I am by nature acquisitive, an indiscriminate lover of things.  Imagine an avio-reptilian totem:  a dragon, a magpie, and topping it all, Scrooge MacDuck in his coin-filled bathtub.  It isn’t the money itself–it’s the having that counts.  If the Duck put his money away in honest, hard-working FICA approved accounts, he would sit around all day, playing with his myriad passbooks.  Or jewelled bank card holders.  It’s all about the loot.  The stuff.  The junk.  The trash.
