backed him up, would that matter?

If you're poor, you hoard books.
If you are rich you have a library.
