Finders, Keepers

Quotes from the introduction in my property book:
"Possession is eleven points in the law." -- Colley Cibber
This reminded me of the best scene in This is Spinal Tap, with the "But this one goes to eleven" exchange. I wonder if the Spinal Tap quote was influenced by the property quote, or if it was just a coincidence. It was probably just a coincidence, but the similarity made me laugh.

Here's the final quote from the intro to the property book:
"Finders keepers, losers weepers." -- Old Scottish Proverb
Eloquent, isn't it?
