    In an episode of the BBC's New Tricks there was a character named Pat the Rat who was serving time in prison for arson. His technique was to soak a rat's fur with petrol, touch a match, and set it free in the target building (hence his name).

    While he was imprisoned somebody else started using this method and he was incensed. He complained bitterly, "That's theft of my intellectual property." 

    Yeah, Rosie, stealing ideas is a low act.

    That is a funny bizarre TV segment for sure! I think so too. Very low. Taking credit for things having nothing at all to do with you. Trump does that 24/7. He is a YOOOOGE thief! Thank you for your reply Didge! :)
