Here's how it works:
There is a golden Sharpie. It is the most coveted possession known to mankind (who wouldn't want a golden Sharpie?). This is a one-sentence battle for the Sharpie.
P1: I snatch the Sharpie from the office-supply-eating bear and put it in my pocket.
P2: I hire a pickpocket to get the Sharpie
P3: I am the pickpocket. I run away with the Sharpie.
I have the Sharpie in a bucket on my desk.
