The composer can't finish his song, so he goes upstairs to bed, and as he's
drifting off he hears a beautiful melody played on the piano. He comes down
stairs and sees his song finished on the table. He records it and makes a
big hit and a ton of money.
The process repeats several times. The composer is now rich. Out of
curiosity he stays up one night and sees a mouse coming out to work on his
songs, confronts the mouse and profusely thanks him for the great songs and
asks him what he can do to repay the mouse for his effort. The mouse thinks
for a second and says "split the publishing?" The composer says, "Fuck you."
