A snippet of married life

Had this conversation with my other half last night:

Me: Why won't you ever let me have the remote?
Him: The TV is mine.
Me: What? You really consider the television all yours?
Him: Well no, not really. Well, sort of.
Me: What about the stove? Is that part mine?
Him: Oh sure. You can use that.
Me: I see. So I suppose the vacuum cleaner is half mine too?
Him: Exactly.

I'm sorry, but this is kind of a "duh." Men own the remote; this is well known.

From Genesis 1 (apocryphal edition):

[22] And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
[23] And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
[24] Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
[25] And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
[25a] And the LORD God made he a remote control and said onto Adam, Be thou the keeper of this remote, and have dominion over it, and it was so.
